Greece: ERT’s Announcement for Cancellation of Eurovision 2020 | With Stefania in Eurovision 2021

The question that concerns all fans of the contest, and not only, is whether ERT will choose Stefania as its representative for Eurovision 2021 as well. Not long ago, Greek public broadcaster issued a press release announcing the cancellation of this year’s competition. In this announcement,ERT  thanks Stefania and her team for their excellent cooperation and it seems that they are giving an appointment in Rotterdam next year!

“A decision by the European Public Broadcasting Union (EBU) has canceled the Eurovision  Song Contest in Rotterdam because of the coronavirus pandemic. In its letter to EBU members, contest  executive Jon Ola Sand said – inter alia -: “Our dear partners and friends, We are at a disadvantage in announcing the cancellation of this year’s Eurovision in Rotterdam. In the last few weeks we have worked out a number of alternative projects aimed at holding this year’s competition, but the uncertainty created by the spread of COVID-19 in Europe in conjunction with the security measures imposed by both the Dutch authorities and governments of the participating countries led the EBU to the difficult decision not to proceed with Eurovision 2020 as planned. The EBU, NPO, NOS, AVROTROS and the Rotterdam authorities are continuing discussions on the competition in 2021. We understand your frustration at this time, and as we elaborate on the developments resulting from this unprecedented decision, we ask you to your patience until we are younger in the days and weeks ahead. ” ERT has already assessed as very positive the way in which the Greek and European audiences have accepted this year’s selection of the talented Stephania Luberakakis, as well as the cooperation she has had with her. ERT intends to continue this cooperation over time, as the EBU’s final decisions become known”.

SUPERG! RL by Dimitris Kontopoulos, ARCADE and Sharon Vaughn may not have been represented to us at Eurovision 2020, but it was loved by all Greeks bringing it high from the very first moment of its release on all charts. In the difficult days we all live in, let’s hold on to the optimism and power of this song, hoping that soon we will have beautiful moments again.
