Tonight, Christos Mylordos was the winner of the local talent show Performances among nine contestants. Newcomer Christos will represent Cyprus in Germany with a song which will be selected at a later date.

After the Netherlands, Cyprus is the second country to select their hopeful for the 56th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. CyBC decided to change the method to select their entrant this year. Instead of the national final of the past years, the Cypriot broadcaster organised Performances, a local talent show whose winner gets to fly the Cypriot flag to Germany.

Tonight, nine artists (mostly newcomers) performed and the televote decided that Christos Mylordos should be Cyprus' 29th representative in the contest. The song Christos will perform next May will be selected at a later date.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
