For weeks, it’s strongly been rumoured that Tamta would be representing Cyprus at Eurovision 2019. Now the Georgian-Greek diva has finally revealed that she IS in talks with the Cypriot broadcaster CYBC.

As reported by OGAE Greece, Tamta recently opened up on the Greek morning show Breakfast, chatting with host Fay Skorda. But Tamta isn’t saying too much. When asked if viewers would see her on the Eurovision stage, she gave the intriguing response, “I wish you could see me, but I can’t tell you right now.”

We might not have long to wait to find out. Tamta also told the show that “I have a deadline that is not too far away. A meeting is planned, and we will make the final decision then.”

And despite rumours that Tamta has already recorded a demo of “Replay”, she claims that she hasn’t even heard the Alex P song yet. She explained this had to happen before she says yes. “I just have to listen to the song first,” she said. “Because without listening to the song, I cannot agree to anything.”

Tamta also confirmed that while Cyprus is interested, there has been no similar Eurovision offer from Greece.

Will Tamta be part of the Cyprus dream team?

While Tamta hasn’t been confirmed for Eurovision 2019, Cyprus’ broadcaster CYBC have revealed a lot of details about their planned entry for Tel Aviv.

The song is called “Replay” and includes the lyrics “You need my love on replay” and “Replay replay replay yeah”.

“Replay” has been written by Greek-Swedish hitmaker Alex P, the man behind Eleni Fouriera’s “Fuego” and Ivi Amadou’s “La La Love”. He will be assisted by Sweden-based songwriters Teddy Skye, Viktor Svensson, Kristoffer “Bonn” Fogelmark and Albin Nedler.

Three of the team members previously cowrote Tamta’s 2015 single “Unloved”.

The performance staging will be created by the Swedish choreographer and production designer Sacha Jean-Baptiste, who was also behind the fiery staging for “Fuego”.

Cyprus seems to be assembling a dream team, ready to take aim for the top of the scoreboard in May. The one question remains: will Tamta be part of that team? Many fans are hoping for a Christmas present in the form of Tamta saying yes.

What do you think? Should Tamta say yes to Eurovision? Can she give Cyprus its first Eurovision victory? Share your thoughts below!

I’m so sick with that diva attitude. Just accept their offer and stay in the semifinal!

Honestly if I were her I wouldn’t do it. Seriously that’s either too brave or just stupid to go after Eleni. Everyone will compare her to Eleni and that’s really hard to top. We’ll see what happens.

She might end up like Loboda while Eleni is like Ani Lorak but who knows what will happen soon.

just like Eleni, Tamta is going for the experience not for the result

You know I feel bad for Greece. They’ve really struggled recently and now it looks like another of their possible contestants is getting robbed. But they’d probably give Cyprus the 12 points as always.

Robbed? Not sure who Tamta is, but Eleni wanted to represent Greece and ERT repeatedly rejected her, so when CyBC offered her a spot I wouldn’t say they stole her.

EDIT: Commentators below seem to suggest Tamta has also been rejected by ERT

If Tamta says yes to “Replay” then it’s a 2nd year running Cyprus will be represented by a half-Greek woman who was previously rejected by ERT but all the Greek press and journalists will focus all the attention on Cyprus and ignore their own Greek entrant, to quote DJ Khaled… “Congratulations, you played yourself”

It’s good she isn’t going to represent Greece. ERT allegedly rejected her repeatedly for not being a ~real Greek~ just like they did with Eleni Foureira… Cyprus is where the tea is at.

Stop spreading lies. The reason they rejected Tamta was because she did not submit ”Unloved” on time. Furthermore she participated once but failed to qualify not because she is not Greek but because she did not have a good song. Before opening your mouth is better to check your facts first.

Close your damn mouth. Thats your fiction. In 2009 sakis went and he is the biggest pop star so they had every right to reject her. In 2010 she was never even RUMORED to participate. Idiot.

Stop the fake news idiot. ERT is rejecting all the pop stars because they dont like the contest and they dont care. Stop talking for something you dont know

This isn’t even remotely true. By the way, Greece has sent none greeks in Eurovision before like Sarbel (Who BTW was the one they picked over Tamta in the greek final because he had the better song).

What is going on with the anti greek rhetoric i’ve been seen all of a sudden regarding ESC? Yall trying to do the whole Cyprus vs Greece thing happen when Cyprus and Greece are one and the same , all greeks.
