Elina Konstantopoulou Ελίνα Κωνσταντοπούλου

Once upon a time, Greece was not the high-scoring, surefire-qualifying Eurovision force that they turned into after the turn of the century. In fact, they used to fare quite badly and very rarely broke in to the top 5. However, they could always be trusted to spice up the contest with that unique Greek ethnic flavour. And few other entries were as ethnically tasty as their entry in 1995, "Pia prosefhi" with the internally chosen Elina Konstantopoulou. Let's have a talk with Elina to hear about her participation in 1995, what makes a song sound so genuinely Greek, why she didn't get along with her duet partner when she tried to return to the contest in 2002, some other songs of her's and why she stopped being an artist.
