Athens, Greece -

Videos of the four hopefuls competing in the Greek national selection, Ellinikos Telikos 2012, which will be held on Monday 12th of March have been made available to watch online. At the same time the running order of the four songs has also been determined.

On Wednesday 28th February, Greek broadcaster ERT made the four songs that will compete in Ellinikos Telikos 2012 available on audio online. In an unusual strategy they didn't reveal the names of the artists at the time, in a bid to place an emphasis on the actual songs.

Now, the names of the artists and composers have been made public, as well as videos of the entries, and you can watch them on the Official ERT Eurovision website.

A draw has also been held to decide the running order, which is as follows.

Baby I'm Yours
Performer: Dora
Music: Franc, Elias Pantazopoulos
Lyrics: Nectarios Tyrakis

Killer Bee
Performers: Cassiopeia
Music: Christos Dantis
Lyrics: Leonidas Hatzaras

No Parking
Performers: Velvet Fire
Music & Lyrics: George Samuelson, Leonidas Hatzaras

Aphrosdisiac
Performer: Eleftheria Eleftheriou
Music & Lyrics: Dimitris Stassos, Mikaela Stenström, Dajana Lööf

,

The Greek final will be broadcast on Monday 12th March at 21:00 CET and will be transmitted live by ET1 and ERT World as well as on Eurovision.tv. A combination of televoting (50%) and a jury (50%) will determine who will represent Greece in Europe's Favourite TV Show.

Greece will participate in the First Semi-Final in Baku on the 22nd May.

Greece has the distinction of having qualified from every Semi-Final they have participated in, since the format was introduced in 2004.

    I like the song "Baby I'm yours", but not Dora. Eleftheria should sing this song!!! You gave a good song to the wrong girl. report to the moderator

    My opinion about the Greek songs:

    4. Aphrodisiac: Beautiful girl but the song is no special, it's actually annoying the way she says: Aphro-di-siac. I couldn't listen to this again.

    3. No parking: Dissaster.

    2. Killer Bee: Beautiful girls looking beautiful, song is only ok.

    1. Baby I'm Yours: Of the 4, the little better one, this one actually kinda sounds Greek at least, I just wish she would stop immitating Lena!!! (same hair, same clothes, same moves...it's not fun). We saw Lena twice, we don't wanna see Lena again!!!

    Better luck next year, I love the Greek country but poor quality songs. report to the moderator

    the song Aphrosdisiac makes you dance like a maniac.I see way the others like this song.For me all of the songs are good but the song i like the most is No parking because it sounds more diferent than the other entries from the past years from Greece.

    They do all sound similar apart from Baby I'm Yours. Im Happy For Any of These Songs To Go To Eurovision. I Like The Cheeky Side And Funk Of "No Parking". I Like The "Popyness" Of "Killer Bee" And The Girls Are Good, But They Dont Have The Best Vocals. "Aphrodisiac" Is A Bit Of A Weird Name But I Really Like It And Is Catchy. And Baby Im Yours Is Good Because Dora Has A Beautiful Voice. I Love All Of Them (Could Win!)
