EXCLUSIVE: THE GREEK 2013 NF FORMAT
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
Based on secure sources, MAD TV will organize for ERT a national final under a very specific recipe. The viewers, the opinion of which is needed this year more than ever, will have the chance to decide upon three styles of music. Therefore each participant will sing either one of them.
The music styles will most likely be: ethnic/ traditional, pop and alternative. All three music styles are popular among Greeks.
Ethnic/ traditional songs top the charts the recent years while artists singing this kind of music are beloved in Greece. A good example of this kind of music is the chorus of the 2011 Greek entry.
Pop music is most loved by the youth and there are a lot of groups and artists performing this kind of music enjoying chart success and receiving a lot of awards.
Finally alternative styles of music always gather huge audience in local concerts, while there are songs of this style that enjoy a cross over success.
This gives the audience a good variety of options of which music sound fits better to represent the country (especially these days) in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Already various names are considered to fit the songs of each style but there is no final decision yet on them. One thing is for sure. With MAD TV on the production the national final of Greece will be the most different NF Show we have ever seen!
