Attention all Eurovision fans out there!
Stefania Liberakakis, who saw her Eurovision dream dashed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, will return to represent Greece in the song contest this year with a brand-new song.
Eurovision 2021 will be held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in May.
Her entry for the upcoming competition, entitled ‘Last Dance’ will be released in March.
According to sources, the track has a positive, hopeful message.
“I fell in love with the melody of this song from the first moment I listened to it. I can’t wait to fly to Athens and record the final version, so you all can hear it soon!!” Stefania posted on social media.
‘Last Dance’ is the song creation by composer group Arcade together with well-known Eurovision veteran Dimitris Kontopoulos, who composed Stefania’s 2020 entry ‘SUPERG!RL’. The lyrics are written by Sharon Vaughn.
Last year the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of the contest for the first time in its 64-year history. But instead of cancelling it all together, the song contest decided to air a live two-hour special, Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light.
Stefania Liberakakis, 18, was born in Utrecht, the Netherlands, to a Greek family. She rose to fame in 2014 when she competed in The Voice Kids (the Netherlands), where she reached the Battle round.
She is no stranger to the Eurovision scene, as she represented the Netherlands at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest as part of the group ‘Kisses’, where they finished in 8th place.
In 2018, the young singer released her first solo single ‘Stupid Reasons’.
Good luck Stefania and we can’t wait to follow your exciting journey!
