Victor Vernicos has released his Eurovision 2023 entry for Greece called 'What They Say'. The song release faced a delay due to the tragic train incident in Greece where the nation has been in mourning.

'What They Say' is a self-penned track. Victor wrote the song when he was just 14-years-old.

Victor Vernicos Jorgensen aka Victor Vernicos is a 16-year-old Greek Danish singer, songwriter and producer. He gained popularity after his song release 'Hope It’s In Heaven' at the age of just 14.

The young talent was then signed to Royal Music and 25/7 Management who kick started his early career. Back in March 2022 Victor released his official debut song as a professional artist called 'Fake Club'. It received very positive response in the US with college radio stations.

Victor was internally selected by the Greek broadcaster ERT through a process of shortlisted rounds. In the final round the combination of votes from the public committee (50.6%) and the artistic committee (49.4%) selected the Greek entry. 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'.
