Video / Gallery: Eleni Foureira shines on cruise gig
SANTORINI, GREECE – All you need in life is good friends to have great time plus a touch of Eurovision sparkle to make your summer cruise the ultimate event of your life. This is what happened last week when we decide to attend the Students Cruise project with Eleni Foureira.
After Syros, Santorini, Izmir, Cesme, Bodrum, Ios, Kos the cruise ship held an event which was crowned with success. The passengers of Louis Cristal had the chance to enjoy for 45 minutes the Greek goddess Eleni Foureira. Honstely, if this girl was a power plant, then the entire Europe would have energy for years. Eleni can dance and sing for hours and we have seen that in many occasions, this was one more proof that she is a true artist and star.
With a yellow short dress and her curly pompous hair she made the Muses club on deck 8 to cheer up. But she wasn’t alone with just the audience. Dozens of fans aged 17-22 followed her onboard and joint Eleni on stage leaving their seats and creating the best party atmosphere.
The songs Eleni Foureira weren’t narrowed to her own discography. Besides her own smashing summer hits, she gave outstanding performance of Indila’s “La Dernier Danse” and lots of 80s and 90s hits.
Well we all know she is tipped for Eurovision for years now and in our off the record discussions she admitted she is highly interested into representing Greece when the right time comes and this is why our website decided to have a tribute to her.
Besides the performance, we have the chance to meet and eat with Eleni Foureira and her colleague Irida many times onboard. She is so funny, she could be a comedian fully capable for a stand up comedy show, not to mention lovely incidents that happened on stage: during her performance she was really having hard times dancing due to the high hills and the sea waves while she stopped her program to talk to a child who said that loved her!
She is approachable and patent with selfies when people ask. When you open a discussion with her, you see a very young female person talking very maturely about everything. The result? You simply fall in love with her.
We hope Europe does too very soon!
Alongside the Eleni Foureira event, the last night on the ship ended with a great party with a DJ set by Dimitris Milioglou (yes, the DJ we used on our 10th and 12th Eurovision parties in Athens). It was a blast reminding me how the Eurovision after-parties are made. Who knows, we might also see him in Vienna as well, he is for sure the best person to make a great Eurovision program unlike many other “famous” Eurovision DJs.
