Stefania has submitted a total of three songs to ERT as part of her bid to represent Greece at Eurovision 2020.
EurovisionFun reports that Stefania has submitted three songs to the Greek national broadcaster, ERT. The three songs were submitted to the broadcaster after the singers management organised a focus group. The focus group made up of journalists and musicians selected the three songs that have been shortlisted.
Two of the three songs have been composed by Dimitris Kontopoulou and ARCADE, while the third is by an entirely Dutch team. According to members of the focus group, two of the three songs could bring Greece a strong result in Rotterdam. The three songs are described as:
- Song 1 – Pop midtempo

- Song 3 – Ethnic pop banger
ERT and Stefania are yet to confirm whether the singer has been selected to represent Greece at Eurovision 2020. However, it is widely expected in the coming weeks that the singer will be confirmed.
