Greece releases Stefania’s song ‘SUPERG!RL’
Overnight Greece released their song for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam.
Stefania Liberakakis will perform ‘SUPERG!RL’ which is written by singer-songwriter Dimitris Kontopoulos, Sharon Vaughn and Arcade.
For Sharon Vaughn this is her third Eurovision 2020 entry as songwriter. She has co-written ‘What Is Love’ for the Estonian entry by Uku Suviste together with Uku. She also collaborated with Dimitris Kontopoulos and Philipp Kirkorov for Moldova's entry 'Prison' by Natalia Gordienco. Last year they all collaborated together for Russia’s entry ‘Scream’ for Sergey Lazarev.
'SUPERG!RL' sounds contemporary, with an ethnic vibe and as a package suits Stefania's age, who is only 17 years old, keeping the song genuine to Stefania and her capabilities.
Stefania was internally selected by the Greek broadcaster, Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation, ERT, which was announced at the start of February. She is the 41st entry for Greece.
Greece debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974. Over the decades they had various degrees of success until 2001 when Greece finished in third place with Antique’s “(I Would) Die For You” and then on managed to stay in the top 10 for most of the decade and also won the Contest for the first time in 2005 with Helena Paparizou’s “My Number One”.
Stefania was born in 2002 in Utrecht, Netherlands, from a Greek family, where she grew up speaking both Dutch and Greek.
She becomes the fourth female soloist to represent Greece in a row and sixth female soloist in recent decades to represent Greece from the Greek diaspora, including the likes of US born Kalomira, Swedish born Helena Paparizou and last years representative Canadian born Katherine Duska.
Can Stefania with ‘SUPERG!RL’ get Greece back on the left side of the scoreboard and return them to their golden years?
