The Greek broadcaster ERT, according to Eurovision Fun, will most likely select a song for the Dutch-Greek singer Stefania Liberakakis, or usually known as Stefania. There are several reasons for this decision. First of all, Greece have chosen their Eurovision song internally for four years in a row now. In addition to that, considering the ongoing pandemic, it is difficult to produce a live show at the moment. Also, considering that Stefania is living in the Netherlands, the current travel constrictions and lockdowns in many European countries is an obstacle for such a journey.
Five songs are in the running for 2021. Stefania as well as her team already have a clear favourite though so it can be expected that the Greek entry has more or less been selected already. Nevertheless, a release of Stefania’s new entry cannot be expected until the new year.
In 2020, Stefania was chosen by the Greek national broadcaster ERT to represent Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with the pop song Superg!rl. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this unfortunately didn’t happen. Like many other countries, Greece have chosen the same act for the next contest.
Since making its debut in the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest, Greece has participated 40 times, missing only 6 contests. After getting 3rd place in 2001 and 2004, Greece’s first victory came in 2005 when Helena Paparizou sang My Number One. Helena Brought the contest to Athens in 2006. In 2008 Kalomira got 3rd place in the final with her song Secret Combination. Some of Greece’s most memorable entries include (I Would) Die For You (2001), Alcohol is Free (2013) and Better Love (2019). Greece didn’t qualify two times so far: 2016 with the song Utopian Land and 2018 with the song Oneiro Mou.
