Rumours have been hotting up around Cyprus‘ act for Eurovision 2020 and now it appears the broadcaster is ready to tell us something. Today CyBC released a photo which suggests an announcement will be coming soon.

The broadcaster shared the teaser photo today on Facebook, along with the hashtags #esc2020 #teamCY and #announcementloading.

Posted by CYBC: Eurovision Cyprus on Friday, November 29, 2019

The image shows an audience at a concert. We can’t see who is on stage due to the heavy smoke, but the pic at least suggests it’s the sort of pop performer who would be at home at such a setting, not, say, a jazz vocalist who normally plays intimate venues.

As well as the concert pic and the Eurovision 2020 logo, the image also includes text simply saying “Loading…”.

The teaser follows a series of Facebook posts from CyBC looking back at Cyprus’ Eurovision entries from recent years. Yesterday CyBC celebrated Tamta’s “Replay”, so it seems today may be the time for Cyprus’ 2020 Eurovision star to take centre stage.

Who will represent Cyprus in Rotterdam?

There has already been plenty of speculation as to the artist who will represent Cyprus in Rotterdam. Top of the list is the American-Greek German singer Sandro Nicolas.

He is best known for his participation on The Voice of Germany in 2018. There he made it to the sing-off rounds. Earlier this year Sandro represented the United States in New Wave 2019, the international contest for young singers. There he placed sixth.

Earlier reports suggested that Sandro could be singing a song titled “Mucho calor”, however latest reports suggest this song has been taken off the list due to disagreements with the songwriters.

Sandro is not the only artist under consideration for Eurovision 2020. CyBC has reportedly been in talks with Eurovision 2012 star Ivi Adamou, however, the “La La Love” singer turned down the opportunity for family reasons. Earlier this year she gave birth to her first child. R&B singer Ian Stratis is another artist said to have been under consideration.

What do you think? What does the teaser mean? Who should represent Cyprus at Eurovision 2020? Tell us your thoughts below!

Hey, isn’t that just the Eurovision 2019 stage in the picture? I see the triangle that was on the stage. Therefore, I don’t think the picture itself gives any indication of Cyprus next artist for Eurovision. Anyone else see it, or is it just me?

Mucho calor? I really hope that isn’t it. That’d be a straightforward indication that Cyprus is moving into Fuego Mark 3.

Speaking of jazz vocalists, if there’s one who I would love to see participate, or at the very least be an interval act, at next year’s Eurovision, it has got to be Caro Emerald. She had previously stated, in 2017, that she would consider participating at Eurovision, but that the Dutch broadcaster did not contact her before. Usually host broadcasters play it safe with their entry following their win, and Caro has stated that participation may be risky for her career, so Avrotros should seriously consider her as the interval act in Rotterdam. This woman is fabulous, and one of… Read more »
