The Cypriot public broadcaster has denied that Eleni Foureira has been approached to represent Cyprus at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
Following reports in Cypriot media that Eleni Foureira had been approached to represent Cyprus for a second time at the Eurovision Song Contest, CyBC has denied that the singer has been approached.
It was originally reported by showtime-cy that the Cypriot broadcaster had approached the singer with a proposal to represent Cyprus in 2021. This follows the confirmation two weeks ago that Sandro would not be representing Cyprus, having been selected for the 2020 contest which was subsequently cancelled.
Cyprus is one of seven countries who have opted to hold a new selection process to determine their representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.

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.
