Athens, Greece -

Tonight, in Athens the show Ellinikós Telikós 2011 has been held to determine who would represent Greece in Europe's Favourite TV Show in Düsseldorf. Loucas Yiorkas featuring Stereo Mike beat off the challenge of five other acts, and will represent Greece with the song Watch My Dance.

The Greek national selection was hosted by Lena Aroni from broadcaster ERT's studio in the Katehaki area of Athens.

Lena introduced the jury members at the start of the show, all of whom have vast experience within the Greek music industry, their votes would form 50% of the overall decision, along with the other half being decided by the Greek televoting public. The juries were the only persons present in the TV studio as the fans were watching from another location.

All of this years participants made their names in either the Greek Idol or X Factor shows, and are all very experienced and competent with performing live.

The line up for tonight's show was as follows:

Kokkina Halia - Come With Me
Valando Trifonos - The Time Is Now
Triimitonio - Hamogela
Antigoni Psyhrami - It’s All Greek To Me!
Loucas Yiorkas feat. Stereo Mike - Watch My Dance

    I will vote for Greece. This song is quite original and sounds really good, it has a beautiful message and Loukas is the best singer in this year's ESC. I think songs like Nikki Ponte are nice and funny, if you want, but they don't really say anything. I'd much rather listen to something fresh and new like Greece's entry. report to the moderator

    nikki ponte would be surely a good finalst and a hot favourite to win the contest..but now we have loukas and stereo mike, well..that is a less catchy entry, a more difficult song, but i still think it is an interesting entry and i suppose the dramatic greek singing with the bouzouki and the zebekiko music might bring some points especially from the eastern and balkan countries..i am myself not so sure how this entry will be received in the esc...all in all, it is not bad and i wish my country all the luck!! report to the moderator

    I like the song especially when Loucas is singing! I think the rapping part makes the song less beautiful because of the Stereo Mike's English. Anyway, good luck, neighbours! I'll vote for you! :):):) report to the moderator
