In these meetings each artist will give more information about his/her song, the plans of the stage appearance, the promotion intends to do, etc. The final selection by the ERT’s jury will take into account all the above.

Surprisingly, in the final five, there aren’t names that for many were considered as favorites, proving that the only criterion of ERT is the proposals of the artists and their prospects in the difficult track of Eurovision.
