Greeks May Get to Tele-Vote for 2024 Eurovision Song Entry

February 27, 2023

While Greece has already selected the singer who will represent the country at the 2023 Eurovision song contest through an internal selection process, the process may be returned to a TV audience in 2024, making it more transparent. The state-run broadcaster and a panel of people decided the representative this year, but a national televised final could return for the first time since 2015, according to ECSBubble citing Enikos.

The goal is to involve a wider Greek audience through televoting, with a multi-show national final as a possibility. Currently, five or six shows are being considered, but nothing has been set yet. The last time the Greek audience chose a representative was in 2015 with Maria Elena Kyriakou’s One Last Breath. The last multi-show national final was in 2004, and Greece is once again looking for a winner for Eurovision.
