Ladies and gentlemen, this is a Eurovision flashback post. When Greece and Eurovision are mentioned in one sentence, everyone thinks of Helena Paparizou and her glorious winning moment. On second thought though, there has only been one entry post-win that actually had potential to bring the contest in Greece and slay the entire Europe; and that has to be Kalomira with “Secret Combination”. From the very first moment the acts for 2008’s Greek final were announced, she was everyone’s favorite and managed to win the others effortlessly. Then, she went on to become Europe’s sweetheart in zero time with promo performances here and there and the final countdown till the grand final in Serbia. Kalomira was known as Greece’s sweet lil’ girl, but that completely changed ever since she got on the ESC stage; she was now a woman, grown-up, still sweet and innocent but with the sex appeal to seduce every male on the planet and a body to die for. She literally had that secret combination. First of all, the song was an uptempo pop track with lots of Greek elements but catchy as hell and easily a stand-out in that year’s contest. Her vocals had that extra cuteness, featuring her very own accent and a unique tone, especially crafted by Gods make pop music. She also looked fantastic, with a really toned, killer body and a ten-million-dollar smile never leaving her face. Add fancy colors -pink overload!-, choreography, smoke, an open book, an on-stage costume change and even more cuteness in the mix, and here you have a stunning performance filled with true brilliance. Unfortunately, Kalomira finished third that year, when everyone was rooting for her to get that first place and every Greek on the planet who felt her energy was confident she would win that fuckery. No one was really disappointed in her when she didn’t though, ‘cause you could tell she had done her absolute best to deliever such an incredible performance. Greeks were just mad at Europeans for not giving our girl the recognition she deserved. However, post-final, Kalomira went on to become a true Eurovision princess and to this day, during Greece’s performance at the finals, millions of people agree that she has to go back there. The Eurovision throne is definitely made for Kalomira to sit on and it’s waiting for her to go and get it sometime in the coming years. I doubt she will, but one can dream.
