Last month, Greek broadcaster ERT finally confirmed that Demy would represent the country at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. This followed months of rumours that had suggested several different artists and selection formats. ERT also revealed that Demy’s song would be selected via a national final. It has now been confirmed that this national final will take place on March 6th.
Three music videos will battle it out
It has previously been revealed that Demy will present three potential entries at the national final, all of which involving Dimitris Kontopoulos in the creation of them. The Greek popstar will record music videos for the three songs in Ukraine’s coastal city of Odessa this month. These music videos will then be presented at the national final rather than Demy performing the entries live.
Reports suggest that the three songs consist of an “American style” pop ballad, a “radio friendly” pop-rock mid-tempo song and a ballad which evolves into a dance song. The winning song D will be selected by national televoting (70%) and members of the Greek diaspora (30%).
Less than three weeks to go!
While we eagerly await the national final, watch Demy’s music video for Isovia Mazi below! The song is a Greek-language cover of Poli Genova’s If Love Was A Crime, Bulgaria’s most successful Eurovision entry ever.
