CYPRUS – Cyprus’s representative for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, Sandro Nicolas, has been in Cyprus since Saturday, and this afternoon he made his first televised appearance after his official announcement at the Happy Hour show with central presenter Andreas Yortzi.
“It’s my honour to represent Cyprus … It’s fantastic, it’s a dream for me. […] After The Voice (Germany) I had dreams of going to Eurovision, I didn’t know, but I said that was the next step.”
Asked by the presenter if he worries that the Eurovision scene is bigger than the scenes shown so far, he replied that: “Yes it annoys me. (laughs) Yes but for me it will be fun, it will be a great experience, and it is my honour to represent Cyprus. It’s a dream to sing to so many millions. It’s a great time for me.”
His reaction about representing Cyprus in Eurovision: “I was very happy that… I think Elias (Kokotos) told me that Cyprus wants me. I didn’t believe it at all. I was speechless. […] I am very happy to represent Cyprus, people have loved me since the first time I set foot here.”
I’m not a big Eurovision fan, but I watch it. I really liked Helen Foureira and Tamta. I was a big fan of FUEGO, because it was very much played on German radios. […] Helen did a great job, and Tamta. But I wasn’t so much into things about Eurovision, I loved it, but I wasn’t so much into things.
His message to all Cypriots: “I promise to give that I have and I have not. It is my honour to represent the Cyprus flag, and I want to do my best. The most important thing is to stay true to myself and to the world, to be authentic on stage. I’m not good at pretending otherwise. I will definitely say a song that is sincere and will touch the heart of the world. This is the music at the end of the day. But I promise we will break! I promise to be myself and show the world my music and give what I have and don’t have. I will try to sing as if this is my last day on this planet. My appearance will definitely be the most important interpretation of my life. At the end of the day, what matters is to have fun and enjoy it. It is my honour to represent this country and this world.”
