A female singer in Eurovision 2021

After the confirmation in June that Sandro will not represent Cyprus in the next contest and that CYBC will look for a new artist, a lot was written, many rumors were circulated (with some of them being valid and some not), but with the Cypriot public broadcaster to remain silent, working methodically for the best possible entry in Eurovision 2021.

According to our reliable information and as you first read through Eurovision Fun, there are advanced discussions with an artist, from PANIK Records, in order to lift the weight of the representation of Cyprus in May in Rotterdam.

Although her name has been heard in the past among those who could represent either Cyprus or Greece in Eurovision, she was not one of the names that were widely rumored recently, to claim the ticket of Aphordite’s island in Eurovision 2021.

She is a fresh face of the music industry and is one of the youngest rising singers of the pop scene and without a doubt she can stand worthy on the stage of Eurovision, since apart from a very good voice she also has an impressive presence.
