Greek final coming up for Eurovision Song Contest 2012!

In Greece we get just a few songs to choose between for the big event Eurovisin Song Contest, this year hosted in Baku, Azerbaijan.

We get to vote between 2-4 songs normally, sometimes performed by the same artist!

Yes, believe it or not, we will take part even this year...! "When there's hope there's life" - here in Greece we don't throw in the towel that easy!

The Greek final will be held on March, 12.

We've got 4 songs to choose between:
A rather new group with two young artists; George Alex and May Sokolai. Can't find out who wrote the music and the lyrics -  maybe they wrote the music themselves?  Lyrics "No Parking"

  • CASSIOPEIA performing "Killer Bee"
Newly created girl's group (for the Eurovision Song Contest?) are singing a song with music written by Christos Dantis who among many others has written the winning song of 2005, "My Number One" (performed by great Elena Paparizou), together with Natalia Germanou.

The lyrics of "Killing Bee" is written by Leonidas Chantzaras.

Became known through the reality show "X-factor" 2009. (Here you can see/listen her at an audition for the program: Eleftheria Eleftheriou audition X-factor, 2009.)

Eleftheria was voted off already in the 5th live episode, but was immediately offered to perform in a nightclub by the host of the program, the Greek superstar Sakis Rouvas (3rd with "Shake it" in the Eurovision 2004 and 7th with the song "This is our night" 2009, but these are just trifles in his  huge career...).  An offer which Eleftheria accepted.

Music and lyrics written by Dimitris Stassos, Mikaela Stenström and Dajana Lööf.

Lyrics of "Baby I'm Yours" written by Elias Pantazopoulos. Music: Hush Hush.
