While the Greek media paid little attention to the participation of George Alkeos in the Eurovision, as he himself does not create too much noise about it, the bets on the Internet for this year's song contest launch in the first position the song „Opa”, which will present Greece.

This year the eyes of the European media, which cover the 55th Contest Eurovision, which will be held in few days in Oslo, are focused on Georgious Alkeos. Journalists bombarded him with questions about the situation in the country and after the tragedy during the protest in Athens on May 5 Alkeos decided to discontinue his tour and give interviews on Skype and email.

"What is happening to me now is indescribable! ... The Turks who came here and we had a wonderful time, were constantly asking us whether we are good" shares Alkeos and also adds that music, art and sports should not mix with politics. "One of my dreams is to represent Greece at the Eurovision, as it happens with every musician ..." said Alkeos in an interview for the newspaper Ethnos.

"The song was written before these events happened, but it is still quite appropriate for the moment as all of us, the people from the team, as you did we anticipated what will happen. And the song was written in that direction... We did not want to write a song that will have meaning of a celebration, but the meaning of passing through the difficulties and problems."

"Eurovision is a contest that makes you have a good time. You gather with your group of friends and laugh, drink, eat, criticize, say what you like and what not. It is an amazing coincidence that this year we go there with a Greek verse, and the video was filmed on the island of Milos. We are trying to be calm and focus on the music that unites the nations. My motto is: "Live it or it or leave it". If you do not do it with your heart, don’t even start it. To the contest we are going as "Alkeos and friends", because as Greeks we attach great importance to friendship", shared his views on the competition Alkeos.

For the competition itself, the Greek singer said that the stage was made using the latest technology, but did not forget to note that the Greek organization of the Eurovision so far was the best. He seems sure of himself and his team by saying they are more than ready for the challenge, although they have changed the composition and parts of the choreography as well as the fact that they will come out on the stage screaming "Opa".
