We continue the National Final Reminder with something from 2006. Today, we will travel to Greece.
Greece back in 2006 decided its representative through Feel the Party, the national selection of the country that year. At the national final, Anna Vissi, who has already been internally selected perform four songs with the viewers and the jury deciding the winning entry.
The song “Welcome to the Party” was one of the 4 songs that competed that night. The song managed to finish 2nd beaten by “Everything”. The song was composed by the Eurovision legend Dimitris Kontopoulos, while the lyrics were written by Dimitris S.
Anna Vissi was born on 20 December 1957, in Larnaca, Cyprus. With a career that spreads in more than four decades, Anna Vissi is one of the biggest female artists of Greece and Cyprus. She has released 28 studio albums, all of which with great success. Except for singing, she is a songwriter, actress, television presenter and businesswoman. She has participated in a total of three times in Eurovision, two times for Greece (1980, 2006) and one time for Cyprus (1982). Her best placing was for Cyprus when she finished 5th with 85 points. Her most recent album came out earlier this year and it is titled “Iliotropia”, which means “Sunflowers”. The album topped the Greek charts.
