ATHENS, GREECE – The Greek media are desperate to create news and therefore they post information about Greece and Maria Elena Kyriakou that are simply false.
The first story few weeks ago was that the Greek delegation didn’t have a stage director for the performance of Maria Elena which was proven wrong as Maria Lyraraki (known choreographer in Eurovision world ie. Greece 2004 and more) is responsible for the stage presentation of Greece.
The second story emerged today is that Greece got a fine by EBU of 10,000 Euros for changing the lyrics of the songs from English to Greek. The story immediately denied by the officials to oikotimes.com
In the meantime Maria Elena and the Greek delegation attended a special lunch event with the Austrian ambassador yesterday in Athens.
