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. This essentially made their choice of Yianna Terzi’s ‘Oniero Mou’ a default internal selection. It would appear that ERT have learned their lesson from 2018 and in 2019 they will return to an internal, untelevised selection process.
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’.
