As announced before, the Cypriot broadcaster, CyBC, decided to go another way this year with their national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest.
Namely, they decided to pick their singer before and then later, to pick a song for the artist. The show used for that was called Performance and a total of nine singers fought for the possibility to represent their country.
In the end it was Christos Milordos to take the trophy with more than 11,000 votes. He was followed by Louis Panagiotou with almost 6,000 votes and Annita Skoutela with a bit over 4,000 votes.
You can check out his performance in the video below.
This year Cyprus qualified for the Final in Oslo and finished 21st in it with Jon Lilygreen & The Islanders' song Life Looks Better In Spring. It was the first time since 2005 when a Cypriot representative qualified.
