Could Kalomira be returning to Eurovision for Greece?

August 16, 2021


It has been rumoured that Greece’s 2008 Eurovision participant, Kalomira, is interested in returning to Eurovision, and is considering to sing for Greece once again at the 2022 contest in Italy.

It has been rumoured that Kalomira is working with her record label, Heaven Music, to prepare something that they will send to Greek broadcaster ERT for Eurovision 2022. However, none of this has been confirmed by the broadcaster. All we know so far is that Greece is expected to begin preparations for next years contest in October.

This is not the first time that Kalomira has been rumoured to be returning to Eurovision though. It was reported that American-Greek singer, who achieved 3rd place for Greece in Eurovision 2008, was a potential candidate for Greece in Eurovision 2018 and 2020. She was also rumoured to be a potential candidate for Cyprus in Eurovision 2021, before COVID-19 travel restrictions between the USA and Europe rendered this impossible.

Greece in Eurovision:

Greece have participated in Eurovision a total of 41 times. They made their debut in 1974 with Marinella and her song “Krasi, thalassa ke t’agori mou”. They participated every year up until 1998, with varying results. They returned in 2001 with a top 3 finish, and just four years later, Helena Paparizou achieved Greece’s first and only victory, bringing the 2006 contest to Athens. Since the introduction of the semi finals, Greece has only missed out on qualifcation twice – in 2016 and 2018.
