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.
