Greece: Videos of songs online
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.

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.
