ATHENS, GREECE – The presentation of the Greek entry took place today during the ERT news show “Studio 3” while there was a press conference at Studio E for the limited press and media representatives.
In the studio after the broadcast of the video clip the guests didn’t know how to express themselves. George Katsaros, the legendary composer and Greek conductor in Eurovision 1974, co author of the first entry simply said “it’s something different” while the OGAE Greece President said “I cannot comment […] my position is to always support the Greek entrants”. Newsit.gr journalist in the panel said “it’s a risk…”. Even the correspondent at the Studio E, joked about it and said “Oh I am on air… the song is fantastic”!
In the meantime newsit.gr which is clearly one for the “friendly” media to ERT has exclusively aired on YouTube the official Greek entry clip while ERT, EBU or the band itself haven’t uploaded yet the video in their YouTube accounts! So that’s why there were praying reports about ERT all the time by them.
ERT presentation for Eurovision of course was based on MAD TV tribute videos made for last year’s national selection in which ERT had to blur the logo of MAD TV! The first comments on the web are disappointment. Greece is currently 27th in the betting odds!
