The Greek entry for Eurovision 2019 has released a short teaser clip of her song “Better Love” on Instagram.
Katerine Duska’s Eurovision entry for Greece is due to be released on 6 March. As expectation builds, the singer has been teasing fans on social media:
Katerine recently travelled to the UK to record the song which reports say is “alternative”, and not a ballad.
In a radio interview last week, Katerine described the song as “mid-tempo pop song which has pulse and strength.” The song is composed by the singer herself alongside Leon of Athens.
Ioannis Drosos, the CEO of Greek broadcaster ERT, has revealed that the broadcaster wants to win the contest this year, and that he has high hopes for the entry. He also noted that Katerine will not be attending any promotional parties (such as the London Eurovision Party or Eurovision In Concert) as they will mainly be promoting the entry via social media and the Greek Embassies across Europe. ERT is planning to host a Eurovision party following the song reveal, however, inviting fans of the contest and media.

Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest
Greece debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974, when they were represented by Marinella and the song “Krasi, thalassa kai t’agori mou” which finished in 11th place with 7 points. Three years later Greece earned their first top 5 finish with Paschalis, Marianna, Robert and Bessy who finished in 5th place with “Mathima solfege”. In 2001 Greece achieved their first top 3 result with Antique and the song “I Would Die For You”. The song became a European hit, and charted across the continent. In 2005 Helena Paparizou returned to the Eurovision stage as a solo artist and brought Greece their first, and to date only, victory. Her song “My Number One” won with 230 points, beating runners-up Malta by 38 points.
