A few moments ago, the Greek public broadcaster ERT announced the artist that will represent the country in this year’s contest. Katerine Duska will fly the greek flag to Tel Aviv.
Katerine was born in Montreal, Canada by Greek parents. In the beginning, she studied classical guitar. When she was a teenager, she moved to Greece with her family. She studied at the law school in Athens but then realised that she wanted to be a part of the Music Industry. She is an alternative music artist and her voice reminds a lot to Amy Winehouse’s. In 2013 she released her first song “One In A Million”. You can listen to the song “One In A Million” here:
The song that will sing in Israel will be announced on a later day, 7th of March. We only know that she has co-written it. Also, ERT revealed that Yiorgos Kapoutzidis (greek commentator 2006, 2013-2017) and Maria Kozakou (greek commentator 2012-2017) will return as the commentators after one year break.
Greece In Eurovision 2018
Greece last year was represented by Yianna Terzi and her song “Oneiro Mou”. Her powerful ethnic ballad didn’t manage to qualify to the Final, finishing 14th in the Semi-Final. This came after some technical issues at the jury show the night before the Semi. Greece has only missed the final on two occasions, in 2016 and in 2018. Here you can watch Yianna’s appearance in Lisbon:
