The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 is well underway now and we’ve finished the second semi-final that had 17 countries competing for a chance to perform in the grand finale, coming this Saturday night on BBC One.
Among all of the countries taking to the stage in Rotterdam was Greece, which is being represented by 18-year-old singer Stefania Liberakakis – the youngest performer in the contest this year.
But age did not stop Stefani and she made it to the final with her song Last Dance, a soaring number that impressed the judges and the viewers at home.
Read on for everything we know about Stefani, Greece’s Eurovision 2021 entry.
Who is representing Greece at Eurovision 2021?
Born in Utrecht, The Netherlands, to a Greek family, Stefania first rose to fame when she competed in The Voice Kids (Netherlands), where she reached the Battle round.
She then went on to compete 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 and she’s carved out a very successful solo career for herself since then.
In 2019, she performed at the Mad VMA music awards, as part of an all-girl cover of Daddy Yankee’s Con Calma. The video of the performance has clocked up over 2.5 million views.
What is Greece’s Eurovision 2021 song called?
Stefania will be singing Last Dance following the song Superg!rl that she was set to perform in the abandoned 2020 competition.
Last Dance was written by Dimitris Kontopoulos, the group ARCADE and Sharon Vaughn.
Where did Greece come in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest?
Greece took part in the 2019 Eurovision singing contest with the song Better Love, which was sang by Katerine Duska.
Unfortunately, they only finished in 21st place with 74 points. If you want to know how far that was in points from the top spot.
When is Eurovision 2021?
The Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final will take place on Saturday 22nd May 2021 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
BBC One will be broadcasting live coverage of the event, while Graham Norton commentates.
Ken Bruce will be providing commentary on BBC Radio 2.
The semi-finals will be held on Tuesday 18th and Thursday 20th May, and will be broadcast on BBC Four.
Why was Eurovision 2020 cancelled?
If you don’t know why the Eurovision Song Contest was cancelled in 2020 then where have you been and can we come and stay there too?
It was of course due to the pandemic that the event, like almost every other event of 2020, was pulled and we have been needing a Eurovision fix for some time now.
