One week ago people were convinced that Greece would not take part in the 59th Eurovision Song Contest. However, the landscape continues to shift and now DT/NERIT seems sure of their participation.
DT APPLIES TO BECOME A EBU MEMBER
According to Bloomberg Greece, the interim television network in Greece will apply to become part of the EBU in a few days. Participation was discussed in a meeting that included the CEO of NERIT as well as the special administrator of the now defunct ERT. The people who attented the meeting agreed that DT can take over Eurovision as long as it collects the required sum of money, which will be lower than 350,000 euros for the period it broadcasts, until NERIT replaces it.
WHO WILL REPRESENT GREECE?
Every year, we all wonder aloud who will represent Greece at ESC. This year the talented pop singer Demy is one of the most popular possible representatives. Even Greek Eurovision legend Helena Paparizou supports her. Moreover, Kostas Martakis and the sexy pop singer Eleni Foureira have said they are interested in representing Greece.
