Helena Paparizou - Survivor : 9 points
A great choice to start the voting off, Helena hasn't lost any of her stage presence or charisma from 2005! She is still gorgeous, works the crowd and the camera brilliantly and has superb vocals as always. Good use of pyrotechnics - it's just a pity that the crowd was fairly quiet compared to a typical Eurovision crowd. My only reason for not awarding the perfect score - not so sure now on a second viewing but being super picky the song started a little too quietly for me. Even so, this demonstrates how tough the Melodifestivalen process is that Helena was only a distant fourth behind the eventual winner, Sanna Nielsen. If she had been singing for anyone other than Sweden, The Netherlands or Austria I would have predicted a definite ESC Final place and a probable top 5. Even though I agree with the Swedish nation that Sanna was the right choice, Helena can sing for the UK anytime! I digress, a superb first song, how would the rest compare?
