GREECE – It is reported that ERT’s artistic jury met again to discuss possible problems with songs which didn’t meet the criteria originally set by the Greek national broadcaster. There seems to be two songs that didn’t meet the criteria of Greek sound as requested therefore the broadcaster decides now that three songs will only proceed to the national final.
ERT decided to disqualify Duo Fina, which is actually a duet which works at ERT and raised a lot of questions with their qualification to the final. But due to the fact that their song didn’t meet the ERT music criteria, the duet is disqualified. It seems that ERT doesn’t want another scandal. Also the song of Tony Vlachos is disqualified for the same reasons. Therefore the three finalists are:
GREECE 2018 🇬🇷 ELLINIKOS TELIKOS
|PARTICIPANT||SONG TITLE||PUBLIC VOTING||RANKING|
|Yianna Terzi||Oneiro Mou||Internally Selected|
|Group Horostalites||From Thrace to Crete||Disqualified|
|Areti Ketime||Don't Forget The Sun||Disqualified|
|Tony Vlachos||Baila Jazz||Disqualified|
|Duo Fina||Idio Tempo||Disqualified|
Greek national broadcaster has given the three bidders time to finalise their demos and present their official production to ERT and by December 5th we will know the details for the national final including the date and venue.
