She’s the 17-year-old star who Greece handpicked for Eurovision 2020. And while she’ll have to wait another year to take her turn on that vast stage, Stefania has been keeping busy by making an unplugged version of her 2020 song “Superg!rl”. This also serves as her first live performance of the upbeat and uplifting pop number.
Stefania has done so as part of #Qsessions — an initiative from Greek songwriter and producer Dimitris Kontopoulos. Q, of course, is for quarantine. The maestro behind some of our favourite Eurovision hits wants to keep y’all entertained during lockdown, so he’s been collaborating with some of his beloved Eurovision alums and, in the case of Stefania, a soon-to-be ESC darling.
Writing on Instagram, Stefania said: “Thank you @dimitriskontopoulos for inviting me to your #Qsessions. I would have never imagined that the first time I would sing SUPERG!RL live would be under these circumstances! But don’t forget… ‘nothing can stop us, nothing can hold us down’ #Supergirl #Eurovision #Greece @eurovisionERT @arcade.music @sharon_vaughn.”
Stefania sings “Superg!rl” acoustic version
The video sees Dimitris performing on the keyboard, while a guitarist strums alongside his pooch. Meanwhile, young Stefania — shimmering in purple — delivers angelic vocals. Flowing from deep verses to soaring chorus, she shows that she’s got the chops to tackle this song — and whatever she dreams up for the next edition of Eurovision.
Demy (Greece 2017)
“Poses Hiliades Kalokairia” was the second extended play by Greek singer Demy, who you’ll remember from Eurovision 2017 in Kyiv.
Both the album and the single topped the Greek Albums Chart. Some of you may also have twerked to the dance remix, which is most definitely on our playlists.
Sakis Rouvas (Greece 2004 and 2009)
Sakis Rouvas — one of the few Eurovision artists to have performed at Eurovision multiple times and serve as host — proves that he’s much more than a pop star.
In this performance he lets the emotions flow while he hits each and every note. At times his eyes are shut and he is lost in the moment. 12 points to you Sakis!
