Despite we are just 10 days away before the beginning of the rehersals in Kyiv, several participating countries are still releasing kind of different versions of their entries to the Eurovision Song Contest.
The 2017 Cypriot Eurovision entry has been composed by none other than the internationally acclaimed Thomas G:son. Gravity has been remixed by 7th Heaven Productions and has been released today. Here you can check that new version of the song below:
The remix has a length of 4:08 minutes and gives the song a more dancing and uptempo type. That version will be probably heard a lot in the clubs in the summer of 2017.
Hovig has made two previous attempts at representing Cyprus at Eurovision. In 2010, he made it to the national final with his upbeat dance number Goodbye, which placed third-equal. In 2015, Hovig competed in the Cypriot national final The Eurovision Song Project, with his song Stone in a River. He eventually placed fourth, but given that runners-up Minus One had their chance at Eurovision the year after, perhaps it’s no surprise that CyBC are drawing on the talent pool of the 2015 national final. It was announced on 21 October 2016 that he got chosen to represent Cyprus in the 62nd edition of the Eurovision Song Contest held in Kyiv.
You could rate the Cypriot entry here on our Facebook poll. Cyprus is going to perform 15th in the first semi-final on 9 May. The 62nd Eurovision Song Contest will take place on 9, 11 and 13 May at the IEC in Kyiv, Ukraine.
