31 January – Sometimes I’m acting like a lady

It’s an old adage that when you’re on that hallowed Eurovision stage, you really need something to push home the fact that you could be worthy of winning on that Saturday night – assuming you make it through a cut-throat semi-final.

Our friends from Greece, know how to put on an interesting stage show. I personally can’t see what’s wrong with a giant penguin. But they’ve had big books on stage that can open, or men in skirts kilts. Or big staplers. Or chairs scattered on stage with gay abandon. Today’s birthday girl Μαρία Καλομοίρα Σαράντη/Maria Kalomira Sarantis liked her big book.

Kalomira is 38 today.

Χρόνια πολλά, Καλομοίρη!
