๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡พ Cyprus to reveal Eurovision 2024 representative next week?

With the new Eurovision season just starting, some broadcasters are now intensely planning their participation for next year in Malmรถ. Now we have reports that we are close to finding out Cyprus’ representative for next year’s competition.

Announcement imminent

Previously, we have reported that Cyprus was due to select its Eurovision 2024 representative via a National Selection, Fame Story. However, this was shortlived, as Greek broadcaster ERT complained to the EBU about its selection (with Fame Story being recorded and aired in Greece). CyBC then looked into using a National Selection. However, this was quickly dismissed, with CyBC now internally selecting its representative.

Now, Eurovision Fun is reporting that the announcement of Cyprus’ representative is imminent, and could potentially take place next week, with Eurovision Fund even reporting that the delegaion is now looking into their staging.

At the time of writing, CyBC is yet to confirm the news reported.

Cyprus’ Eurovision journey

The Mediterranean nation made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981, where Island participated with the song โ€œMonikaโ€ and place 6th. Since then, Cyprus has participated 39 times (32 of which where they qualified for the Grand Final).

In 2023, CyBC internally selected Andrew Lambrou to represent them in Liverpool with the song โ€œBreak A Broken Heartโ€. During their participation in Liverpool, Andrew qualified for the final, before going on to finish in 12th place with a total of 126 points. The juries gave Cyprus 68 points, whilst the televote awarded Andrew 58 points.
