She won Eurovision 2005 with the ethno-pop song “You’re My Number One.” He won the Eurovision 2016 televote with his infectious dance number “You Are The Only One.”
And on Tuesday Greek-Swedish singer Helena Paparizou and Russian heartthrob Sergey Lazarev came together to steal the show at the MAD VMAs in Athens, performing Sergey’s Eurovision number to rapturous applause.
Thirty-four-year-old Helena nailed the pop princess look, slipping into a black playsuit with plunging neckline and a glittering translucent cape.

She elongated her well-oiled legs in a pair of sky-high stilettos adding height to her gorgeous and slender frame, while Sergey kept it simple in an all-black number that showed off his taut body.
The performance began with Sergey standing centre stage in front of a mass of people covered by a large plastic bag.
But amid all those bodies the Eurovision 2016 singer still knew who his lady was, as Helena stood to his right looking absolutely fabulous.
While Sergey handled the song’s opening, Helena took the first chorus and second verse, running her perfectly manicured hands down his gym-honed chest.
Their apparent physical chemistry extended to the vocals.
Although they didn’t make too much of an effort to harmonise, the addition of a feminine voice to the verses and chorus did add a lovely new dimension.
Helena really brought it home toward the end, belting it out “Survivor” style after the bridge.
She was clearly thrilled with how things went, writing on Instagram: “Thank you @sergeylazarev for this amazing duet on stage!!” She punctuated her comments with two heart emojis and the hashtag #youretheonlyone.
