She’s a mother, a teacher, and a winner of The Voice of Greece. But now Maria Elena Kyriakou is also a Eurovision 2015 contender! The Greek diva, who really knows how to honour the birthplace of drama, recently visited the UK for the London Eurovision Party. Before the show we caught up with the “One Last Breath” singer and discovered a calm but confident contestant.

She appeared relaxed but enthused, and shared her feelings about her Eurovision experience so far. Maria Elena appears to believe in herself. We ask, “Who did you think would win the Greek national selection?” and she speaks the truth.

The MEK has strength and courage, and seems sure that her lovely ballad will finish higher than last year’s “Rise Up”. Her children won’t be able to join her in Vienna, but she assures us that she’ll contact them on a regular basis. She’s a really down-to-earth person, y’all.

I saw on the OGAE Greece news site that our Greek entry is voted 1st on the big poll!
That is very impressive..!
4 the record on the poll you don’t vote your no1 favorite song but your 10 most favorite songs so this first place makes much more sense..
There is positive feedback 4 *One Last Breath* mostly among eurofans..
Last year this was not really the case with our entry in Copenhagen…I was just in the minority of the euro fans that i really liked our *Rise Up*..

I truly think that even our big success in Vision our entries mostly were even underrated in the contest… If the same songs like the one of Helena’s,Kalomira’s etc would get sent by another copuntry like Ukraine or Russia they would do even much better in Vision.. Really unafir that our Helena gathered just 230 points in Kiev when we won… *My Number 1* deserved to win with even more than 300 points! All these baltic countries that always ignore us & give us big fat zero points would award us with even 12 or 10 points if Russia or… Read more »

She has a really good voice… With a fine/great performance she will most likely pass to the grand final.. Not because its Greece…Im only honest here.. Her song is not bad at all & good enough to qualify.. I highly think that the all time record that my country Greece has with giving the present to every grand final of our Vision since 2001 for 14 years now will continue in Vienna with one {& LAST one possibly maybe as next year Greece might be finally OUT & getting eliminated on the SF at last 4 the satisfaction of our… Read more »
