CYPRUS – This morning, Cypriot blog Showtime Cy revealed that CyBC is negotiating with two artists a potential internal selection for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. Searching the story oikotimes.com got the information that those two names could be a former Junior Eurovision participant and a former Eurovision entrant. The two names rumoured in the news desks in Greece and Cyprus are Charis Savva and Loukas Yiorkas. We have no confirmation of the names by an official source though, so read in caution!
At just 7 years old, Charis participated in a television song competition and was selected amongst the top 10 from 100 songs. In 2007, Charis also won 1st place in the Greek Song category at the Larnaka Song Competition. She represented Cyprus in Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2008 with the song “Yioupi Yia”.
Loucas Yiorkas is a Greek-Cypriot singer and model and the winner of the first season of the Greek version of the television talent series The X Factor. In September 2009 he released his first EP album, Mazi, which attained gold status. He studied Biology at the University of Patras. Giorkas represented Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Germany along with Stereo Mike with the song “Watch My Dance”, placing seventh with 120 points.
