As the end of the national final season draws closer, internally selected artists are finalising their entries for the Contest. Now, Andrew Lambrou, representing Cyprus, has announced he will reveal his song for Eurovision 2023 on March 2nd.
Lambrou films music video
Andrew Lambrou revealed the release date for his entry whilst in Athens for five days. According to INFE Greece, Lambrou was in the Greek capital to film the music video for his entry. Whilst there, he also met with Victor Vernicos, who is to represent Greece at the Contest in Liverpool. No specific date has been given for Victor’s release of his Eurovision effort – “What They Say”.
We already know that Andrew’s song for Eurovision 2023 is already finished. The song was written earlier in the year and recorded in Stockholm. The song was written by Thomas Stengaard and Jimmy Jansson. Steengaard already has extensive Eurovision experience, co-writing entries including “Adrenalina” and “El Diablo”.
Cyprus’ Eurovision journey
The Mediterranean nation made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981, where Island participated with the song “Monika” and place 6th. Since then, Cyprus has participated 38 times (31 of which where they were in the Grand Final).
In 2022, CyBC internally selected Andromache to represent them in Turin with the song “Ela”. During their participation in Turin, Andromache failed to qualify for the Grand Final, and managed to place 12th in the Semi-Final, receiving 63 points from the jury and televoters.
