Cyprus are to announce their participant in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 this Friday with CyBC opting for an internal selection.

CyBC the Cypriot national broadcaster is to announce the countries participant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 on Friday. The announcement of the news came via Klitos Klitou who works for the Cypriot national broadcaster and is heavily involved in the countries Eurovision selection. The Tweet from Mr Klitou features the outline of a male artist, hinting that the country has selected a male solo singer to represent them.

Reports last week stated that three artists were in the running to represent them next year in Kyiv. They were a familiar face for Eurovision fans: Loucas Yiorkas, who represented Greece at the contest in 2011 alongside Stereo Mike with the song “Watch My Dance”. The song is one of Greece’s highest scoring recent entries, eventually finishing 7th in the grand final. Since appearing in Eurovision Yiorkas has fallen off the radar, and it is suggested that he is keen to use Eurovision to aid his musical comeback.

Another rumoured name is Charis Savva, another familiar face for Junior Eurovision fans. Savva represented Cyprus at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2008, at the age of 10. She and Elena Mannouri finished in a respectable 10th with their song “Gioupi gia!”, and her youth and powerful vocals make her a fan favourite to represent the island once again.

The third name reportedly in contention is Andreas Leo, who won this year’s edition of the Greek X Factor. He is hence a known face in Cyprus and Greece, and would undoubtedly be a popular public choice to represent the country in Eurovision.
