Greece 2016: First name revealed with interesting development
ATHENS, GREECE – It was revealed tonight that ERT proposed to an artist with “quality” status – non commercial as we have used to the past decade. The name of the artist is Mariza Rizou who was offered an internal selection by ERT.
The singer herself revealed the offer and unblocked the embargo of the news saying that she had to reject the offer because speaking with her team didn’t feel ready or able to do it, despite the good intentions of Greek national broadcaster to submit to Stockholm a new style of Greek music.
After all it’s a decision of ERT board of directors the 2016 Eurovision entry to be penned in Greek. This means that the pop band from Thessaloniki (we cannot reveal the name yet) is still in the run for representing the country in Sweden.
