Tamta: in-between Georgia and Greece for Eurovision
ATHENS, GREECE – The rumours about Tamta’s bidding to the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest started to rise on the internet and we searched about it. It is no secret that for two years now Tamta seeks a way to the Eurovision Song Contest, something we noticed when we saw her in the audience of 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen supporting Freaky Fortune and Risky Kidd.
Since September when ERT confirmed participation for Stockholm, Tamta declared her interest to represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest. In the meantime Tamta had discussions with her native country, Georgia to represent the country in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest something which failed as Georgian national broadcaster recently announced Nika & The Lolitaz as their representatives.
With ERT’s President Mr Dionysis Tsaknis personally taking over the project and searches on his own the artist who will represent Greece (yes, it’s almost sure that there will be internal selection) it seems that the idea of Tamta is back on the table although Mr Tsaknis seeks more of a “quality status” singer such as Melina Aslanidou or probably a pop rock alternative band.
It is too soon to even make speculations as ERT will seriously deal with the national / internal selection after holidays something we expect after January 5th. We made this post to clear things as many websites make already announcements and name predictions which are anyway unfindable.
DID YOU KNOW?
In the 2015 Greek national final, Tamta was suppose to participate with the song “Unloved” a massive hit in Greece and Israel but she withdraw her entry one day before the announcement of the national final participants forcing Minos EMI to submit Maria Elena Kyriakou to replace her.
