Greece’s attempt at a national final in 2018 was a proper shit show. The broadcaster shortlisted five songs, two were disqualified for not meeting the requirements set out by broadcaster ERT and two more refused to pay the selection fee required as part of the terms set out by the broadcaster.

It would appear that ERT have learned their lesson from 2018 and in 2019 they will return to an internal, untelevised selection process.
