We continue the National Final Reminder with something from 2011. Today, we will travel in Greece.
Greece back in 2011 decided its representative through a national final. Six entries competed in the national selection.
The song “The Time Is Now” was one of those 6 entries performed by Valando Tryfonos. The song was composed by Johan Ramström, Patrik Magnusson and Martti Vuorinen. The entry placed 5th.
Valando Tryfonos was born on March 6, 1988, in Nicosia, Cyprus. At the age of 17, she participated in the Cypriot national final for Eurovision 2006 and placed 4th. She auditioned for the second season of the Greek version of X-Factor, but eliminated before the live shows. Then, she competed in the first season of the Greek version of Idol and won the whole show. After Greek Idol, she competed in the Greek national final, but she didn’t win.
