CyBC have received a total of 67 entries for the Cypriot preselection which will decide their 2008 candidate for the Eurovision Song Contest. The songs will go through a preliminary selection by a seven-member jury this Saturday.
A seven-member jury will be deciding this weekend which of the 67 entires received in total by the Cypriot broadcaster will proceed to the next phase. Following various heated reactions in the local press in the past years about the way the country's representatives were selected, this year three representatives of the press and media have been included in the jury.
The Cypriot final will take place on 12 January and the winner will be decided by a mixture of televote and jury vote at a 60-40 split. The jury on the night of the final will comprise the current members with the addition of two guest members.
