Cyprus: 31 years in Eurovision

After 2005 Cyprus failed to make the final for four years but in 2010 the run of bad luck came to an end when Welsh singer Jon Lilygreen and European band The Islanders took the stage with the song Life looks better in Spring and qualified for the final in 10th place. They finished 21st with 27 points in the grand final.

In 2012 Cyprus entered the song La la love sang by Ivi Adamou which had a lot of fan support and was even considered one of the fan favourites to win the contest. The song qualified for the final in 7th place but finished 16th place in the final.

The last Cypriot entry was of course Despina Olympiou who sang the song An me thimasai which finished in 15th place in the semi final with 11 points.
