Excitement for the upcoming 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm is building ever faster, and Greek national broadcaster ERT 1 will be stoking appetites further with two special TV shows, the first of which will be screened this Saturday (16 April) at 21:00 CET.

Constantinos Christoforou, who has represented Cyprus at the Eurovision Song Contest on three occasions (in 1996 and 2005 as a solo artist, and in 2002 as a member of the boyband ONE), will be presenting both shows.  The first show will showcase the first semi-final of Eurovision 2016 (in which Greece and Cyprus are participating) with the second show (on Saturday 23 April at 21:00 CET) to highlight semi-final two.

Constantinos will be joined by an informal jury of former Eurovision Song Contest artists and Eurovision experts, spanning both older and more modern times. Eurovision enthusiasts will not want to miss these shows…
