GREECE – Two interesting hints were spread last night in two different events. During the X-Factor Greece, the former national final participant for Cyprus, Panagiotis Koufogiannis was praised for his performance with all the jury hinting that he is ready for Eurovision. Why did they say that? Do they know Panagiotis’ wish to go to Eurovision? Is there already a scouting process for him?
Then we had the joint concert of Helena Paparizou and Despoina Vandi. You should all remember Destine Vandi from hosting the 2013 and 2014 Greek national finals aside to George Kapoutzides. During their live concert Despoina said that “…and we are thinking of sending you to Eurovision” in a way that shows that there was a serious talk between the two women and there is something going on.
It is weird why all those mentions take place especially now that Cyprus and Greece have poor results in the recent Eurovision Song Contest editions a fact that when occurred usually prevented big artists to even discuss participation in the event. For sure, something is going on with Eurovision, but there will be no official approach on the matter since ERT is still seeking for a new CEO.
