Fresh from their best result at Eurovision since 2013, ERT announced a call for proposals from record labels for their Eurovision 2022 entry earlier this month. With the deadline of October 10 a couple of weeks away, it is being reported that several exciting Greek artists are putting submissions together.
Eurovision Fun have reported that rising Greek-American singer Evangelia is putting a proposal together via Panik Records in the hope of representing Greece at Eurovision 2022. The singer recently confirmed via her Instagram story that she had recently met with Panik Records, the label behind recent Eurovision stars Eleni Foureira and Elena Tsagrinou.
Notably, Evangelia was one of the artists named in our editorial on what we would like to see from Cyprus at Eurovision 2022.
In addition, ERT’s Studio4 talk show claims that Good Job Nicky, Joanne and Konstantinos Christoforos are also among the artists who are submitting proposals in the hope of representing Greece in Italy next year. In a separate report, Amanda Georgiadi, Kalomira and Elias Kozas were also named as candidates. Back in August, Kalomira was reported to be preparing a Eurovision comeback.
With over two weeks to go until the deadline, there are likely to be more candidates to come. In the meantime, here is a list of potential candidates who have been reported so far:
- Amanda Georgiadi
- Elias Kozas (Greece 2013)
- Good Job Nicky
- Kalomira (Greece 2008)
- Konstantinos Christoforos
Greece at Eurovision 2021
Stefania had been selected internally to represent Greece at Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam. She was due to perform “SUPERG!RL” in the first half of semi-final two. However, following the cancellation of Eurovision 2020, ERT released a press statement to express their intentions to continue their cooperation with Stefania. In December, it was confirmed that her entry would be internally selected again.
In March, ERT released “Last Dance”, Stefania’s entry for the 2021 contest. From the offset, it was clear that they were aiming to bring Greece back to the left-hand side of the scoreboard for the first time since 2013. Before rehearsals started, Dutch media teased that Stefania’s staging will include elements never seen before on the Eurovision stage.
Open rehearsals in Rotterdam later revealed that this staging involved ambitiously choreographed use of green screen. Evidently, this worked well for Stefania, who placed 10th in the Grand Final with 170 points, Greece’s highest placing since 2013.
