If you love a Greek diva, The Voice of Greece was your place to go last Sunday as Helena Paparizou and Tamta teamed up for a throwback performance. The duo got together to perform some 90s and early 00s classics for the Greek audience, which no doubt went down well.
Tamta brings back the 90s
Dressed in shiny silver with some fierce green eyes, Tamta took the stage to perform songs we all know – and love. As she entered the stage, Helena Paparizou got up from her coaching chair and joined her. The duo treated us to wonderful renditions of La Bouche’s Be My Lover and Gala’s Freed From Desire. After that, they brought us a slow version of Kylie Minogue’s 2001 chart hit Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.
On her Instagram, Tamta celebrated the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest winner, stating she was one of those who went out on the streets of Athens when Helena Paparizou won the contest. She went on to add that it is always an honour to share the stage with her.
Can Helena Paparizou win?
Helena Paparizou has been a member of the coaching staff on The Voice of Greece since 2016. Sadly, none of her talents have ever won the show in the four previous seasons. Kostas Maraveyas and Sakis Rouvas were the winning coaches in the past four seasons. In fact, none of Helena’s acts have ever made the top three, with the 2018 season being the saddest of them all: Team Helena entered the eight act final with a grand total of three acts, who were all eliminated in Round 1, meaning they shared fourth place.
Tamta responded to Helena’s bad run on The Voice of Greece, stating she was hoping her colleague would for once manage to win the show. The former Eurovision winner will be hoping for her first win too. We’ll only find out about that in 2021.
The Voice of Greece airs every Sunday night on Skai TV in Greece and Sigma TV in Cyprus. Perhaps we’ll see Helena Paparizou perform her latest single, Deja Vu, in one of the next few shows…?
