Over the past months, various acts have been confirmed for Eurovision 2021. So far, they’ve all been 2020 acts who will be getting the return ticket to Rotterdam. But things are about to change. Later this morning Wednesday 25 November — broadcaster CyBC will announce the new artist who will represent Cyprus at Eurovision 2021.

News of the announcement was confirmed by CyBC’s Chairman of the Board of Directors, Andreas Frangos. In a tweet, he revealed that an announcement would be made at 10am local time (9:00 CET, 8:00 GMT) on the morning show Όμορφη μέρα κάθε μέρα.

Who will represent Cyprus at Eurovison 2021?

The big question is who has Cyprus selected for Rotterdam. Two acts can already be ruled out.

Earlier in the year CyBC confirmed that the German singer Sandro — who was internally selected for 2020 — would not be asked back for 2021. As well, a spokesperson for Cyprus’ Eurovision 2018 star Eleni Foureira also confirmed that she would not be making a comeback this year.

But in recent months, there has been no shortage of speculation around other artists who are in the running to represent Cyprus at Eurovision 2021. With Greece having already invited back Eurovision 2020 act Stefania to be their supergirl in Rotterdam, Greek music stars are looking to Cyprus as their best chance to make it to Eurovision in 2021.

Greece’s Eurovision 2008 star Kalomira recently confirmed that Cyprus was a possibility for 2021.

Also said to be under consideration by Cyprus is Ilias Kozas, the lead singer of the Greek rock band Koza Mostra. The group previously represented Greece at Eurovision 2013 with the crowd favourite “Alcohol Is Free”.

Other interested artists include The Voice Australia‘s Despina Savva, Greek X Factor star Ian Stratis, Kazakh-Greek X Factor star Eirini Papadopoulou, Australia Decides act Leea Nanos, Cyprus’ Eurovision 2012 star Ivi Adamou, reality stars Konnie Metaxa & Tasos Xiarcho, pop-rock group Melisses, pop icon Vangelis Kakouriotis and singer/model/actress Katerina Stikoudi.

Or it could be someone entirely different. There is certainly no shortage of talent in the region and wiwibloggs readers have made plenty of other good suggestions over the years.

But soon enough, fans will know who Cyprus will be sending to Rotterdam. Wiwibloggs will have full coverage of the announcement.

Who do you think Cyprus has selected for Eurovision 2021? What kind of song should they take to Rotterdam? Tell us your thoughts below!

Marvin Dietmann (Cyprus’ stage director for 2021) started following Greek singer Elena Tsangrinou and she has followed him back, so there you have it

So this comment was not here this morning. Probably meaning that the news had been “embargoed” until this morning up until with the “official” release. And then this comment above was released from the “filter” because why not.

Sandro put his heart and soul into RUNNING so it is very shady saying it could have been better. Also Sandro is now known as SAMMY CLAY.
