ATHENS, GREECE – The information reaching the web the past few days about Greek participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 are proven to be false.
Several websites referred to Eleni Foureira as the top hinted internally selected artist something that it was actually a joke from the first minute as she was never in discussions with ERT.
Sleepin Pillow, originally suspected by oikotimes.com as the 2016 Greek representatives, already denied the information to us while they are still speculated in several Greek websites. Information also not true.
The latest rumour, concerns the band Ithikon Akmaiotaton who are suppose to represent the country with the Greek-Cypriot singer Salina. The information is definitely a hoax as they are not the chosen ones.
The truth is that the 2016 Greek representative is a band from Thessaloniki, totally unknown to the public (at least commercially) and their song will have a Balkan sound with Greek lyrics.
The band is a personal choice of ERT’s President Mr Dionysis Tsaknis, a man who seems to “internally select” his friends for Eurovision in the expense of the Greek public who pays for the national broadcaster.
