On Saturday, April 18, we met Maria Elena Kyriakou, and the Greek team of this year's Eurovision, in Amsterdam.
After the small final of the Eurovision in Amsterdam’s Melkweg stage, Maria Elena Kyriakou was at the Santorini Greek Tavern, along with friends and fans that passed by to meet her and wish her good luck. She gave us an exclusive interview and described to us with enthusiasm the journey so far and the final way for the Eurovision semi-finals.
A sweet woman with great talent, accompanied by the multi-talented Efthyvoulos Theocharis, will rouse the crowds and will represent us in this year's Eurovision contest in Austria. The Semi-Finals are from May 1 to May 19 and the Grand Final will be on May 23. We are wishing her good luck already! Go Greece!

Lyrics “One last breath”
My soul, I guess I’m just no one
you killed me and I am done, without a gun
my light has fade, I feel betrayed
just can’t be brave, without faith
How could you leave?
I’m begging you take me
wherever you have gone
come back and save me
don’t want to be alone
nothing left, I just have
one last breath
I’ m begging you take me
out of this firing hell
come back and save me
what happened wasn’t fair
nothing left all that I have
is one last breath
only one last breath
Just pain, fake love and drunken lie
Ι struggle to survive, I’m still alive
I’m fighting tears and fears apart
but still it’s dark, inside my heart
