Με την μπαλάντα «The Time Ιs Now» διεκδικεί η Βαλάντω Τρύφωνος το εισιτήριο για την Eurovision του Ντίσελντορφ!

Το τραγούδι, σε στίχους και μουσική Ramström, Magnusson και Vuorinen, παρουσιάστηκε επίσημα μαζί με τα υπόλοιπα πέντε σε ειδική εκπομπή της κρατικής τηλεόρασης.

Ο εθνικός μας τελικός αναμένεται να γίνει στις 2 Μαρτίου και το τραγούδι που θα μας εκπροσωπήσει στο Ντίσελντορφ θα επιλεγεί από κοινό και κριτική επιτροπή σε ποσοστό 50 - 50.

Η Ελλάδα διαγωνίζεται στον α’ ημιτελικό της Eurovision, στις 10 Μαΐου, ενώ ο τελικός του διαγωνισμού θα γίνει στις 14 του ίδιου μήνα.

Στίχοι

I'm waiting in the darkness now
Been waiting far too long
But finally I know that I won't fall

And now I see the lights come up
I watch the curtain rise, and I
Am standing tall

And I know my world has changed forever

Now you see the real me
I'm right where I belong
Now you see the one I really am
I'm finally home
Now I know you feel me
And hear me in my song
I had it in me
And the time is now for me to be free

I always kept the dream alive
I didn't let them break me
Always knew the truth inside of me

All the spotlights shining bright
I'll take the stage tonight, I know
This is me

And I know my world has changed forever

Now you see the real me
I'm right where I belong
Now you see the one I really am
I'm finally home
Now I know you feel me
And hear me in my song
I had it in me
And the time is now for me to be free
The time is now

All the times I tried to hide away
All the times I thought the sky was grey
So grey
All the years of searching for the key
Looking for the one when it was me
I had it in me

Now you see the real me
I'm right where I belong
Now you see the one I really am
I'm finally home
Now I know you feel me
And hear me in my song
I had it in me
The time is now
Now you see the real me
I'm right where I belong
Now you see the one I really am
I'm finally home
Now I know you feel me
And hear me in my song
I had it in me

And the time is now for me to be free
And the time is now for me to be free
The time is now
