The song was premiered on the ERT television show Eurovision Countdown this afternoon. The “SUPERG!RL” video was given a first play on the channel, giving fans a first look at what Stefania will be bringing with her Eurovision entry.
The song has a powerful message. The broadcaster says it’s about encouraging “teenagers to believe in themselves and go after their dreams. It narrates Stefania’s own story since, as a young woman she has had to find the power to combine her obligations as a student with her dream of singing.”

Song composer Dimitris Kontopoulos talked about the challenge of finding the right song for Stefania. He said, “To be honest it was difficult to find the right song for her, since we wanted the track to fit both her age and personality.”
Kontoupolos also gave a shout-out to his musical collaborators, saying, “It is the first time I collaborate for Eurovision with Arcade, a very talented young group of songwriters and producers from Greece, while it’s always an honour working with Sharon Vaughn, a great lyricist and woman.”
The concept behind the “SUPERG!RL” music video
The “SUPERG!RL” music video was helmed by Greek director Kostas Karydas. It was shot in four different locations around Athens.
Karydas explained the ideas behind the video. He said, “We came up with a story with surrealistic elements. We followed a young woman who finds the strength to embrace her special abilities in a society that perceives her as an outcast. It is a journey to explore her inner strength.”
He also praised Stefania for her professionalism and ability to draw on her acting skills to bring the video concept to life.
