This Greek epic has got a re-write! Greece’s Yianna Terzi recently took to the internet to debut some of the English-language version of her Eurovision 2018 entry, “Oniro Mou”. Performed entirely acapella, the English version – titled “Eternity” – appeared on her Instagram earlier in the week.
For her performance, Yianna was joined by long-time rumoured Greek act, Stereo Soul.
Yianna Terzi ft. Stereo Soul — “Eternity”
Those harmonies give us all the feels. Yianna sounds in great voice live – and it’s interesting to hear the song in the new language.
Of course, she won’t be performing alongside Stereo Soul at Eurovision, but Yianna has also given us a teaser of what we might hear in Lisbon. She shared a video on her Facebook of one of her vocal rehearsals. It looks like there’s going to be plenty of Greek vocal power in the Altice Arena!
In keeping with Greek tradition of late, Yianna has not appeared at any of the Eurovision Pre-Party events. Instead, she’s been focusing on working out the song back at home.
The only live performance we’ve seen of the song so far has been her recent performance at the MadWalk charity event.

Whilst the performance might not be fully live, Yianna certainly looks the part on stage. She worked that runway, y’all! As always with Greece, we’re expecting a big stage show in Lisbon too.
Yianna currently sits 10th in the betting odds to win Eurovision — could that rise further when we see her rehearsals?
What do you think of “Eternity”? Would you like to hear the full song in English, or should Yianna stick to Greek? Let us know all your thoughts in the comments section below!
These harmonies are heaven! And her voice sounds amazing! Slay girl!
Absolutely adored those harmonies! Love this song in both languages!
I dont worry about vocals, Yianna has a good voice and Victoria Halkiti who is the vocal coash is perfect on what she does and very experienced. I really worry about the staging. Its difficult to nail it but if they do, this is top5 for sure.

I love this song and language. Kisses from ur geitonas Turkey:*
THIS is love!
Greece this year deserves top 3! This is my favorite song this year but I think Isreal can’t be beaten this year! But you never know… 😉
Greetings from Russia brothers. <3
I agree , if they nail the live show, it should be top 3. It’s my personal winner. Unfortunately I think that Israel will win too.
Thanks, wiwibloggs. Better late than ever 🙂
Love the song, hoping for an awesome stage but I’m ready to be disappoitned :p
This is Greece s biggest chance for a great result after five years. Congrats Yianna!
The Greek version is better I think. The English version is OK, but I get the feeling they’re trying to cram English words into a pre-existing rhythm. Ughh! As for the online rehearsal video posted online, it is very strong. It was Yianna, 3 female vocalists and one male vocalist. In Lisbon, there may also be a male dancer on stage with them, but this has not yet been confirmed. Yianna stated that she wants to have blue and white colored lighting on stage, but she doesn’t want to overdo the traditional elements. She wants it to feel modern, rather… Read more »
Dear Chris – let’s have a poll to vote between entries with ethno vibes! Because I think that those entries belong to Eurovision – I hope we will always have them.
With your new design I have lost my monster although I am using the same e-mail address. I want it back please! What do I have to do?
We’re looking at the easiest way for people to sort the comment pictures 🙂
Ok, we will see how I end up looking at wiwibloggs 😉 thanks for the reply.
My lovely monster is back. Thanks 😉
Super boring.. if there is a wiwi pool What’s your most boring song this year, Greece would win
This contest is in the framework of a European Song Contest based supposedly on European diversity and quality ( lyrics, production, performance) . Who said songs must be funny to be good?
Hey ‘most boring’ song won last year, are you #triggered?
Greece is trying to copy 1944 from Jamala in 2016. Sounds dramatically and sad but not epic. This song doesn’t sounds modern. This year the winner has to be modern, different and EPIC.
But for Eurovision it could be great unfortunately.
@Jamala, everything you wrote about is a description of the opposite of the real situation. Actually, Greece didn’t try to copy anything this year, but it sends a unique, epic, mystical and ethnic song, based on ancient Greek vibes, beautifully blended with modern sounds. Now, tell us, which is that song which you find “modern, different and epic” this year if that’s not Greece?
Stereo Soul for 2019? Just saying…
Hopefully Areti Ketime.
Hopefully not, she is not suit for Eurovision. Too traditional. Marina Satti is a better choice in my opinion
Marina Satti would indeed be an awesome choice as long as her song would be a characteristic Marina Satti song. I am living for her unique music style!
I love her. She as an artist is really unique and down to earth, and if she ever wants to participate, i want her to have an amazing song and win.
I love Areti, ”Dimitrula mu” in her version is on repeat! 🙂
If Greece makes a national final again I would love to see a nostalgia medley of ‘this is love/rain falls from above’ – ‘don’t forget the sun’ – ‘utopian land’, performed live by Shaya and with a sign language expert.
This song deserves top ten more than any other hyped entries this year such as those by Australia, Bulgaria, Norway, Sweden and of course Israel. It carries quality and European essence. Portugal, Italy, Spain, Greece or France would be well deserved winners in a European Song Contest.
Totally agree. Portugal is so, so underrated, I hope voters won’t forget her. I also like Bulgaria’s song. I wouldn’t mind if anyone of the above wins the contest!
Agree…. though not in Bulgarian entry hehe no essence under my opinion, but great performers.
Portugal is just beyond beautiful!
I gotta admit I missed somehow Portugal, but now the more I listen, more I like it, I like her chill boho style 🙂
Actually the greek song doesn’t sounds modern and epic. So, yeah it could be the perfect winner.
Some music is timeless Jamala, especially ethnic like the Greek or romantic like the Spanish . And epic will depend on the goose bumps by the performamce.
You lost me at Spain and Greece. By your logic, songs like Serbia, Armenia, Montenegro or Slovenia would also be top ten material, when in reality all those four songs are average at best. It’s not just an “European vibe” that makes a song a Eurovision winner, it’s the whole package on the night.
Totally agree. It is the whole package for me including European essence. Greece and Spain have it under my opinion. Portugal too. I also like France Italy and Armenia. Montenegro is ok…. And I don’t like Slovenia, Serbia and Albania, though Eugent is a great performer but with an average song. Hope you get now my point .
The Greek lyrics sounds more poetic, that’s for sure. Interesting vocal abilities, the staging’s definetely gonna make it or break it. I can see this winning in the end, tho, it gives me Jamala and Salvador’s vibes. Best of luck!
Greece would be an interesting unexpected winner. Just saying.
Because she reminds of Jamala and she doesn’t sounds modern like the past two years in EUROVISION. Yeah, the perfect winner again.
I completely agree
Lol @William Lee Adams trying to damage control the mess they created with a supportive article for once. We’ll take it, thanks.
Just stop. As a Greek i feel so annoyed by all these kind of comments the last few days. Nobody has anything against Greece, for God’s sake. Enough please!
Hey, I said thanks! Let’s hope you’re right. But keep an eye for the usual haters after the semifinal when Greece is in and one of their favs is out (e.g. Finland, in repeat of last year).
Well, Chris was quite supportive on the wiwi jury reaction video. You have to give him that.
stereo soul did such a great job with the backing vocals! this video gave me goosebumps!fingers crossed for a nice staging
I am really proud of our entry this year. I don’t mind it not winning the trophy. A top 5 or at least top 10 placement is still good. My winner is Bulgaria.
This could be so magical with the right staging. Pleaaaaase! And good luck!
Thank you William! Finally!!
Yeah, the perfect winner.
Eurovision needs exactly the same sound/songs every year. Song without modern sound with lots of drama and tears. I suppose the outdated song from ?reece will win.
Nothing new this year again. ?
@Jamala. Aren t you even bored with that? Whenever Greece is mentioned, there you are, nagging and hating. Good luck to your country anyway.
@Jamala se have take it, you dont like the song from Greece, chili down girl, you have post 4 times the same coment, por dios , pesada
The real winner of this year. Strong , epic with beautiful lyrics. All eyes on you at April 30 .
Yea, everyone’s curious to see it live on stage and hear her live there
I have heard her singing it on Facebook but I wasn’t quite satisfied with the outcome :\
its just a cam with microphone dude. you re gonna be satisfied on Monday .
Roy check this video out, the quality is much better! In this Facebook video the quality was really pure and they did not even used any proper microphones.
Exactly! On live her voice doesn’t have that WOW effect.

lool !you are maybe too afraid tha this will actually win and you are trying to accept it with this type of comments …..you are the most obsessed with the greek entry!Even the fans os this song don’t write so many comments!
Did I hurt you with the truth? The fans of this song don’t write many comments? It’s true. only greek fans. 😀
I am not even Greek and I adore this song and I see many non-greek people supporting it .But I shouldn’t tell you this because you will be more mean and you will lose your sleep by writing more hateful comments that you will believe that they are the truth .#boredwiththemaniacs??
L o v e, go Yianna!
I would be very happy if Yanna ends winning the contest, she has a great voice and a strong song.
Just hope that she have an awesome staging also
Dude, her voice is average. Eurovision needs exactly the same sound/songs every year. Song without modern sound with lots of drama and tears. I suppose the outdated song from greece will win.
Nothing new this year again.
On live her voice doesn’t have that WOW effect. 🙂
you are boring and it seems that you haven’t ears!her voice is exactly the same my hateful fan !
