GREECE 2014: TV RATES, ODDS & OFFICIAL RESULTS
ATHENS, GREECE – Today Greek national broadcaster announced the official results of the national final. We also have the first impressions from the booking odds and of course the TV rating of the show.
Regarding the results: Freaky Fortune won both tele voting and jury votes while Kostas Martakis ranked 2nd. Crystallia ranked 3rd and Josephine ranked 4th as expected after the dreadful vocal performance.
RESULTS (TOTAL – JURY & TELEVOTING)
36,83% (14,51% + 22,33%) for Freaky Fortune feat. Risky Kidd
28,09% (13,89% + 14,20%) for Kostas Martakis
22,07% (12,35% + 09,72%) for Crystallia
12,01% (09,26% + 03,75%) for Mark Angelo feat. Josephine
Regarding the betting odds, before the national final the estimations for Greece were about the 10th place in the final. After the results last night average odds bring Greece in the 17th position something though we expect it will change.
Regarding the TV ratings, unfortunately the general average of the show was lower than last year. In 2013 the Greek national final which has more spectacular guests and atmosphere got 22% while this year got only 18,2% as AGB Nielsen Greece reported today.
The general sentiment amongst Greek media was that the show last night was average but descent show although the expectations were higher. Not to forget though MAD TV has only 10 days to host the show this year based pun the official agreement with NERIT. Some also claim that a 40th anniversary show without 1974 Greek representative, Marinella also caused a flaw in the show.
