Earlier today, the show “Euphoria” (broadcast in RIK) supplied juicy news about Cyprus participation at Eurovision 2022. The news became public, relying on Eurovision Fun reports.
One of the guests on the show was Andreas Anastasiou, the head of the press in the Cypriot delegation.
The host of the show, Melina Karageorgiou, asked what we can expect from Cyprus in the upcoming Eurovision.
Andreas Anastasiou said Cyprus has many good talents to suggest. His wishful thinking is to see a Cypriot artist or at least Cypriot writer / composer representing the island on the biggest stage in Europe.
Thereafter, he mentioned that it will happen in 2022. Anastasiou also hinted that Cypriot fans will be very proud of their upcoming representative.
Therefore, we can expect that a Cypriot singer or Cypriot writer will be behind Cyprus entry for Eurovision 2022.

Cyprus at Eurovision
The last time Cyprus was represented by a Cypriot representative was in Eurovision 2017.
Back then, the Armenian – Cypriot singer Hovig represented the country with the song “Gravity“.
The criticism among Eurovision fans was that the country hasn’t given a chance to their local music industry.
In 2018, Eleni Foureira represented the country. She is a Greek – Albanian singer.
In 2019, Tamta represented the country. She is a Greek – Georgian singer.
In 2020, Sandro Nicolas should have represented the country in Eurovision. He is a German – American singer.
In 2021, Elena Tsagrinou represented the country. She is a Greek singer.
Who will carry the Cypriot flag at Eurovision 2022?
Will we see any returning artists?
In 2021, Cyprus was represented by Elena Tsagrinou. She finished in 16th place in the grand final with the song “El Diablo“:
