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.

The national final was canceled due to financial reasons.
Some days after this news the national broadcaster did an internal selection and announced the artist and song for this year.
It brings back some greek sounds and words to the contest. "Oneiro Mou" is the song and Gianni Terzi is the artist, who will fight for a final ticket in Lisbon.
The translation of the song title is "my dream", we will see if the particiaption at the final will just be a dream or turn into reality.
