Eurovision D-Day in Cyprus! Tonight, Cyprus selects the song to be performed by Constantinos Christoforou at the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest. Constantinos has been internally selected by CyBC to represent his country. Tonight, he will present four songs. One of them will make it to Kiev.
In a show to be hosted by Tasos Trifonos and Eleni Manousaki, four songs for Kiev will be performed by Constantinos Christoforou:
� Ela ela
� If you go
� She is no fool
Two songs have been written by Constantinos Christoforou himself, the two other songs by Mike Connaris, composer of last year's Cypriot entry Stronger every minute, performed by Lisa Andreas. Esctoday.com respects CyBC's demand not to reveal the composer of each entry in order not to influence the voting. 60% of the results will be decided by televoting, the other 40% by a professional jury.
The Cypriot national final will be aired live from Limassol. Guest stars in the Cypriot national final are last year's Eurovision Song Contest winner Ruslana, the Cypriot Eurovision Song Contest representative of 1992 and 1994 Evridiki, and the popular Greek singer and composer Dimitris Corgialas. Together with Daphne Bokota, the three guest stars will make up the professional jury. Furthermore Constantinos will sing some more songs from his second solo album Idiotiki Parastasi.
