Songs are falling in this last exciting week before the submission deadline ahead of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin. One of the last countries to unveil their game is the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Andromache will represent the island of Aphrodite with the entry ‘Ela’!

Are you more FuegoReplay or El Diablo? Well, this year you’ll be going Ela! Cypriot national broadcaster CyBC announced that German-born singer Andromache has been internally selected to represent Cyprus at the forthcoming 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin with the entry Ela. The song was premiered earlier on CyBC’s afternoon talk show Ola Stin Aera.
