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.
