ESC 2012, semi-final 1 - Greece

Eleftheria Eleftheriou (born 12 May 1989) is a Greek-Cypriot singer who came to prominence in Greece and Cyprus after her participation in the second season of Greece's version of the singing competition The X Factor. Her early elimination from the show was considered a shock to many. Shortly after her elimination, Sony Music Greece signed Eleftheria and submitted her as a candidate to represent Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 with the song Tables Are Turning. Later, she was disqualified from the national final, following the leak of her song onto the internet.

Eleftheria had previously participated in the Cypriot national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 with the song Play That Melody To Me, finishing seventh in the final. Eleftheria will represent Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, with the song Aphrodisiac which won the Greek pre-selection for the ESC in Baku.
