    This is Love is at first the most distinctive one. It’s mixed tempo, something so far only Poland has, and it’s even more evident here. It kind of reminds me of Ireland 2013. It’s not that similar, but I get the similar vibe.

    lol @ Greece. Very weak selection.

    Sorry, it blocked me from posting link twice, I don’t know why.

    Hovig was great in live! If I didn’t see him, I’d thought it was the studio version.

    I enjoyed This is Love 🙂 I feel this would be much better live. The other 2 are fine. I won’t lie, I’ll be disappointed if it’s not This is Love though.

    @Hsinaps no, its not just you! Those songs were all nothing special imo.

    It’s just me or all 3 song are terribly dull? They have no strength, I also feel like they were 100% autotune, like if she didn’t have voice enough to give them life.

    @Colin: That’s what I thought too when I watched the video: she’s gorgeous!

    I don’t understand much Greek, so if anyone here could help me find the live stream, I’d appreciate it very much. I tried going to the live stream link from the eurovision calendar, but I don’t see what I’m looking for.

    I just hope that this 3 songs competition doesn’t last for 3 hours. Anything above an hour is wasting time for this concept.

    Ps. Demi is SO gorgeous, ain’t she? Gonna challenge Poland, UK and Switzerland for top model.

    It doesn’t sound like Cascada at all.
    Its a well produced pop song with a catchy melody. Definitely top 3 if it is chosen from Greece.

    I hope it will be a pop-song, but without the eternal ethnical Greek flavour. Not that I don’t like Greek music, but we heard the ethnic additions too often in the 10 years of this century. I like either a totally ethnic authentic song or a popsong that lacks ethnic additions. I’m looking forward to the song presentation.

    I didn’t like the leaked song, so I hope it has been fixed and the two remaining are better. It seems Greece has the chance to come back to the top 10, at least I hope it is deserved…

    This has to be one of the weirdest national selections ever.

    NO live performances of the candidate songs, just a music video of each, and no time for people to listen to them for a few days.

    They should have just done an internal selection of the song.

    @ VladV

    Actually every time in the past five years the greek public voted, they always chose the best that was offered. If it was any good, like in 2011 and 2013, it did great in the contest. When we didn’t have much to choose from (like in 2014/2015) the results were mediocre. Last year we didn’t even get to choose. I hope we don’t pick something that sounds like Cascada this year…

    looking forward to seeing my beloved Sergey again
    @ct_greece judging from the last 5 years Greeks don’t have such a good taste in choosing ESC songs so make us the favor and vote for this is love

    I hope they didn’t destroy the song.From the demo it sounded like a top 5 material to me.

    Please Greece pick “This is love” and save the year. From the demo the song sounded AWESOME!
    Great melody, well produced, catchy, uptempo. This is top 3 material.

    I’ll borrow a title from last year: “I’ve been waiting for this night”!
    Finally we get to choose our entry!!
    Fingers crossed we listen to some really good stuff tonight and make the best choice!
    I am totally excited! I can’t wait!
    Good luck to Demy! She’s great!

    No matter how much you revamp this, I don’t see it turning into anything special. And I don’t believe it will be that different anyway. In the video she is clearly seen singing those lyrics. Did they go back to Odessa to film a new one with new lyrics? I don’t think so. I really hope there’s something good in the other two, otherwise I am afraid Greece is screwed. By the way, if you intend to board the bandwagon of the diversity party anthem like Bulgaria last year or Serbia the year before, you’d better have a good banger and some good lyrics people can sing along to.

    By the way, the leaked video is still up on Vimeo all those days. I can still watch it.

    Greece has been a Eurovision powerhouse for the last 10 years, and they didn’t qualify last year… Remember what happened last time a Eurovision powerhouse, Sweden, missed the final? That was in 2010, and since then they’ve placed 3rd, 1st, (14th), 3rd, 1st and 5th… If the Greeks fight back like the Swedes do, I think we have a winner! 🙂

    If the leak of the supposed best song is anything to go by then tonight’s selection will be very disappointing

    @Eliran,they have put an instrumental snippet of the song on the ESC YouTube channel

    Didn’t listen to the leak — pleased how respectful ESC fans are generally.

    Come on Demy! High hopes !! 🙂
