馃嚞馃嚪 Greece: No announcement earlier than end of January, more details regarding Stefania’s proposed entry emerge

One of the biggest sagas during the pre-season for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest has been the internal selection of the Greek entry which is widely expected to be former Junior Eurovision star Stefania. OGAE Greece has reported that ERT will not make an announcement regarding their selected artist until either the end of January or the beginning of February. The “Scream” team! It had previously been reported that Stefania had been working with Dimitris Kontopoulos on her proposed entry, and EurovisionFun now reports that Sharon Vaughn is the lyricist of the submitted song. Vaughn most recently teamed up with Kontopoulos on Sergey Lazarev’s 2019 Eurovision entry “Scream”. “Will impress the audience and the jury” With some people believing the title of the song could be “Super Woman”, EurovisionFun has given us a description of the song in question (translated from Greek): The song is a dance-pop song with a rap beat. It is in western style but incoporates the Greek sound in its instrumentation as it includes musical instruments such as the continental bagpipe, the zurnas and the violin. The mixing is achieved in a modern way so don’t expect to hear a track like “My Number One” or …
