Earlier than ever we have our first look on Greece’s way of finding it’s next superstar to represent the country in the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest. ERT made public yesterday an official press release on how things will be handled from now on for this year’s edition.
The statement can be found below as such:
“Within the context of ERT’s participation in the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, which will take place in May 2023 in the United Kingdom, the Hellenic Radio Television invites companies active in the production or distribution of sound recordings from today (26/08) to submit proposals for the participation of our country, with a final deadline of Sunday, October 9, 2022”.
What’s more, every proposal to the Greek Broadcaster has to be a thorough one from start to finish. This means that any submissions handed in must be in its final form, an approach that Dutch broadcadter AVROTROS is also enforcing this year. Any interested artists are allowed to submit up to three submissions for consideration.
Greece’s Recent Entries
We can only say one thing about Greece’s entries the last 10 years, and that is, variety. We’ve seen all kind of genres from pop, ethnic, alternative, and indie together with all kinds of stagings, with the most recent being Amanda Tenfjord and “Die Together”. Amanda came 8th this past May and received 215 points.
Only time will tell what kind of package ERT will select for the 2023 contest.
