Greek Eurovision fans extended their radio antennas this morning when ERT, the national broadcaster, revealed snippets of this year’s Eurovision entries on Radio Deftero 103, 7. The broadcaster will reveal the songs in full on February 15. Wiwi’s friends at the Athens-based oikotimes.com speculated that officials worried the songs would leak, leading to all sorts of trouble (as with Jedward’s Facebook leak in Ireland). The running order (below) was also released. Have a listen to the entries and then cast your vote in Wiwi’s poll below. Start voting, Europe!
