Cyprus: “Maybe it was the best rehearsal we ever had!”

Immediately after the end of the first rehearsal of Silia Kapsis, Eurovisionfun contacted both the Cypriot delegation and the artistic team to inform you about their impression.

Silia and the entire team were amazing

Despite the various issues that existed in the video of the stand-in-rehearsal received by CyBC a week ago, this time everything was perfect.

The organizers took into account all the comments of the Cypriot delegation and Silia’s first rehearsal went impeccable.

The entire stage concept prepared by the artistic team was 100% rendered on stage. The leds and lighting move to the rhythm of the choreography and play a very important role in Liar’s stage appearance. Everything was well tuned, and vocally Silia was fantastic! The four dancers, with their energy and youthfulness, make Liar one of the freshest stage entries of this year’s competition.

There is almost nothing to be corrected

In our question if there was anything they could fix for the second rehearsal, the answer was that there are only very little things.

“Maybe it was the best rehearsal we ever had!”

The next rehearsal of Cyprus is on Wednesday, 1/5 at 12.30 CET. Stay tuned for the TikTok video, but also for a short video to publicized by CyBC!

Eurovision 2024: Cyprus’ First Rehearsal!

The moment all eurofans have been waiting for is finally here! The first rehearsals of Eurovision 2024 have started! The first artist to set foot on the Eurovision stage of Malmö Arena is Silia Kapsis from Cyprus, with her energetic bop Liar!

Who is Silia Kapsis?

Despite only being 17 years old, Silia Kapsis is already a succesful artist in Australia where she resides, as she has her own TV show in Nickelodeon Australia!

She sings and dances amazingly, and as she revealed to Eurovisionfun her big childhood dream was to perform on the Eurovision stage.

Silia is a singer of Cypriot and Greek descent, born in Sydney, Australia, on December 5, 2006 to the Cypriot singer Giorgos Kapsis and the Greek lawyer and former dancer Despina Saivanidis. She has been performing since the age of 4 and has had extensive training with elite artists at the top of their respective fields.

She has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Bobby McCloughan Creative Arts Award (130 Anniversary Award) at Claremont College, the St Vincent’s College Madame Christian Scholarship for Singing and most recently, she was the recipient of the Village Nation Performing Arts College Scholarship for All – Round Triple Threat Performer.

She composed her first single “Who Am I?” at the age of 12, but it was released later, only in 2022. Since then she has released three more singles – “No Boys Allowed”, in March 2023, “Disco Dancer”, in May 2023, and “Night Out”, in November 2023.

The Rehearsal

Silia is only 17, but she’s owning this stage like performing in a huge arena is a walk in the park. The gold lamé costume from the official video has been replaced with trousers and a crop top in sparkly white, with four male backing dancers in cargo pants and baggy white t-shirts. No stage props, but lots of swirly green and red graphics on the LED backdrop and floor. The LED graphics look like watery swirls and sine waves and they’re all choreographed to the beat of the music.

Fans of Silia’s dancing will be happy to hear that this performance has a high energy routine and a huge dance break before the bridge into the final chorus – just the kind of upbeat number we need to get the party started on May 7th. Also should mention that the dancers pull their shirts off in the final chorus.
