Erasmia Markides and Eleni Pozantzidou will be joining Katerine as backing singers, whether they will appear as part of the visual performance or not is unknown. Erasmia has previous Eurovision experience, having accompanied Demy for her performance of “This is Love” in Kiev in 2017. Also, Dimitra Vlachou and Fania Grigoriou will be joining Katerine on stage as dancers. This confirms that we can expect some choreography from “Better Love” next month. Although it may just be a classic case of interpretive dancers with a stationary singer, which Eurovision fans are certainly familiar with. The staging director behind the performance is Efi Gousi, who also directed the official music video for the song. Gousi’s team will be working collaboration with Minos-Emi/ Universal and ERT to produce the staging.
