Is Helena Paparizou going to Lisbon 2018 for #CYPRUS?


Yes, you read it correctly! First Aleksandr is ry-back… could another veteran be heading back to the contest?

According to Cypriot news portal, the national broadcaster CyBC has thrown the plans for a nation final out of the window and instead made a proposal to former Eurovision winner Helena Paparizou to represent the island at Eurovision in May!

According to the site, Helena has not yet made a decision. But if CyBC have approached her, they must have big things planned for Cyprus at the contest. As we wrote recently, Cyprus is currently the longest serving country in Eurovision without a win… Helena came 3rd in 2001 and 1st in 2005… she’s certainly proved her Eurovision credentials – could she be the answer to their prayers?!

Our friends over at ESCToday contacted the Cypriot broadcaster to ask if there was any truth to what reported, but CyBC did not wish to comment. We’ll keep you posted – as soon as we know, so shall you!

What do you think? Would you like to see Helena represent Cyprus at Eurovision? Could she become the first woman to win Eurovision TWICE?!
