DT, in accordance with MAD TV, are gearing up for the Greek national final Eurosong 2014 – a MAD show. At the end of all this madness Greece will choose its representative for the B&W Hallerne. Four acts will compete, while several past representatives will reprise their entries along with some new-age singers. They’re all being advertised as the “Special 40 Year Celebratory Acts”. The show will once again be hosted by Despina Vandi and George Kapoutzides, who will appear wearing kilts, just like Koza Mostra did last year. Fokas Evaggelinos will serve as director.

THE INTERVAL ACTS

Pascalis, Robert Williams and Marianna Toli will remind us of the year 1977, when they represented the country with the song “Mathema Solfege”. The group (which actually seemed simillar to ABBA at the time) will present one of the  most beloved Greek entries (remixed) which came 5th with 92 points, this time along with the boy-band Melisses, who last year made a duet with Marija Serifovic and sang “Molitva”.

Some years later, Elpida, one of the most successful Greek singers, represented her homeland with the song “Socrates”. It finished 8th with 69 points, and is still a popular Eurovision entry here in Greece. This year, she will sing her entry with Tamta, a female Greek singer.

Back in the year 1991, Sofia Vossou sang “I Anixi”, another entry which became a hit. She finished 13th with just 36 points. However, she won’t be alone on stage, as Demy, a rising star of new-age Greek pop music, will sing with her. Lat year she made one of the best duets with Dima Bilan.

Kaiti Garbi represented Greece in 1993 with her song “Ellada, Hora Tou Fotos” (“Greece, Country of Light”) and finished 9th with 64 points. With the media wondering whether she was wearing underwear or not, she received a lot of attention, and this year she will remix her entry with the group Vegas, which last year sang along with Helena Paparizou.

Last but not least, one of the best songs Greece has presented in the recent years at the Eurovision Song Contest, will be presented live on Acro Music Hall’s stage. Yes, Kalomira with her “Secret Combination” will travel from the USA to attend the event and sing with Claydee, a young singer who will bring summer in the arena!

Of course, Koza Mostra and Agathon Iakovides will sing their entry, which finished 6th last year.

TICKETS

Acro Music Hall will be the venue for the show, starting at 20.00 CET. Tickets’ prices are at about 10 euro, and you can purchase them here.
