Eurovision 2023

#EUROVISION 2023: A history of each country’s Highs and Lows at Eurovision.

Rehearsals are well and truly under way at the M and S Bank arena in Liverpool and while the first week’s rehearsals are closed to press and fan media ,meaning that we are unable to bring you our usual live blogs of the rehearsals, we at Eurovision Ireland decided to take a look at the highs and lows of each country competing in Eurovision this year. Today we are going to focus on Cyprus.

When did Cyprus first participate at Eurovision?

Cyprus joined the contest in 1981 when the band Island entered with their song “Monika “. They came a very respectable 6th place , in the days where we had just the Grand Final on a Saturday night.

What was Cyprus’s highest point at Eurovision?

Cyprus have had some mixed results over the years but undoubtedly their finest moment so far in the contest came in Lisbon in 2018 , when Eleni Foureira almost took the country to victory with the uptempo song “Fuego” . Choreographed to within an inch of its life. Cyprus started Eurovision fortnight quite a way down in the betting odds, only to become a favourite to win when the performance was seen at rehearsals .

What was Cyprus’s lowest point ?

Cyprus finished last in 1986 with their song “Toro zo” sung by Elpida. Since the introduction of the Semi Finals,they failed to qualify for the final between 2006 and 2009 and again in 2011 and 2013, leading to them to take a break for a year before returning in 2015 , when , up until the 2022 contest they managed to qualify for the final every year.

How will Cyprus do in 2023?

This year, Andrew Lambrou will represent Cyprus with his song “Break a broken heart”. Can he succeed in getting Cyprus back to the Grand Final?
