TV talents to battle for Greek Eurovision ticket
Is a star from a talent show going to fill the shoes of the 2010 Greek representative Giorgos Alkaios?

Pick the next superstar of the Eurovision Song Contest from TV talent shows. This is the recipe that Greek TV hopes will make success. Each of the six acts now announced for the national final was brought to the limelight in a talent show.

Greece is one of the most successful countries in the Eurovision Song Contest in recent years. The country hopes to continue its successful campaign by picking the next star from a selection of artists with a past in the TV talent shows Greek X Factor and Greek Idol.

All of the artists have recent experience from either one of the talent shows. Nikki Ponte is even currently participating in Greek X Factor.

The Greek broadcaster ERT will reveal further details about the national selection later. The final will be held in February with the winner decided by half televotes, half jury votes.

The artists battling in Greece – here's the full line-up:

  • Antigoni Psichrami
  • Valanto Trifonos
  • Nikki Ponte
  • Kokkina Halia
  • Loukas Yorkas
