"Never Let You Go" was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, performed by Mando entirely in English, the first time the Greek entry had not had any lyrics in Greek. The song topped the Greek charts and was certified gold in Greece.[1] The lyrics are by Terry Siganos, the music is written by Mando herself and it was produced by Johnny Jam.

The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following Ukraine's Olexandr Ponomariov with "Hasta La Vista" and preceding Norway's Jostein Hasselgård with "I'm Not Afraid To Move On"). At the close of voting, it had received 25 points and was placed 17th in a field of 26.

The song is a dramatic ballad, with the singer telling her lover all the things she would do for him, but emphasising that she would "never let you go".

For her Eurovision appearance, Mando wore an unusual navy blue gown, with a very tight lace-up bodice.

It was succeeded as Greek representative at the 2004 Contest by Sakis Rouvas with "Shake It".
