ERT just announced the Greek representative for Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool this May!
The 16-year-old Victor Vernicos will compete for Greece with the song “What They Say”, a mid-tempo ballad. Victor was chosen among the three finalists of the Greek selection by a 7-member jury. The talented artist belongs to the family of PANIK Records.
The Greek song will be published sometime in February along with the official music video.
The road to the decision
The road to the decision of Greece has been quite the ride. First all submitted entries were listened to by two committees, which consisted of a professional jury and a public jury, and then the decision-making phase begun. From the 106 submitted songs, it came down to seven and then down to three, to finally choose the young promising artist.
Victor has been involved in music since he was 4 years old. At the age of 8 started taking vocal lessons which he still takes until today. He learned to play the guitar at 10 and started writing his own songs. The young artist released his first song two years ago titled “Fake Club”. He wrote the music and lyrics of the song and was also involved in the production of it. An interesting fact is that Victor will be the youngest representative Greece has ever sent to the contest.
