Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (ERT) initially explored taking a completely different approach for the 2011 contest, also looking to take a more low key and modest approach to their participation in the contest in comparison to previous years when the contest was viewed as a national event.

ERT also explored the option of selecting an act internally, as it had done in previous years, but was unable to secure a major act. After an open call to record labels to submit proposals, on 11 January 2011, ERT officially announced the six candidates for the Greek national final: Antigoni Psihrami, Kokkina Halia, Loukas
, Nikki Ponte, Trimitonio, and Valanto Trifonos. All acts announced were relatively new to the Greek music scene and all came from the popular Greek talent shows "Greek Idol" and "The X Factor" The decision to choose young up-and-coming acts was partially made by the broadcaster to appeal to a younger audience, while also giving the emerging acts a chance to further their careers through their participation in the contest.
