Marlain Angelidou has done Eurovision before by representing Cyprus in the 1999 contest with Tha'nai erotas. This Saturday, she is trying once more in the Cypriot final with something entirely different, a song of her own that speaks about being rejected just for being different.
Rejection (Set me free) is a funk rock song inspired by Marlain Angelidou's days in the musical theatre. It has a message to convey about how being different from the norm can cause rejection but also how it makes one stronger in the end.
Just before starting rehearsals for the Cypriot final this Saturday, Marlain spoke to esctoday.com about her song and the story behind it, about her motives when entering the Eurovision run once more, about the contest itself and about her immediate plans.
