Although Andromachi did not qualify for the final and RIK had the lowest rating of a Eurovision final since 2013,the Cypriot public broadcaster is already planning its selection for Eurovision 2023.
There have been hints since September this year, when the CEO of Panik Records Giorgos Arsenakos revealed in an interview to OK magazine, that Panik was in talks with RIK already for the 2023 contest about a talent show, the winner of which will represent Cyprus in Eurovision 2023.
Even though there is no official announcement yet, Greek online media are reporting that the BBC format All Together Now, which will be aired on Alpha TV the fall of 2022, is going to be the show where the representative of Cyprus for the 2023 contest will be chosen. The format has been successfully adapted by many countries and in each episode, contestants perform in front of 100 judges, aiming to gain their vote. In the Greek version, it is rumored that the judges will be 50 instead of 100 and it will include singers, songwriters and radio producers among them. The production will be by Barking Well Media, and seems that the host will be the owner of the production company and TV host, Nikos Koklonis.
Below you can see the 2019 UK representative Michael Rise, who rose to fame through the British version of All together Now when he got the vote of all 100 judges.
