Next up: 2021 – Greece

Sending a Dutch girl to Rotterdam was the Greek plan for 2020. And now that Eurovision will be held in Rotterdam in 2021 after all, it makes sense to still send Stefania.

In today’s episode we look at Greece in 2021. For a full review of their potential entry for 2020, check out this article on our partner website Eurovision Union. Check out our thoughts for next year below.

Key takeaways: Versatile and easy going

Eurovision is the Olympic Games of music and granted: you generally don’t send a rookie to the big game. There are potential dangers for the Greeks going with a young and inexperienced artist such as Stefania Liberakakis. It is, for example, very possible that nerves will get the better of her. The fact that she has done Junior Eurovision, helps, but this is obviously not the same thing.

However, if the delegation does a good job in preparing her, endless possibilities arise. Stefania, after all, is not limited to a certain style of music yet. Her voice is suitable for anything modern, from electronical ballads to dance songs.

How should Greece proceed with Stefania Liberakakis in Eurovision 2021?

Stefania needs a strong team around her, with skilled vocal coaches, a good stage director and an experienced composer. She needs a song that is suitable for her age. And most of all, she needs guidance and direction, to help her with this huge challenge.

In order to make Eurovision 2021 a success, the Greek delegation needs a very clear plan of what they want to present in Rotterdam. Which musical genre do we go with? Which story do we want to tell on stage and how? These questions all need to be answered long before May 2021. Luckily, there is plenty of time left to prepare.
