Greece: Katerine Avgoustakis' song leaked?

Today, the Greek broadcaster announced the song titles and running order of the nine songs to compete in the Greek final on the 12th March. As Katerine Avgoustakis' song title was made known it was discovered that a remix of a song by the same title has been online since November 5th.

One of the rules set by the Greek broadcaster this year is that no part of the songs may be made available before March 5th when the songs will be presented officially during a televised show. All interested parties have been notified in writing. If the song online is indeed a remix of the actual candidate song then it is highly possible that Katerine's song will be disqualified.

The exact same thing happened recently in Cyprus, when the song by Deep Zone was found to have been posted in various sharing sites around the internet and was thus excluded from the Cypriot final. The issue will be discussed tomorrow at ERT headquarters so stay tuned for further updates.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
