Greece is yet to confirm if whether or not they will be participating at Eurovision 2024. However, local media are reporting that the Greek broadcaster may be looking into using a National Final to select their representative for Malmö.
A televised show in the works?
As reported by the Greek newspaper TO PARON, it is being teported that ERT might be planning a televised show in order to select its representative, following their non-qualification in Liverpool, with the hopes of improving its result on its participation.
The way that ERT has been selecting its Eurovison representative has varied over the years, however, for the past few years the broadcaster has mainly used an internal selection to select the Greek representative, where it has managed to acheive a mixture of results.
