Tonight, the Greek Eurovision broadcaster ERT has announced during its evening news broadcast, that Stefania has been chosen to represent Greece with the song “SUPERG!RL”.
During a segment about the Eurovision selection, we were shown an interview with Stefania herself and a montage was shown of her career to date. You can watch the full reveal made by ERT’s Director of International Relations, Maria Koufopoulou below:
Here is Stefania’s reaction to the news on her Facebook account!
Stefania Liberakakis was born in Utrecht in the Netherlands in 2002 although her family are of Greek origin. She is best known to Eurovision fans for participating in the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest as a member of the group Kisses, and their song ‘Kisses and Dancing’ eventually finished in 8th place in Valletta, Malta.
Before the Contest she had also taken part as a contestant in The Voice Kids alongside her Kisses bandmate Sterre. She has been releasing her own material since her solo debut in 2018 with her debut release being titled “Stupid Reasons”. Since then she has followed up with subsequent tracks “Wonder”, “I’m Sorry (Whoops!)” and “Turn Around”.
Will her writing team work their magic?
“SUPERG!RL” is composed by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Arcade. Kontopoulos and Arcade also wrote the lyrics of the song along with Sharon Vaughn, whilst Fokas Evangelinos (Creative Director) will handle the artwork. Dmitris of course has been behind 8 Eurovision Grand Finalists since 2007 with the following tracks:
- Koldun – “Work Your Magic” (Belarus 2007, 6th)
- Ani Lorak – “Shady Lady” (Ukraine 2008, 2nd)
- Sakis Rouvas – “This Is Our Night (Greece 2009, 7th)
- Farid Mammadov – “Hold Me” (Azerbaijan 2013, 2nd)
- Tolmachevy Sisters – “Shine” (Russia 2014, 7th)
- Sergey Lazarev – “You Are The Only One” (Russia 2016. 3rd)
- Demy – ‘This Is Love” (Greece 2017, 19th)
- Sergey Lazarev – “Scream” (Russia 2019, 3rd)
Can his great record continue and take Greece back into a high position? And will Greece be able to beat its 21st place from 2019 where Katarina Duska performed “Better Love”?
