Due to the withdrawal of one of the junior competitiors in Greece, broadcaster ERT has been forced to reissue the list of ten finalists for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest selection this October.

Vergina Evangelou was originally in the line-up, but has withdrawn, citing "personal reasons" as the cause. Young singer Maria Rigopoulou steps forward in her stead as the first runner-up, singing a new song Kosmos oneirikos (Dream world).

The selection will still take place as previously stated on October 7th, at the ET1 Studios.
