For the silence that prevails this year in Aphrodite’s island regarding the next entry of RIK in Eurovision 2022 we have written in our previous articles. For this reason and with great caution we convey the latest information that has reached our ears, since nothing is yet considered certain. Read more
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 .
Would you like to see Eleni Foureira again in the Eurovision Song Contest?
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!

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!
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!

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.
On the Omega TV station and on the show Ela Na Deis, Alexandros Taramountas, gave more information about the process that RIK will follow in order to select its artist for Eurovision 2021.
Stikoudi, Papadopoulou or someone else?
The report of the show confirmed what was said this morning at Open TV, but shedding much more detail. Initially, what everyone agrees on is that Katerina Stikoudi and Irini Papadopoulou are among the favorite names, but they are not the only ones.
Sources from RIK confirmed to Alexandros Taramountas that so far RIK has not spoken to any artist, nor obviously to Stikoudi and Papadopoulou. What the reports of the two shows also agree on is that the song that will represent Cyprus at Eurovision 2021 will be a dance track and most possible sung by a female singer.
RIK will suggest songs on the record labels
However, the most important information that was added to the already existing puzzle is that RIK, in the negotiations that it will carry out with the record companies, will suggest songs that it already has in its possession, looking for the artist that will fit better, a method that used in 2018-2019. All of the above, of course, based on what was heard on the show Ela Na Deis and the sources cited by RIK.
Autumn is always a time of developments in RIK for the Eurovision contest and very soon we will surely know more!
