Victor Vernicos releases Greece’s song entry for Eurovision 2023


When he was just 14 years old, Victor Vernicos wrote the song What They Say.

This May, the now 16-year-old Greek Danish singer, songwriter and producer, will sing it live on stage when he represents Greece in Eurovision 2023.

According to Victor’s label Panik Records, the song celebrates the younger generation “who dare to dream and create despite difficulties.”

The song, and the accompanying video, are meant to encourage folks to share their feelings.

Victor first became popular after releasing the song Hope It’s In Heaven two years ago. In March 2022, he released his official debut song as a professional artist, called Fake Club.

Victor was announced as the Greek Eurovision 2023 representative in late January.

Greece made their Eurovision debut in 1974. Over the decades they had various degrees of success until 2001 when Greece finished in third place with Antique’s (I Would) Die For You and then on managed to stay in the top 10 for most of the decade and also won the Contest for the first time in 2005 with Helena Paparizou’s My Number One.
