Evridiki at Eurovision

The Cypriot artist firstly took part in the contest in 1992 in Malmö, Sweden. With her entry Teriazoume, she received a 11th place with 57 points.

During her second trial, Evridiki flew to Dublin in 1994. Her song Eimai anthropos ki ego achieved once again the 11th place with 51 points.

13 years later, in 2007, being decided to claim Cyprus’ first victory in the competition, Evridiki was internally selected by CyBC to represent the nation along with Dimitris Korgialas. Although their French-speaking song Comme ci, comme ça was one of the favorite songs of the fans and a great favorite for the victory, it only managed a 15th place in the semi-final and was eliminated at this stage. This has also been the only French entry from Cyprus to date.
