GREECE – With Stefania already selected to represent the country in 2021, it was announced that the same team responsible for the songwriting and the choreography of the 2020 entry would also be used for the 2021 contest and that the song would be selected internally.
On 14 December 2020, ERT revealed the names of the people who comprised the jury panel involved with the selection of the song.
The jury consisted of music composer and ERT board member Dimitris Papadimitriou, and music producers Petros Adam and Yiannis Petridis. All three were members of the previous year’s jury panel. As it was announced, the jury panel planned to select the Greek entry before 2021, while the song would not be released before March 2021.
Songwriters Dimitris Kontopoulos and Sharon Vaughn, and the production team ARCADE (Pavlos Manolis, Anastasios Rammos, Diverno, Gabriel Russell), submitted at least four potential entries to ERT for consideration.
On 18 December 2020, an Instagram post by Stefania on the official account of the Eurovision Song Contest revealed the name of one of the song candidates, “Adrenaline”. Three weeks later on 7 January 2021, “Last Dance”, was announced as the title of the selected song, with its release planned for 10 March.
