Not a good start. Switzerland obviously off limits this year but at least we know that El Diablo will not be representing Germany, Malta or the UK.
I wish someone would put a stop to this. Her songs make the cut because they do in fact appeal to many people. I almost feel a lot of the comments here and elsewhere try to cut her down for being prolific and good at her job.
It has helped elevate the quality of the contest in terms of ensuring less countries are sending gimmicky nonsense, but has made the contest more homogenous in terms of song style.
If Cyprus had a mega songwriting talent then they would have won the domestic internal selection? The problem is the scale of this practice occurring in several countries.
It keeps them down. Yes, Nancy, she is very successful — at turning the contest into her own private industry. Eurovision music is a marketplace just like the music industry is at large.
Are you suggesting that songwriters need loyalty and allegiance to one country, Jonas? That sounds almost parochial, if not awfully and restrictively nationalist.
But I think that El Diablo will be completely different than both of them. Hopefully El Diablo will be something like these 2 songs.
Have in mind that raeggeton-ish and Spanish-influenced music is topping almost every chart in Greece and Cyprus for the last 5 years Hello Foureira.
There is a huge trend in these countries that is still alive. Cyprus has become just like Sweden and Azerbaijan: they have no culture of their own, so they just import.
What do you mean? Elena herself is greek. You cannot separate cypriots from greek singers cause they share the same industry, greeks go for cyprus and cypriots for greece since always.
And in Cyprus and Greece nobody cares cause they consider themselves one nation in two countries. I mean exactly what I wrote: not a single person involved in this act is from Cyprus.
No culture. I mean songs performed by artists in Greece and Cyprus , influenced by reggeton music or combined with Greek elements, lyrics etc. The singer is greek, but for us is the same!
Even worse haha. Its like Sweden should have a american singer and 4 american song writers. As I look to the names who wrote her song, I am afraid of it.
Wait, why does my previous comment need approval? It took me a while to read all the names of these famous authors and personalities.
Seems they are writing an entire opera. Hope it wil not be to much rumor for nothing. Anyway good luck to her, and to her team.
Why is CyBC overlooking Cypriot talent and always betting on artists from other countries? Cyprus had the chance to boost their industry and they blow it for the sake of looking good in front of the media.
I guess that sums it up. I think a male act for Cyprus next year is a good idea. Something witty and catchy.
Just watch his videos. Pop rock or pop ballad sound more like it. He could go Shawn Mendes or Luca Hanni. Third non-Cypriot artist with zero connections to Cyprus in a row.
Sounds promising. I think Cyprus will return into Top5 of The Grand Final o Eurovision because This Guy is so unbelievable charm on stage and his vocals are quite better than Foureira or Tamta ones.
Well done Cyprus from Spain. Omg, so much hate over one name. Calm down queens. If Cyprus chooses a female singer, you say they imitated Eleni and Tamta.
If they choose a dance song, they imitated Fuego and Repay. They chose a man and now you say they imitated Switzerland, as if Switzerland was the only country that sent a male singer in Eurovision.
You ask for something traditional or a ballad, Cyprus gave you both of these multiple times and no one voted for them!
I think Srbuk was confirmed on 30 November. Tamta was announced in December and Jonida was selected in December as well.
So only Srbuk! One thing though is that Cyprus have since selected a singer with an ethnic and or national connection to another competing country even aside from Greece- Armenia for Hovig, Albania for Eleni, Georgia for Tamta and Germany for Sandro.
Well no better way to kickstart a likely career in the Greek and Cypriot music industry than being given a shot to represent a country in Eurovision.
Eleni did not want to sing in Greek when ERT decided to try something different: a singer to represent Greece singing in Greek.
On 14 July , CyBC officially confirmed Cyprus' return to the contest for , with the country then reaching the final five times in a row between and Since its first entry, Cyprus has participated every year except , and In , Cyprus withdrew its entry after broadcaster CyBC determined that the intended entry was ineligible; the song had been entered but not selected in the national selection process, which was a violation of the Cypriot selection rules.
In , the country did not qualify for the contest due to insufficiently high average scores in previous contests, according to the qualification process at the time.
In , the broadcaster decided to not participate in the contest and cited public indifference, public opinion regarding the —13 Cypriot financial crisis , and related budget restrictions as factors for not taking part.
Since their return in the country has never failed to qualify, and even made their best result with Eleni Foureira coming second in As of , Cyprus held the record for the most times competing in the Eurovision Song Contest without a single win with 36 entries into the contest.
The annual exchange of the maximum 12 points with Greece in the Semi Final and Final has become an amusingly predictable occurrence which is now often met with derision from the audience, but there have been exceptions.
The last time Cyprus gave Greece fewer than 12 points was in 8 points. Since the advent of televoting in , the two countries have consistently given each other the maximum 12 points until the Contest , where neither country gave their 12 to the other, but curiously both gave them to Italy.
Cyprus and Turkey never exchanged votes until , a taboo attributed to the ongoing Cyprus dispute. Since its first entry in , Cyprus has had a mixture of good and bad results.
The best result achieved so far is a second place, reached by Eleni Foureira at the Contest. In the s and s, Cyprus had managed to reach the top 10 a number of times, something which made the Contest become popular in the Cypriot public.
Since , Cyprus' performance has dropped notably. At the same time when Cyprus' performance in the contest dropped vertically, Greece's performance improved very fast by one win and seven top ten results in one decade.
This created a shift of interest, with the Cypriot public being more interested in the success of the Greek entry. This is probably because Greece, since , seems to send very popular singers that have a well established fan-club in Cyprus, while Cyprus usually elects their contestants through an open talent contest, which often results in somewhat unknown artists representing the country.
The public broadcaster of each participating country in the Eurovision Song Contest assigns a head of delegation as the EBU's contact person and the leader of their delegation at the event.
The delegation, whose size can greatly vary, includes a head of press, the contestants, songwriters, composers and backing vocalists, among others.
Alex Panayi in Dublin Lisa Andreas in Istanbul Evridiki in Helsinki Christina Metaxa in Moscow Despina Olympiou in Malmö Giannis Karagiannis in Vienna Serbia participated the first time as an independent country in and won the contest the same year.
Riverdance was first performed during the interval act of Eurovision Song Contest One of the most popular interval acts in the history of the contest.
Spain's cleverly titled, La La La from contained no fewer than la's.It was later revealed that Cyprus placed ninth in the semi-final, receiving a total of points: 54 points from the televoting and 95 points from Blind Poker juries. One of the most popular interval acts in the history of the contest. In Georgia decided to send the song "We Don't Wanna Put In" to the contest in Moscow, but because of a controversy about the lyrics in the song, EBU banned the song from participating, if the lyrics was not King Loui München.
