ERT has told esctoday.com that the rumours appearing on the internet that Tamta has been confirmed as Greece's representative at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest is news to them also! ERT have said that at this stage, no decision has been taken, and when it is confimed, they will be announcing their participant through a press conference in Athens.

Head of the Greek Delegation, Stella Gliana spoke to esctoday.com today and said that she had approached the administrative department to find out the latest news, but that ERT had as yet not decided on any artist to represent them at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki.

Greek websites eurovision.gr broke the news that Tamta had been confirmed last night, and the story spread to fellow greek website Oikotimes soon afterwards. Partner site, Oikotimes have since backtracked on their news,updating their article toadvise readers to 'read with caution'. The news remains unconfirmed and according to ERT is "likely to prove incorrect".

Tamta is a resident of Greece that moved from Georgia. She would be Greece'sthird non-Greek born singer in a row should she be selected to represent the 2005 winners of the Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki. Helena Paparizou, who won the competition for Greece was born in Sweden of Greek descent. 2006 entrant, Anna Vissi is actually Cypriot.
