The Greek national broadcaster Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (ERT) announced that they will use a national final in order to find the Greek representative in Lisbon, after two consecutive years of internal selection.This decision was later reversed when all but one of the competing finalists' record labels were unable to provide a guarantee of the €20,000 fee requested by ERT, and thus Gianna Terzi was internally selected with the song "Óneiró mou". The song is having a good reception in Greece and it's number 1 in the ITunes chart of Greece.

Spain decided to chose the song among all the participants in their kind of reality show Operacion Triunfo, like did in 2002, 2003 and 2004.
Instantly the song reach the number 1 in the ITunes chart, but attention, as we always say ITunes is just a real time sample of what is trending. The real chart are the official ones where people invest some money for having thesongs (apart from streaming).
The surprise came when the song that place 3rd is now the official number 1 in Spain, the only from the National Final to get it and a very big case of success! Lo Malo is the number 1! The last time a national artist peaked one in the spanish chart was two years ago by Enrque Iglesias.
Influenced by the victory of Salvador last year, all the countries are somehow chosing ballads in oposition to more up tempo songs. Tu Canción is now 3rd in the charts and Almaya, as they called them, could place high in Eurovision but Lo Malo would be for sure what we expect from Spain: a song to remember, actual, funny, performed by two beautiful womans, rythm and of course the memories of Dance, Sun, Beach... This is what we expect from Spain, right?
Eurovision is a competition and surprises always happen! We will never know if Lo Malo would have done better than the chosen ballad, but right now the popularity is obvious!
