CyBC, the public broadcaster responsible for the participation of Cyprus in events organised by the European Broadcasting Union is expected to confirm the selection method for the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, in which the island is making it's return.

A collaboration between CyBC and MAD TV Cyprus will be initiated, in a bit to bolster the standing in terms of song and production quality. Whilst the two broadcasters will be working hand-in-hand, a similar tandem to the one used by Greece, record labels will not be involved according to insiders. Very little has been revealed as of yet but we understand that the competition is open to international songwriters but at least one of them must be Cypriot. 

The aim is simple, Cyprus would love to win the Eurovision Song Contest or at least come close to achieving the success achieved back in 2004 with "Stronger Every Minute" performed by the one and only Lisa Andreas. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter as a successor to Despina Olympiou will be selected through a high profile public selection.

CyBC, the national broadcaster responsible for the participation of Cyprus at the Eurovision Song Contest is yet to make a formal decision with regards to whether they will be present in Copenhagen, Denmark. Earlier this year, the Mediterranean Nation was represented by Despina Olympiou and her song An Me Thimasai which unfortunately failed to make an impact and languished in fifteenth (15th) place with just eleven (11) points in total. This could be very much one of the reasons why the nation might opt out of the competition at least for a year but nothing is certain at this stage.

escflashmalta.com had the pleasure of speaking to Evi Papamichael, the Head of Delegation for Cyprus in recent editions of the Eurovision Song Contest who stated that 'no official decision has been taken yet' opting not to answer on whether CyBC is leaning more towards a yes or a no. Cyprus is one of the countries to compete at the annual competition which is yet to record a victory with the best results obtained being a fifth place on three occasions; in 1982 with Anna Vissi and her song Mono I Agapi, in 1997 with Hara and Andreas Constantinou with the track Mana Mou and the most recent one being in 2005 when Lisa Andreas took to the stage with the melodic Stronger Every Minute. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.
