Various news media, both from Greece and abroad, reported this morning that singer Demy opted to represent Greece would be the upcoming Eurovision song contest in Kiev. If we are to believe the messages, Fokas Evangelinos will composers and Dimitris Kontopoulos for three songs. There is then a small national final where the audience the song for Kiev may choose. Public broadcaster ERT confirmed the news later in the day.

Journalist Gregory Melas as eersteop Newsit.gr claimed that the bullet was by the Church: Demy sings this year for Greece. OGAE Greece also came with that news. Top choreographer Fokas Evangelinos and successful composer Dimitris Kontopoulos are involved in the Greek participation in the festival in Ukraine. These two have often managed to score on the Eurovision song contest. So was Fokas with it responsible for among other things the successful Eurovision contributions of Ani Lorak (2008), Dima Bilan (2008), Farid Mammadov (2013) and for My Number One by Helena Paparizou. Evangelinos worked for these songs usually together with Dimitris. That last was last year responsible for You Are The Only One, the hit that Sergey Lazarev was third in Stockholm. In Greece they speak all about an absolute ‘ Dream Team ‘.

Shahal Revealed it yourself?

Rumors of a Eurovision participation by the singer swooped in June of last year. The Greek told when itself that there were negotiations between her team and that of ERT. Dimitris Kontopoulos is responsible for most songs that Demy out and scored with songs already several hits in Greece. One of these is The Sun. Fact is that Demy and Dimitris recently sat together in the music studio . The singer revealed that itself by placing a photo on instagram:

In the article of Melas is also yet to read that a small (and budget-friendly) will organize national final with three songsby the above gentlemen. The Greek public may select the entry of their country. In 2009, a similar show organized, then for Sakis Rouvas.

It was waiting for the official response of broadcasting. With this confirmation, there will be an immediate end to the chaotic selection of Greece. First there were plans on the table to deal with Helena Paparizou, then there would be a national qualifying round, but there was not enough money for. A moment was thought to be a final between group Stereo Soul and Demy, but that last got priority now.
