Unfazed by Eurovision Outcome, Victor Vernicos Triumphs with Resilience

LONDON – Despite being eliminated in the semi-finals and not progressing to the grand competition at the 67th Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool, Victor Vernicos, the 16-year-old Greek-Danish performer, remains undeterred.

Victor wrote and performed the song “What They Say,” which, although it didn’t secure him a spot in the internationally televised final, he expressed satisfaction with his Eurovision experience and didn’t let any negative comments affect him.

Speaking to reporters upon his return to Athens at the airport, Victor said, “The Eurovision experience was perfect. I learned many things and met many artists. As for negative comments, I haven’t read anything. I don’t know the people who write them,” as shown in footage aired on Mega TV.

He further shared, “I gave it my all on stage. I was a little nervous at first, but then I felt fine. I put my heart into it, but it wasn’t my moment. I wouldn’t change a thing. As for whether I would go to Eurovision again, I’ll never say never.”

Victor Vernicos displayed resilience and a positive attitude, embracing the lessons learned and cherishing the connections made during his Eurovision journey.
