Greek broadcaster ERT has confirmed that Gianna Terzi will represent the country in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest with the song 'Oneiro mou' following an internal selection.
Gianna Terzi was born in 1980 and began performing professionally in 2005. After releasing several successful albums she relocated to the United States. Said to be inspired by artists including Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Michael Jackson, Gianna is no stranger to performing in front of large crowds - something that will come in useful when she appears at Eurovision in Lisbon!
Gianna's entry for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest is called Oneiro mou which translates as 'My Dream'. Check out the official lyric video below!
Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest
Greece first entered the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 but until the country won in 2005, it had only finished in the top five on four occasions. The new millennium saw a reversal in Greece's fortunes in the contest which saw the country achieve its first victory and an unprecedented string of top ten finishes. Since the semi-finals were introduced Greece has only once failed to qualify for the Grand Final.
Gianna Terzi will perform in the second half of the First Semi-Final of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest on Tuesday 8th May.
