Vangelis Kakouriotis puts rumors to rest in his latest interview for the Greek publication, Star saying that he would definitely say “Yes” to a potential Eurovision participation.
The immensely young and talented singer has been rumored as a potential Greek or Cypriot Eurovision representative for a few years now. Many of his fans think that he could be the one that will give Greece their long desired comeback to the Eurovision Top 10.
However, could Cyprus’s enthusiastic approach for the contest sway him to the neighboring country?
Snippet or a mouthful
When directly asked about his plans regarding a potential Eurovision participation, this is what Vangelis had to say:
I would be interested, yes and if the opportunity arises I will take it. It’s a great event worth participating in. When the time comes, me and my co-workers will have faith in the song that the project will produce. I want it to be worth it!Vangelis Kakouriotis ; Star Greece
The “golden boy” of the Greek music scene is signed to Panik Records, which is a home for plenty of former Eurovision representatives from the region, such as Ivi Adamou, Demy and Eleni Foureira.
All the signs
Interestingly enough, if the Greek MAD VMA Awards serve as a pattern, Vangelis might just be hinting his Eurovision participation.
Each year a current Eurovision star is invited as a special guest. This time around it was Vangelis who joined forces with Switzerland’s Luka Hänni on a English/Greek version of his Eurovision 2019 entry titled “She Got Me (Pósa xérei)”.
Additionally, in 2016 Demy joined Bulgaria’s Poli Genova in a performance for her Eurovision entry “If Love Was a Crime”
Could this be a sign of things to come? Let us know in the comments what you thought of Luca’s performance and whether you would be happy to see Vangelis at the contest one day?
