One more broadcaster confirms their participation to the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. As ERT have confirmed to Esctoday, Greece will be there but the method by which the next representative will be selected is still to be decided.

2013 will see Greece’s 34th participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. Since the country debuted in 1974 they have missed 6 contests.

Despite the current financial problems the country faces, the Eurovision Song Contest remains a profitable project for ERT as it achieves extremely high viewing figures and generates income from advertising. All expenses, the same as last year, will be covered by private sponsors.

It has not yet been decided which method ERT will use to select the artist who will represent them in Malmo. According to Mr Johnny Kalimeris, Executive Member of the Board, all options are currently under discussion. It could be via an open final like in previous years, a short list of artists or in an extreme case, internal selection.

Stay tuned to for more news on Greece soon.
