Michalis Rakintzis gave a press conference after the first rehearsal.
They were asked what's the intension and tactics of the song and mr. Rakintzis sayed that it's just an inspiration. One thing he repeated was the meaning of SAGAPO, which mean I Love You in Greek. The members of the group are all good friends and they have been playing together for several years.
The song is a big hit in Greece. It has been played in every tv-station and it has been a major success. The interest has been grown very large.
At the same time the head of delegation said that in case they win they are ready to host the contest next year. They love the contest even more and more.
The stress in questions have been put to clothing of the singers. They said that they designed the clothes by themselves. At least they showed the designer what they wanted and he made the clothes.
A BBC reporter stated directly: The costumes are kinky. Is there a special audience for greece song? The singer just said quickly that it has nothing to do with it. They were also asked to sing, but he refused and simply mentioned that he will sing on stage.
