Confirming in full the report of Eurovisionfun, that ERT in September will officially start the procedures for the selection of the Greek participation in Eurovision 2022, a while ago the announcement for the selection was posted on the website of the Greek public television. For another year, as we had informed you, the representative of Greece, but also the song that will represent the country in May, will be chosen by internal procedure, through the submission of proposals.

The process is very close to what happened in 2020 with the selection of Stefania and SUPERG! RL, only this time everything is more formal and given through the relevant announcement, the opportunity is given to all artists, creators, record companies wishing to claim Greek representation at Eurovision 2022, to do so.
Despite what was written from time to time, ERT never seriously considered holding a national final in the summer, nor, of course, did it wait for any epidemiological data to decide the selection process to follow. This, of course, is supported by today’s announcements, since ERT is among the first countries to officially announce their full plan for the promotion of their participation in the next contest.
The names that will concern us
Of course, without being the only ones who will send their proposals, already through Eurovisonfun you have been informed about three artists, who have their proposals ready (or almost ready).
They are Good Job Nicky, Kalomira and Amanda Tenfjord and both of whom will submit their candidate songs to ERT in the coming days.
Over time we will have the opportunity to reveal more details about their proposals, we already know several things, as well as the proposals of other artists that will also be submitted to ERT.
With hopes and optimism for a new triumph in Italy
Much earlier than ever, ERT has started its search, starting this year the procedures for the selection of its participation in Eurovision. Guided by last year’s professionalism, but also a very hard-working team, with experience now and efficiency, will travel to Italy to repeat last year’s triumph and achieve something even better.
We told you last year that Greece will return to the top ten and we insisted on it until the end, almost alone. For 2022 let us be even more optimistic.
ERT wants it, ERT believes it, ERT can do it with the right partners, which we will reveal to you over time, it will bring Greece even higher.
Stefania’s tenth place in this year’s contest, after eight whole years of bad results, will continue, since the Greek public television has decided to play hard in the competition, using in 2022 all the weapons available in its quiver.
Stay tuned in Eurovisionfun for all the news regearding the Greek entry in Eurovision 2022!
