Greece 2013 || Koza Mostra & Agathon Iakovidis - Alcohol Is Free
« on: November 29, 2012, 03:25:23 PM »

According to the news by esctoday.com, there is a possibility that Greece will withdraw from ESC 2013.

Quote
Despite having confirmed their intention to take part in the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, Greece may very well have to sit this one out due to cost.

One more European country seems to be struggling to meet the financial requirements of a participation to the Eurovision Song Contest. Greece, one of the contest’s most ardent supporters is highly likely to pull out this year as the broadcaster has not been able to attract enough sponsorship so far.

Mr Johnny Kalimeris, Executive Member of the Board at ERT, stated to esctoday.com that although the final decision will be made shortly it is highly unlikely that the country will be able to take part this year.

The Greek broadcaster has lately suffered large budget cuts due to the crisis the country faces. Furthermore, the rise in the cost of participation and the considerable cost required for the entire project make it extremely difficult to find willing private sponsors.

In my own opinion, it would be good if Greece withdrew because the whole country is in a huge economical disaster. Participating in ESC is far from being one of the most important things in a situation like this.

After listening to it I quite like it got the traditional Greek feel to it.

Obviously, Greece does not want to win this year, however this song is very cool, and atm i'd say it enters high as 2nd place in my list (however i did not hear all the songs so far...)
