Eurosong 2015 - 04/03/2015 (Greek Eurovision National Final)

fully updated by Paparizou Forum:

Helena appeared at this years’ Greek Eurovison National Final. 2015 marks a decade since Helena's big victory in Kiev in 2005, which was Greece’s only win at the Eurovision Song Contest, which is now in its 60th year. The event was packed full of Helena with either Helena on stage or other artists paying tribute to her. At the beginning of the show, there was a short comedy sketch with the presenters of Eurosong 2015, Mary Sinatsaki and Doretta Papadimitriou and Helena among other special guests:



Then there was a tribute to Helena’s winning entry with members of her Eurovision 2005 team reminiscing about the Eurovision experience:



As a surprise, Helena performed last years winning entry “Rise Like A Phoenix” by Conchita Wurst. Helena energetically performed new single “Love Till It’s Over” with HouseTwins. She started off by singing the acoustic version of “Love Till It’s Over” and reverting to the original up-tempo version by the chorus. Helena returned to the stage at the end of the show to perform her new single “Otan Aggeli Klene” before the announcement of the winner. The performances were choreographed by Billy Messiniatis and George Papadopoulos.

Rise Like A Phoenix:


Love Till It’s Over (HouseTwins feat. Helena Paparizou):


Otan Aggeli Klene:


Prior to the winner's announcement, Helena was invited on stage for a short interview and then she went on to announce the winner's name:


Before presenting their own songs, the contestants covered Helena’s winning song ‘My Number One’ whilst Greek boy band "Boys & Noise" covered her 2001 entry (as a member of Antique) ‘(I would) Die For You’.

The Greek Final was held at Enastron, Athens on 4th March 2015.

Yesterday they posted that she was going to perform my number one and they didn't wrote anything about other songs. But I learned with time that Oikotimes it's not the most reliable site. To give you an example: I write for a portuguese website about eurovision and when the Cyprus national final was on I was preparing the new so I could publish it as soon as possible and they announce some band as a winner before the voting was over. That band ended up 3rd place. Plus, about the greek national final they said like a million names were going to participate and they only got one correct!

Anyway I listened to the snippets of the greek songs and Helena is certainly the only reason to see the show. I just hope it doesn't start to early because I have classes that day (I just realised it's in the same week as the portuguese national final. I will do nothing else that week other than see national finals ahah)

Yes, oikotimes can be a hit or a miss sometimes... but they love Helena so there's definitely something good about them. :P

Not very excited over the entries in this Greek national final either (although I haven't been excited in any Greek national final since 2011 to be perfectly honest) but Helena will definitely spice up the show! I hope it will be a big production...

You are lucky because Helena comes up later. And after the end of the final you will have the chance to watch it full via YouTube

Another reference for GR NF from tralala.gr

Τέλος, άλλος ένας άσσος στο μανίκι των διοργανωτών είναι και η εμφάνιση της αγαπημένης όλων Έλενας Παπαρίζου που θα τραγουδήσει φυσικά το “My number one” μαζί με τους Housetwins σε μία διαφορετική εκδοχή του, αλλά και τα νέα της single “Όταν άγγελοι κλαίνε” και “Love till it’s over”. - See more at: http://www.tralala.gr/pii-kallitechnes- ... bWJEa.dpuf

Tralala.gr editor writes about Helena's upcoming suprise performance with

*My Number One (HouseTwins Remix)
*Love Till It's Over (Not again! I want to see the original with lyra and Fokas choreography :furious: )
*Otan Aggeli Klene

I don't think Helena has performed the 'My Number One' original choreography since Eurovision 2006. I don't think she would even remember the choreography.

I wouldn't mind another remix - it can't be any worse than the Vegas remix from 2013 can it? I cringe every time I hear it.

Maybe Housetwins reach it to the top! Who knows if it will receive a more house electro sound?

Well let's hear the remix first and then we can judge it - I am not that eager about it either but I am looking forward to seeing the choreography for My Number One (I hope it's not as plain as the one for the Greek ESC final 2013) and obviously the other 2 performances!! Time to see the 2 new singles staged for the first time!!

I think I still haven't heard it since the days after her performance at the Greek ESC final in 2013, so I don't allow myself the "luxury" to cringe over it anymore. It really was pretty terrible..
