FINALLY! Following two months of weekly pre-recorded shows, the Eurovision Song Project will go live for the final. It’s the biggest Cypriot selection ever held and we are gagging to know who will win. The host — former Miss Universe Cyprus Antri Karantoni — will welcome us all to a high-stakes show full of emotion, surprises and six very excited acts. You can watch the national final live here from 20:30 CET. The show will also be broadcast on the Eurovision.tv web player.

The result will be determined by 50% televoting and 50% jury voting. The phone lines have been open for one week, and Cypriots are voting for their favourite entry already. The jury will include the four judges — Tasos Tryfonos, Alex Panayi, Elena Patroklou and Despina Olympiou — as well as two guest jurors, Nicola Caligiore and and Bruno Berberes.
