GREECE – Two polls closed today on oikotimes.com. In the first poll we asked the fans which of the two (Demy and Stereo Soul) you want to represent Greece. In the second we asked which of the ten already chosen Eurostars is your favourite so far. Demy is the fans favourite choice for Greece 2017 and Lindita Halimi from Albania is the Eurofans favourite choice so far. Will that make a change in the bets?
