In her Eurovision 2021 song, Greece’s Stefania sings of a “rockin’ romance”. And now the 18-year-old star is rocking up the Eurovision 2021 odds table amid rumours that her staging will be next level.

On March 15, Greece was the 15th favourite to win Eurovision 2021 with odds of 59/1. A month later she has moved past Moldova, Russia, San Marino, Finland and Cyprus to become 10th favourite with a price of 28/1. Yes, her odds have basically halved! A lot of folks are convinced that she is the dark horse — or should we say dark pegasus?! — of the year.

Eurovision 2021 odds: Greece enters the Top 10 of the betting table

A post shared by wiwibloggs (@wiwibloggs)

Greek fans will be thrilled. In recent months Stefania has enjoyed immense goodwill in the country, where she’s appeared in a number of magazines, including on the cover of Gala, the biggest of the celebrity mags. What’s more, songwriter Dimitris Kontopoulos, who wrote both of Stefania’s Eurovision songs, had extra time to get to know her as an artist following the cancellation of Eurovision. “Last Dance” really suits her.

So what’s driving the bookies to slash the odds? It’s reports that Stefania is attempting staging that’s never been seen at Eurovision before.

Katja Zwart, a journalist at Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, said the staging may “have something to do with the Pegasus or with Atlas and the Earth that he holds in his hands,” as we saw in the music video.

As ESC Portugal reports, she also referred to a recent interview with Head of Contest Twan van de Nieuwenhuijzen. In an interview with AD he referred to a country — which Katja says is Greece — that will have epic staging. He said:

“Of course I won’t mention names, but there is, for example, an act that didn’t catch my eye at first. But from what I know they are going to take a big risk with their stage presentation.”

“That will be a challenge for our director. I saw video footage of it from a small gym somewhere in Europe. If their plans work, it will be something that I know has never been done before.”

Are you excited to find out what Stefania will unveil on the Eurovision stage? Do you think she should have been in the Top 10 ages ago anyway? Let us know in the comments box below.

Am I the only one who thinks that the big staging plans have to do with a transformation of the outfit during the bridge? I think the designer was asked to come up with a design using fabric that is light sensitive or even heat sensitive (if spotlights hit her directly on stage) so it can change by the end of the bridge as we see it happen on the video clip. Rumor has it that her dress has been sent to Rotterdam for the stand-in rehearsals. To be honest, I hope I’m wrong. Although I think it’s a good… Read more »

Just to say that Fokas Evangelinos has never disappointed us. Even if some songs like ”La Venda”, ”X my Heart” or ”This is Love” got mediocre results, guess what, if it wasn’t Fokas in the staging, they would go much lower sadly. This man is an Eurovision EXPERT

I honestly think “Last Dance” is a pretty good song on its own merits. Provided Stefania can deliver a good vocal performance live, I think it is easily one of the top 10 entries of the competition.

I just hope they don’t overdo it with the staging, as they did with Katrine Duska’s entry. I mean, “Better Love” was a brilliant song, but there was too much pink and silliness on that stage.

My main goal this year is to watch the contest and judge the contestants as if I wasn’t informed or hyped up about a specific song. I think what mr. van de Nieuwenhuijzen did will only affect Stefania negatively, because it creates hype for no reason. I love the song and Stefania and I’m sure an EBU employee would never lie about a country’s staging, especially if it’s not his own country. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Australia’s MAGNIFICENT staging in 2019 was first seen during the rehearsals and Australia immediately became the 2nd favourite to win (they lost… Read more »

This has an almost “apotheotic”/epic sound which isn’t usual for bops. That alone makes it a dark pegasus because it can pull a lot of viewers in sonically. Also, Stefania is a legitimate celebrity in the Netherlands and would be the likely beneficiary of a Dutch televote in addition to Greek diaspora support.

I don’t know.. Rumors? staging? hype? We all know better than this. The only song in the last 10 years to win because of staging alone is Heroes. Nobody was able to accomplish the same effect even since, because Eurovision is not all about staging. Australia in 2019 had the potentially best staging a delegation could hope for (even though it was cheesy af) and they didn’t even enter the top 10. This is nothing more that another spin for Eurofans to have something to toy with. The rehearsal week will change everything. It’s a waste of time to even… Read more »

I said that greece’s staging will be groundbreaking only if they succeed technically in Rotterdam. The performance is challenging I’m not guaranteeing anything but that’s a chance you take when you bet. All I know is that the Greek team has something special coming and I hope it is successful! Also don’t forget that 98% of the people watching eurovision on the night know nothing about each country. So spreading rumors and creating hype amongst 2% of the viewers really doesn’t have a negative impact 😉 also I wouldn’t be spreading false rumors I only spread fact based rumors

Bookmakers are late to the party as usual but this isn’t news to me. I find this to be clearly the strongest of the female dance-pop songs this year, is fronted by a good performer and had the potential to be staged well.
For me, it was always just a question of whether Greece were going to put in the effort to present this as it should be. Thankfully, it sounds like they’re at least trying and the chance to get a *really* good result is there.

There’s a lot of countries that are riding last year’s hype but took a step down this year and won’t perform as well (i.e. Iceland, Romania, Bulgaria). Greece is the opposite. The song is better than last year and will outperform. I don’t see how anyone can say Iceland, for example, is objectively better than Greece.

Yeah but organizers are saying that this is a never been done staging and greece’s staging will be used as a template by many other countries in the upcoming eurovision song contests. We are not only talking about a good staging that greece will give us. We are talking about a new innovation that will redefine eurovision in the coming years. For example Azerbaijan 2010 introduced the fire teardrop background that has been used by many countries ever since. I know what greece’s staging is but im saying nothing! Be patient until the rehearsals because we will be talking about… Read more »

With the difference that in 2018 and 2019 (I will also count 2017, which after some live performances freefalled in the odds) the expectations in that period were much bigger (in 2019 even Greece was the favourite to win their semifinal, which they almost did with the juries). On the other side, Stefania’s expectations weren’t that high outside from Greece and The Netherlands in 2020 (19th in the odds before cancellation and if the Contest actually happened we might have even seen her lower). That’s why this year bookmarkers are playing safe with Greece. If Cyprus sent Last Dance and… Read more »

You are hating on Destiny everytime on every article Destiny is not a Netta-wannabe let me guess you said that because her song is about female empowerment guess what there were female empowerment songs in ESC before Netta then is Tamara North Macedonia 2019 also a Netta-wannabe because her song was also about female empowerment.Also her song last year was different then this year songs also she did not write and produce the song.

Greece is my favourite entry this year. The song is very current, and I think that the 80s vibe will work very well with all age groups. She is very charismatic, and definitely very good looking. If the staging is as good as they say she can easily win.

Not true. Its just that Greece sent good entries in 2018 and 2019 and they got the hype that they deserved, but they failed at the staging ultimately. I dont remember Demys song in 2017 getting any hype, or Argos song in 2016 getting any hype, because they were not good songs.

Its not up to you only to decide if its deserving of top 5 or not, the whole Europe will.
Theres not good or bad music, only music that most people enjoy and music that most peple dont.
And are we pretending that Mans didnt win with a mediocre song thanks to staging, over the amazing Italy that year? So its a Song+Vision contest.

I mean: I dont personally like France and I say it, but Im not gonna say thats its not a top 5 song coz many other people may like it and the majority will decide that. There are many songs over the year that ended up in the top 5 that I personally hated. Now, if you said it as… Read more »

EBU decided that because of Covid there would be no backing vocals this year. So that countries didn’t have to travel with all those extra people. And then we read about countries seeking limits of what is possible during their staging. Maybe EBU didn’t have their priorities in the right place.

What I like with this information guys is that information comes from the organisers not from the Greek team themselves.. Otherwise we would have again all the wiwi trolls attacking all of Greece and Stefania’s fans for having no right to vote for her in the polls or like her song etc etc.. For me and many others here in the UK I have asked about this, Last Dance is indeed the dark horse for so many reasons. Great melody, great vocals, fresh beautiful Stefania who can also dance and now we hear that there will be an epic staging.… Read more »

Excuse me but Duska served the worst Greek staging the last 20 years. She was amazingly stressed, the vocals were too bad…and she killed a lovely and innovative song…artistic as well I agree.

If I remember well, once in a while, a country risks with their staging. In 2013, the epic staging of Hold Me still shocks me (I can’t imagine how he did all of these moves in that small space). Then, Sergey Lazarev managed a great result after bringing an amazing show in 2016. Then Estonia in 2018 also amazed (notable mention of 2018 is also Finland), with Australia in 2019 making something we will most likely never see again in the future. What I expect is to see Stefania flying. Either in Pegasus or not if she brings the vocals… Read more »

Theres no way they are bringing pegasus on stage. Since horses ( animals ) arent allowed on stage, I cant think of a way for them to do it that wont be looking extremely tacky.
Stefania said that she will have on stage only 1 element from her videoclip, and thats probably the light on the bridge of the song thats flooding everywhere.
