Greece was among 10 countries that qualified for the grand finale of the 57th Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan, following the first semifinal at the city’s Crystal Hall on Wednesday night.

The other countries that qualified for the annual competition's final, which take place on Saturday, May 26, were Cyprus, Romania, Moldova, Iceland, Hungary, Denmark, Albania, Russia and Ireland.

A second semifinal competition was scheduled to take place on Thursday evening with another 18 countries competing for the remaining 10 spots in Saturday’s final.

The Greek entry features Eleftheria Eleftheriou with “Aphrodisiac,” a song written and composed by Dimitri Stassos, Mikaela Stenstrum and Dajana Loof.
