All the same, the station wants them both. So which of those two will take a seat in the jury of The Masked Singer, which is a huge success in all the countries it has been broadcast ?

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.

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!

Editorial: How likely is it to see Eleni Foureira at Eurovision 2021?

The fact that Eleni Foureira continues to be a Eurovision legend, two years after the second place and her impressive appearance with Fuego, is of course not news. It is not news that this year her name is involved with Eurovision. But what is a matter of discussion is the fact that for 2021 he accepted an official proposal from RIK, in order to represent Cyprus for the second time in the contest, as revealed in the morning show of STAR TV.

Eleni Foureira, you Superstar!

Eleni Foureira, if the term could be allowed to me, is the winner of second places in the Eurovision Song Contest history, at least for the last ten years. She may not have achieved the coveted victory in 2018 in Lisbon, but since then her career has skyrocketed, with many appearances abroad, significant success in other countries (such as Spain), she appeared in 2019 in the interval act, while she tried to do and some first steps on the other side of the Atlantic, with important collaborations there as well.

It is logical and expected, that such an artist is an immediate priority in the sights of the Cypriot public broadcaster, which if we consider the STAR report valid, addressed an official proposal to her and her record company, in order to re-lift her weight. of Cyprus in the competition.

How easy it is for Eleni Foureira to say YES

Based on what was heard in the report by Elisavet Kyritsi, Eleni Foureira and her record company are expecting from RIK the songs they have to suggest for the contest, in order to give their final answer. But the answer of Eleni Foureira and PANIK will not depend only on this.

An artist of the range of Eleni Foureira, who very recently proved her worth at Eurovision and made literally all of Europe talk about her, has to think and weigh much more in order to say YES for the second time, than how good will be the song they will suggest to her.

Of course, the financial data, the program and her obligations, her willingness to re-enter such a demanding project, but also the course of the pandemic will play a role. Why do we mention this? Will Eleni Foureira really want to burn a second participation in the contest, in a year that so far no one knows if Eurovision will be held with the public, journalists and all these elements that make it unique?  She and her record label will take into account that as well.

RIK has proven its worth

On the other hand, RIK and the team that deals with the Eurovision Song Contest has proved that they have a way of convincing big names, such as Eleni Foureira or Tamta in 2019. Eleni Foureira maintains perfect relations with RIK and completely trusts its people, something that makes her feel safe and confident about a possible new collaboration.

In addition, RIK in recent years has made a strong presence in the Eurovision events, with careful and professional entries and live appearances that always leave history. All this would be tempting to any artist, even in cases like Eleni Foureira.

PANIK and Eurovision 2021

This is where the PANIK parameter comes in. Through our website, you read that PANIK intends to nominate artists of Cypriot origin to RIK for Eurovision 2021. So this exclusive statement made by PANIK is absolutely true, but the case of Eleni Foureira is something special and will obviously have priority if it is decided that the conditions are right for her to return to the contest.

So a positive answer from Eleni Foureira and PANIK may seem quite unlikely, but history has shown that RIK knows how to turn the tables. If again the answer that RIK will receive is negative, then it will turn to the other alternatives, which as you have understood are enough.

What is certain is that in the coming months there will be plenty of background and reporting, whether Eleni Foureira or some other artist is finally chosen!

Cyprus: RIK made a proposal to Eleni Foureira for Eurovision 2021!

According to what was mentioned in today’s morning show of STAR, RIK has made an official proposal to Eleni Foureira, in order to represent the country for the second time in the contest.

In fact, this is the first official proposal that RIK addresses to an artist for Eurovision 2021 and it becomes known. It was reported on the show that Eleni Foureira has not yet responded and is in discussions with her record label.

From our side, what we officially know from PANIK, the record label to which Eleni Foureira also belongs, is that their intention is to propose only artists of Cypriot origin, since, as they characteristically told us, there is no big name from its potential that interested in participating in the upcoming contest.

Certainly a positive answer from Eleni Foureira would change any existing data, since it would be a priority for RIK, but also for PANIK.
