In the show of OPEN TV – Just The 2 Of US, Eleni Foureira was recently invited, making another explosive appearance. Eleni Foureira was asked about the scenarios that wanted her to accept a proposal from RIK this year in order to represent Cyprus once again in the contest.
Eleni Foureira once again confirmed these rumors, but said that it was too early to be in our favorite song contest again. It is interesting, however, that she kept open the possibility to be back in the future.
I love Cyprus very much, but it was too early to go to Eurovision again!
We remind you that Eleni Foureira and her record company PANIK Records, had responded to the honorary proposal of RIK, that although she would like to be in the contest again, she would prefer to do it in better conditions and not in 2021 with the fear of the pandemic .

Stay tuned to Eurovision Fun for all the news regarding the Cypriot entry in Eurovision 2021!
In its favorite month in November, CYBC seems to be very close to the announcement of its representative in Eurovision 2021.
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.
Most likely, at the meeting of the Board of Directors of CYBC tonight, there will be approval, so that very soon we have the official announcements.
What about the song?
RIK has also come up with the song, managing to have as composer of this year’s entry, a really very big name that will cause a sensation in its announcement.
Once again, the CYBC team that deals with the contest, proves its dedication and love to the Eurovision project, hoping that in Eurovision 2021, the participation of Cyprus will cause a sensation and will leave the best impressions!
We remind you that CYBC has already announced as artistic director of its participation in Eurovision 2021, the Austrian, Marvin Dietmann, who was responsible for the stage presentation of both the winning song of Austria in Eurovision 2014 with Conchita Wurst, but also the winning entry in the juries voting, of Austria in Eurovision 2018 with Cesár Sampson.
Respecting that the collaboration has not been formally completed yet, but also the fact that CYBC has not officially announced anything, we will not publish the name of the artist or the composer, wishing at the same time good luck in Cyprus!
Stay tuned to Eurovision Fun for all the developments regarding the Cypriot participation in Eurovision 2021!
Kalomira gave an interview to OK magazine and to the journalist Giannis Poulopoulos. Shortly after returning from the Caribbean, where she celebrated 10 years of marriage with her husband, Kalomira clarifies in the interview if she has really discussed the possibility of Eurovision 2021 with RIK, she describes the song with which she would like to participate again in the contest, while revealing whether she has already heard a candidate song.
One of the people rumored to represent Cyprus at Eurovision 2021 is Kalomira. Kalomira who is still popular in Greece and Cyprus, admitted some weeks ago in an interview on a Belgian website, that for the first time she is seriously considering returning to the contest, having already had some discussions with RIK.
For the first time since that interview, Kalomira opens her papers more and gives some more important details.
Initially, she admits once again that has discussed with RIK the possibility of representing Cyprus in Eurovision 2021 and describes the song with which she would like to do it:
If I were to go to Eurovision again, I would like to have a strong dance track that would allow me to dance and have fun on stage.
Kalomira is then asked, if she has had heard any songs for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest:
No. So far I have not heard any song.
Finally, the journalist asks her if she is concerned about the fact that Eurovision 2021 can be held without an audience and with completely new data, different from what we are used to, due to the pandemic.
I love Eurovision very much and I believe that by May 2021 there is room to prepare better than in 2020. I am sure that Eurovision 2021 will be a success.
We remind you that according to what is reported in the Cypriot media, Kalomira is the favorite at the moment to represent the island in Eurovision 2021, without of course excluding the cases of Katerina Stikoudi, Irini Papadopoulou, Elias Koza or some other surprise name!
Stay tuned to Eurovision Fun for all the news concerning the Cypriot entry in Eurovision 2021!
According to what was broadcast a while ago on the noon show of Omega TV in Cyprus, Ela Na Deis, the favorite now to represent Cyprus in Eurovision 2021 is Kalomira. Read more
This morning, through the show Eftychite in Open TV, the journalist Giannis Poulopoulos, gave an answer to the question that tormented the fans of the Eurovision Song Contest the previous days.
According to information from the record company Panik Records, Eleni Foureira will not represent Cyprus in Eurovision 2021.
The reasons for her refusal, according to the journalist, are not that she does not want to be back on the music scene of the contest, but she would like to do it when the conditions with the coronavirus are better and Eurovision can be done normally in the way we all know.
Finally, both he and Nikos Georgiadis, a journalist and friend of Kalomira, confirmed that the latter is in discussions for the representation of the island of Aphrodite in Eurovision 2021. The same applies to Elias Koza.
Will Kalomira, Elias Kozas or someone else represent Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021?
In the morning show of Open TV, journalist Giannis Poulopoulos revealed two more names of artists who are in talks with RIK, in order to represent Cyprus in Eurovision 2021. They are Kalomira and Elias Koza, both former representatives of Greece in the competitio. .
Kalomira is thinking about it
According to what was reported, RIK is in negotiations with Kalomira to represent the country in Rotterdam. In an interview given by Kalomira to a German media and broadcasted on the show, Kalomira seems quite positive in taking this step, compared to previous years.
This year, Stefania, whom I adore, will represent Greece; Cyprus is something I am looking at, who knows, i may represent Cyprus. It’s something I’m talking about, but it may not happen. This time I am open, I want to leave the house, I am closed for two years. There is a possibility that you will see me at Eurovision 2021.
Nikos Georgiadis, who is on the show’s panel and is a friend of Kalomira, explained that the difference this year for Kalomira compared to previous years, is that schools in the US are done remotely and so she can move with her family for the needs of the contest. This will be Kalomira’s second participation in the Eurovision Song Contest, if the discussions finally succeed, after the third place she won in 2008, with My Secret Combination.
Elias Kozas as a solo artist
Another artist who is in contact with RIK is Elias Kozas, who is discussing returning to the competition as a solo artist and without his band, Koza Mostra. Elias together with his band and Agathonas in 2013 brought Greece for the last time in the top 10 of the final score, with the song of Alcohol Is Free.
We remind you that this week we are expecting Alex Papaconstantinou’s meeting with Eleni Foureira, in order to clarify the landscape regarding the possibility of her returning to the competition. As we have written in our previous articles, RIK has many valuable options and shows that it is not in a hurry to end up.
According to what TVNEA reports in today’s article, Alex Papaconstantinou will be the composer of the Cypriot entry in Eurovision 2021. Next week he will be in Athens, where he will have a meeting with PANIK and Eleni Foureira to discuss the official RIK proposal to the popular singer. Everything suggests that this meeting will be the catalyst for the final answer of Eleni Foureira on the Cypriot public broadcaster.
Based on what Maria Pratsi reports to TVNEA, we are extracting two new important information. First, the rumors of the previous days are confirmed that Alex Papaconstantinou will be the creator of the Cypriot song (for the fourth time). Secondly, Alex will travel to Athens next week to meet with the people of PANIK, but also Eleni Foureira herself, to discuss the song he has to suggest to them. This trip will also judge Eleni Foureira’s response to RIK.
As we mentioned in our previous article, the flawless collaboration that Eleni Foureira had with both RIK and Alex Papaconstantinou, is one of the main weapons that the people of the Cypriot public broadcaster have, in order to “convince” the former, to say the big yes.
If of course all the above is true, then we will soon know the answer of Eleni Foureira and we will know if we will see her again in 2021 on the Eurovision stage!
Stay tuned to Eurovision Fun for all the developments regarding the Cypriot entry in Eurovision 2021!
