Six entries. Six judges. One winner. On Sunday, February 1, at 20:30 CET, Cyprus will finally broadcast the grand final of the Eurovision Song Project. It will include a number of mind-blowing interval acts and a good bit of juror-contestant interaction. Sparks will fly. 

TWO GUEST JUDGES

The four judges — Elena Patroklou, Alex Panayi, Tasos Tryfonos and Despina Olympiou — will welcome two music professionals for the final show. They are Nicola Caligiore and Bruno Berberes. Nicola is the Head of the Italian delegation and its international relations manager, while Bruno was the Head of the French delegation from 2002 until 2012 and its casting director. Both have also been members of the international jury for Melodifestivalen and Malta’s Eurovision Song Contest national selection.

STAGE REVEALED

CyBC has unveiled a brand new stage crafted just for the final. Klitos Klitou posted a photo of it on his Facebook account:

At the same time, rehearsals are in full swing, with the host, Antri Karantoni, rehearsing for her own singing and dance numbers at the final!

We can exclusively reveal that juror Alex Panayi will perform a medley of songs with Doody and another contestant. These will include Eurovision hits “Cliché Love Song” and “Alcohol is Free.”

PANAGIOTIS KOUFOGIANNIS LEADS THE POLLS

Judging from the more than 1,000 votes counted in our poll, Panagiotis Koufogiannis is the clear favourite to win the Eurovision Song Project. He currently has 49% of the votes in our poll. He is also leading the ShowTime.cy poll. However, he didn’t impress the Wiwi Jury, our in-house panel of musical unprofessionals.

Sophia Patsalides, the Cypriot Junior Eurovision 2014 representative, also supports him:
