    I'm Greek and I know that Kalomoira is not correct spelling of her name, because it is pronounced Kalomira. But I use this tag, because I used to tag her like this for very long time now, and I'm not gonna change it. I'll just vote that the correct tag is Kalomira and wait for last.fm to correct it automatically.

    @ASTOKALOSOU: She had a few… « name problems » and she changed from Kalomoira/Kalomira/Καλομοιρα in many albums. I beleve that since most of her songs are named in « Kalomoira », this tag is better… You can see that in the albums section. There are different names.

    This page should be merged with "Kalomira", since "Kalomira" is her official name, and the correct tag!! http://i.imgur.com/oeMP2.jpg
