A Greek tragedy has been avoided as ERT (Greek National Broadcaster) has given the task of organising the Greek Eurovision Selection for 2013 to Mad TV. ERT had reached out to local Record Companies in trying to get them to source the organising of the National Selection and Eurovision Preparations for Malmo. After no agreement was made with any label, ERT assigned their Eurovision 2013 selection to private music TV Channel MAD TV.
Mad TV have allegedly selected 4 artists to compete in the National final.
- Aggeliki Iliadi
- Koza Mostra & Agathonas Iakovides
- Alex Leon
- Thomai Apegi
Each of these artists are known in Greece and the local region
Here is a selection of their music to date.
A young, stunning and talented singer. Think of an Ana Vissi in training.

Koza Mostra & Agathonas Iakovides
This cross generational collaboration seems to be new so here is a song from Koza Mostra – Think a Greek version of the Beastie Boys

Koza Mostra will perform with Agathonas Iakovides – a traditional Greek musician who is highly respected

Dance all the way. Think the Hellenic David Guetta

Something fresh yet nostalgic. Soul and Jazz singer that could be compared to a Greek Paloma Faith.
