Greece: Freaky Fortune rises to the occasion

Greece has chosen ‘Rise Up’ as its Eurovision entry. In their national final A Mad Show, four songs competed and Freaky Fortune feat. Riskykidd took the final victory. Their song ‘Rise Up’ beated i.a. Kostas Martakis.

The Greek final was filled up with a lot of videos and guest performances, with the actual songs taking up not even half of the actual show. In between all these extra’s, Kostas Martakis for a while seemed the audience favorite, but in the end Freaky Fortune & Riskykidd took the televoting.

Their song is a modern fusion of club music with some hiphop elements. Greece has a perfect record in the semi finals, never failing to qualify. This year, they will participate in the second semi final on Thursday May 8th.
