HELENA PAPARIZOU REJECTED UNOFFICIAL PROPOSAL
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
There is a while since the news are rumored in Greece but now we can securely publish them. Helena Paparizou was unofficially sounded for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. The unofficial approach was made for two reasons: first because it would have been a great idea for Greece to show that Helena Paparizou is honoring Greece and Sweden (her second homeland) by performing in Malmoe next May.
It would also be a symbolic representative as Helena participated during the “golden age” of Eurovision in Greece and now that the country is severely suffering, would stimulate the spirit of entire country (and we all know that). The answer was “no”. We are not sure for the reason but the blogs claim that the reason was the already scheduled tour of Helena in the USA next spring…
