NATIONAL FINAL DATE NOW CONFIRMED
The problem with the original date now seems to have resolved. The Greek national final couldn’t take place on February 19 and 21 as some claimed because on the 19th is the premiere of the Lakis Lazopoulos show on Alpha TV and on the 21st the game of Olympiakos on ANT1 TV. The date of February 20th was also impossible due to Champions League game with Barcelona and February 22nd was already too far away. Therefore we can confirm Greek national final is set now for February 18th.

INTERNATIONAL GUESTS IN THE FINAL
Yes, it’s true the Greek National Final will be a huge event bringing back the glory of Greek shows we knew in te period 2005 – 2009 and MAD TV is responsible for that: Helena Paparizou with Melisses, Dima Bilan with Demy, Alexander Rybak with Kostas Martakis, Ruslana with Eleni Foureira, Marija Serifovic with VEGAS group, plus the 2013 Cyprus representative are the first confirmed guest stars for the Greek National Final. You cannot call them as interval act as their appearance on stage will be simply a surprise nothing ever happened before in a European national selection show. More names to be revealed in due course time.

HOST & VENUE
Although various names are tipped and rumored throughout the past few weeks nothing is yet confirmed because ERT and MAD TV are still in negotiations. One thing is for sure: it will be huge! Remember that songs will be presented in a special press conference on February 4th as oikotimes.com previously reported. The general artistic director is Fokas Evaggelinos the man behind various Eurovision entries in the recent past.
