Greece deviated from their usual selection process in 2016. Instead of staging the MAD show which chooses the Greek Eurovision entry, instead they internally selected the band Argo to represent them with ‘Utopian Land’. The gamble didn’t pay off, as Greece blemished their perfect Eurovision record, failing to qualify for the final for the first time ever since the semi finals were introduced in 2004.
Greece’s 2016 Eurovision representatives failed to impress at Eurovision, giving Greece their worst ever result. Nonetheless, Argo (formerly Europond) are back with a follow up song to their Eurovision entry ‘Utopian Land’.
