Hot off the press. Eurovision Ireland has been told that Cyprus will not this year select a singer who will perform all the songs in the national final but that it will be an open invitation to all singers and composers. For a country so small that have produced a very large number of successful singers over the years. So expect to see some more familiar faces back in the Cypriot National Final 2013.
Remember this Cypriot Classic from 1982 that came 5th.

As for Greece – well they are still deciding if they can afford to make the trip to Malmö but they too have also expressed an interest in reverting to an open final like they had some years ago. This could tempt record companies into sponsoring a good act if it gets selected for Greece which would help the National Broadcaster. remember this Greek Classic from Millstreet in 1993 that went Top 10. It can happen again.

Once we hear more news on Cyprus and Greece we will let you know.
