The Greek Public Broadcaster ERT, announced that the Greek entry for Eurovision 2023 will be selected by a combined vote of a demoscopic jury counting for 50,6% and a professional jury counting for 49,4%, a voting pattern similar to the new system which was announced a few months ago by EBU, to be used at the Grand Final of Eurovision 2023.
After a public invite for interested audience members to be part of the jury, almost 3000 people submitted an application. 70 people were selected after an online draw and the demoscopic jury will vote today, Wednesday 28th of December. Participants are split based on their age groups as follows:
- 18 – 25 years old: 25 jury members
- 26-35 years old: 20 jury members
- 36-45 years old: 15 jury members
- 46 years old or older: 10 jury members
The demoscopic jury will give their scores for the 7 shortlisted songs chosen by the professional jury, at the headquarters of ERT in Athens.
What comes next?
Once the demoscopic jury vote is done, meetings will be held with the artists that are part of the shortlist. The management team of ERT and the professional jury will meet with their artists and their teams, allowing them to present their plans and vision for their song, in case they are selected to represent Greece at Eurovision 2023. Then, the professional jury will meet and give their scores for the entries. Scores will be combined based on the before mentioned percentages, and the entry for Greece in Eurovision 2023 will be determined.
The Greek representative and title of its entry will be announced until mid January.
