The Cypriot national broadcaster, CyBC, is set to begin discussions to determine their Eurovision 2020 participant in mid-September.
Phile News reports that the national broadcaster of Cyprus will begin discussions with record labels regarding the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in mid-September. At this point record labels will be invited to submit their detailed proposals to the Cypriot broadcaster.
The media report confirms that CyBC is opting to continue to internally select the artist that represent them at the Eurovision Song Contest. Since 2016 the broadcaster has internally selected both their singer and song for the competition.
At the 2019 contest, Cyprus was represented by internally selected artist Tamta and her song “Replay”. She finished in 13th position in the Grand Final with 109 points.
Cyprus debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981. Their best result in the contest comes from their 2018 entrant Eleni Foureira, who placed 2nd with her song “Fuego”. Cyprus withdrew from the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014 due to financial difficulties, but returned again in 2015 where they were represented by John Karagiannis.
