We are now entering the final stretch for the selection of the artist and the song that will represent Greece in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest. After the completion of the submission of proposals for the claim of the Greek representation in Eurovision 2022, the competent committee of ERT, which will have the final say, is ready to start work and thoroughly examine all the songs submitted, as well as the other details, from each proposal.
Larger than in previous years, it is expected to be the competent artistic committee of ERT, which will make the final decision for Stefania’s successor in the Eurovision stage. With renowned people of music and led for another year by Dimitris Papadimitriou, the committee will be invited to choose the song and the proposal that will bring the country as high as possible in the Eurovision 2022 standings. The atmosphere at ERT is something more than positive, something that was reflected not only in our articles, but also in the entire electronic and print press, where the increase of interest was commented extensively, after the successful presence in this year’s competition.
According to our information, ERT is oriented to complete the selection in two phases:
- Select a small number of songs (3-4) that will distinguish the committee from the approximately 40 submitted.
- To meet with the artists of these songs, to discuss with them the rest of the details of their proposal.
- To make the final decision taking into account all the above.
In contrast to what happened in previous years, ERT wishes to have reached both the artist and the song before the end of the year. This will give extra time to better prepare, but also to promote its entry. The goal as we wrote in our previous articles is clear, a better placement from this year’s tenth place, something completely possible as the members of the Greek delegation believe.
Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the developments regarding the Greek participation in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest!
