Greeks pick their Eurovision number one

The Greeks have chosen the song ‘My Number One’ for Helena Paparizou to sing at the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest final on 21 May.

Voting during the Greek national final yesterday evening was split between a jury and SMS/Televoters. The nine jury members accounted for 40% of the overall vote. Helena mimed each of the songs rather than sing live to ensure that each was heard at its best.

During a live show from the Fever Music Centre in Athens, Paparizou sang three songs. She was joined on stage by guest stars that will also be performing at the 2005 contest. Chiara from Malta, Glennis Grace from the Netherlands, Angelica Agurbash from Belarus and Marian van de Wal from Andorra were there to perform their Eurovision songs. There were also appearances from Swedish group Alcazar and the runner up from 2004, Zeljko Jocksimovic.

The result:

1st: My Number One - 66.47%
2nd: OK - 24.55%
3rd: Let’s get Wild - 8.98%
