Greece 2018: submissions deadline extended one week
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
GREECE – One week extension to the deadline for submitting their bids, got the record labels from the Greek national broadcaster as exclusively we present you today. In the run for the national selection, Ellinikos Telikos 2018, we have so far five confirmed names.
Areti Ketime, Vassiliki Stefanou, Panagiotis Tsakalakos, Stereo Soul & DJ Koncept and Christina Salti. There seems to be two more names interested to submit their names with one of them rumoured to be Yorgos Papadopoulos, a popular Greek Cypriot singer.
Two more bids announced by Vinyl Records: Yannis Moraitis and Dimitris Kiklis will also bid for the Greek selection under two songs by Andreas Lambrou
The deadline is now extended one week in order for ERT to allow the record labels to finalise their decisions. It is widely spread that Panik Records is not submitting one but two artists to ERT. After all it was never said that a record label has to submit one artist. It is also notable that Stereo Soul are back in the game despite their initial disappointment by the ERT rules with a Greek modern ballad.
