2012 entry - GREECE: Aphrodesiac - Eleftheria Eleftheriou

DRAW: Semi 1 (3)

As many people will already know - Greece is now a country owned by the EU, mainly France and Germany. There was a time where there were doubts that there would a Greek presence at the ESC of Baku. ERT pulled some strings, a record company came to the party and we had a national final... in a shopping centre... over the public address system... lip synced and in the darkness. The only credible entry of the final won which was a good thing. Why the official clip is showing them at the shopping centre is so wrong on so many levels.

Let's pass on the fact that this song is going to make the final, because it will. I had my doubts and when you see the clip below, I think that it will change the mind of anyone. (they are a crowd of enthusiasts though). In fact, I've moved from a stance of 'This is the most mediocre ESC entry of all time' to 'What in hell are they doing - they cannot afford to host the ESC'. The last time Greece finished outside of the top 10 was 2003; this year will continue this trend without any doubts.
