Cyprus: Silia Kapsis “wipes out” her competition!

Silia Kapsis, the 17-year-old Cyprus representative in the 68th Eurovision Song Contest, is looking forward to representing her country on stage. In a video she posted on social media a while ago, she gives us a taste of what we can expect from her and her team in Malmö.

Even though it is shot just by single camera, it is capable to showcase both Silia’s talents as well as the professionalism and the aspiration of the Cypriot delegation for Eurovision 2024.

A few days prior, Silia Kapsis’s choreographers for Eurovision 2024 were made public by RIK. They are Los Angeles-based, Kelly Sweeney and Guy Groove, who have plenty of television show experience.

What’s next for the Cypriot delegation?

The young artist is currently in Australia. She will record the final version of the song with which he will represent Cyprus in the 68th Eurovision Song Contest very soon, while in January, after first traveling to Los Angeles to work with her choreographers, she will then return to Cyprus to shoot the video-clip of her entry.

Following that, she will travel to Athens, where she will stay until May in order to perfect her performance for the Eurovision stage.

The Cypriot delegation, as well as the artistic team that took on the project this year, are already working on all the details of the participation, with the goal of achieving the best possible result and a high placement for the country in the final. One thing is for sure, that we will be impressed in May with Silia’s vocals and dancing, which are both astonishing.

More specifically, she stated:

I’m so excited to be representing Cyprus, I’m over the moon! Eurovision is not only a song competition, it’s a celebration of culture, diversity, unity and of course music and incredible talent. I feel so privileged to be up on that stage and I feel so blessed to be given this opportunity.

You’re one of the youngest participants in the Eurovision Song Contest. How does that make you feel?

It’s so exciting. I’m so blessed.

Are there any details you might share regarding the song or the stage performance?

Unfortunately I can’t. I wish I could but it’s a secret. But little things will be popping out here and there.

In 2023 Cyprus was represented by Andrew Lamrou, who also resides in Australia. Do you know him ? Has he given you any advice?

I don’t know him personally but he has reached out to congratulate me and he was super sweet. We can catch up so he can give me a few tips about the whole Eurovision process. He’s lovely and amazing.

You compose your own music and have put out a few music videos, the most of which were filmed in Los Angeles. What connection do you have with Hollywood?

It’s like my second home. I go there often to work with some of the best choreographers of the world. I’ve made so many connections and friendships. It’s amazing over there. So many opportunities!

What was your mother’s reaction when she heard the news?

My mum was over the moon. She is biggest supporter. She always tells me to believe in myself and never give up,

What is your connection with Cyprus?

My dad is Cypriot and my mum is Greek. So I’m half Cypriot and half Greek, which is perfect!

Would you like to send a message to Greek and Cypriot people?

I adore you and I will do everyting I can to make you proud. Cyprus, I love you!

Editorial: From Stefania, to Amanda and now to Silia!

What is it that connects the three young singers, both of whom were lucky enough at a very young age to represent Greece and Cyprus in the Eurovision contest? Apart from the fact that all three of them are proud children of the Greek and Cypriot diaspora, they were Eurovisionfun’s suggestions and won the relevant poll of our readers!


It all started with Stefania in May 2019. A few days after the end of Eurovision, we wrote about a then unknown Stefania who we thought was an ideal choice to represent Greece in next year’s contest, which would be held in the Netherlands, her country of residence.

By a wide margin Stefania emerged as the winner of our poll, and a few months later, after submitting her proposal to ERT, she was chosen to represent the country at Eurovision 2020. The contest was cancelled due to COVID-19, but Stefania represented us in 2021, bringing Greece in the top 10 after eight years, managing to be in 10th place in both the televoting and the juries, something that Greece achieved for the first time!


The success continued in 2022. Early on and again through our website we suggested Amanda as an artist who could deservedly succeed Stefania on the stage of the contest.

Although Amanda was an outsider, since everyone thought it was Good Job Nicky’s turn, the song she submitted to ERT was admittedly the one that rightly had to represent Greece in Turin.

Amanda’s special voice and her atmospheric song lifted the nation even higher at Eurovision 2022, bringing Greece to eighth place and listening to “Greece 12 points” six times in total!

Black 2023

Even though everything seemed ideal for 2023 and a third top 10 series in the making was very likely, some people in ERT’s headquarters had a contrary opinion, wanting to write on the back of their shoes the opinion of the public committee, the comments of the fans on social media, but also common sense, they decided to send a completely inexperienced artist, who had no TV or live experience, with a team that turned out to be completely unfit to carry out this project.

For the record, the winner of our proposal poll was Melissa Mantzoukis, who was also the winner of the ERT audience committee vote, by a huge margin …


From where Stefania and Amanda left off, Silia Kapsis is invited to continue the tradition, just for Cyprus this time. Silia was one of our suggestions this summer, winning the corresponding poll of our readers, with a percentage of over 35%!

We may have suggested her for the Greek representation, but in our article since then, we wrote that her father’s Cypriot origin could put her on the radar of RIK as well, which as you saw happened.

We hope that an additional common element that will connect Silia with Stefania and Amanda from next May, will be that she will have the same good fortune in terms of ranking, scoring a top 10 for Cyprus.

Watch our video below:

Will Silia continue the successful tradition? Tell us in the comments below!
