Last month she joined the Airplay Top 10 in Greece with her Eurovision 2017 single “This Is Love”.
And last week Demy kept the momentum going with the news that Sweden’s Capital Music will promote her track throughout Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, helping it achieve success on prominent radio stations and on Spotify and iTunes.
The label — which also represents Sweden’s Eurovision 2017 star Robin Bengtsson and Melodifestivalen alum Lisa Ajax — announced the news on its Facebook page last Tuesday.
Demy on the MAD Catwalk
Demy, who recently wrapped her final performance in Mamma Mia! the musical, hasn’t had time to dwell on the news.
On April 21 she presented the extended mix of her track during the annual MAD Walk fashion show, which was broadcast on Alpha TV.
Wearing a red dress with a very deep thigh split, she more than held her own with the models who paraded down the catwalk as she belted it out in front of a floral wall.
From 3:10 in the video below you’ll see Demy working it Eurovision’s Next Top Model style as she leaves her small platform and stomps it out to bring the song home.
Having proven her fashion cred, Demy is now busy rehearsing non-stop with legendary stage director Fokas Evangelinos and vocal coach Alex Panayi.
According to the vice president of INFE Greece, Mr. Makis Charalambopoulos, Fokas’ staging will include six people — Demy and five dancers/backing vocalists.
Mr. Charalambopoulos also revealed their names. They are Erasmia Makridi, an actor and singer who has worked in a band and done dubbing for Disney films; Evgenia Liakou, an English teacher who also works as an actor, singer and dancer and has a love of musicals; Markos Gikoumoglou, a dancer and vocalist who performed in the interval of Eurovision 2006 in Athens; Iason Mandilas, a former athlete turned performer who has worked with the likes of Anna Vissi and Ivi Adamou; and Paris Paraskevadis-Planets, a singer/actor known for taking part in the X Factor (2009) and The Voice (2016).
The teasers released above don’t give us much of a clue about what we’ll see in Kyiv. However, given Fokas Evagelinos’ history at Eurovision — he staged Sergey Lazarev, Ani Lorak and Helena Paparizou — the chances are he won’t disappoint.
