ERT, the Greek national broadcaster, had an open call for interested artist to apply if they would like to represent the country at next years Eurovision in Turin, Italy.
Couple of weeks ago five act were shortlisted and they were:
- Amanda Tenfjord (Amanda Georgiadis)
- Ilias Kozas (2013 representative)
- Good Job Nicky
- Joanna Drigo
- Lou Is
Just moments ago in a popular daily show Studio4 it was revealed Amanda Tenfjord (Amanda Georgiadis) will represent Greece. Amanda lives in Norway, but just like Stefania who announced her during the show, has Greek roots. As it was clued before, Amanda’s song is an emotional ballad.
Amanda’s song will be presented at a later date. To prepare for Turin she will also be working with Ilias Kokotos who collaborates with the famous Eurovision “Dream Team”.
Between 2004 and 2011 Greece ended up in top 10 for eight consecutive times. In 2014 their luck turned with also two nonqualifiers – in 2016 and 2018.
Will Greece get back to their glory days? Stefania did end up 10th this May in Rotterdam with her song “Last Dance” and amazing green screen performance with ghost dancers.
