#Eurovision 2023 : Greece’s Highs and Lows at Eurovision

During the build up to next week’s Eurovision song contest and whilst rehearsal coverage has been restricted this week, due to media access being closed to the first and second rehearsals, we at Eurovision Ireland decided to look back at the highs and lows at Eurovision of each country taking part this year . This time, it’s the turn of Greece.

When did Greece first take part in Eurovision?

Greece joined the Eurovision family in 1974 when Marinella took to the stage in Brighton with her song “Krasi, thalasske t’agori mou”, She finished in 11th place.

What is Greece’s highest point at Eurovision?

To date, Greece’s best result at Eurovision has been the contest in Kyiv in 2005 , when Helena Paparizou brought the country victory with “My Number one”. Just four years previously, Helena also achieved third place as part of the duo Antique, in Copenhagen, Denmark , with “Die for you “.

Greece achieved another two 3rd placings in 2004 with Sakis Rouvas and “Shake it” and 2008 with Kalomira and “Secret Combination”.

What is Greece’s lowest point at Eurovision ?

Before the introduction of the Semi Finals , Greece’s worst result at Eurovision was way back in 1998 when Thalassa came 20th with 12 points. Since the introduction of the Semi Finals, Greece had a 100 % qualification record up until Stockholm 2016 when Argo with “Utopian land” failed to get Greece through to the final .

Yianna Terzi suffered the same fate in Lisbon in 2018, when she failed to qualify for the final with her song “Onirou Mou”.

How will Greece do in 2023?

This year Victor Vernicos has been selected to represent Greece in Liverpool with his song “what they say”. He is competing in Semi Final 2 on 11th May.Can he get Greece to the Grand Fina for the second year running?
