Cypriot Australian Andrew Lambrou to represent Cyprus at Eurovision 2023

·

Cypriot Australian, Andrew Lambrou, will be representing Cyprus at Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool, the United Kingdom.

The news was announced by the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation (CyPB) on Monday night (AEDT) as part of a collaboration between itself, Panik Records of Greece and City Pop Records of Australia.

Lambrou responded to the news on Instagram and said he was “so excited” to be representing Cyprus at the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest.

“I’m so thrilled to go on this journey, let’s do this!!” the Sydney-based singer added.

Lambrou is no stranger to the song contest, having entered Eurovision – Australia Decides earlier this year with the electro-banger Electrify.

Written by Lambrou, as well as Joseph, Nick and Timm de la Hoyde, the song featured English and Spanish lyrics.

At the time, Lambrou said he chose to make Electrify a bilingual entry because he loves “singing in different languages.”

No song details have been released as yet for Lambrou’s appearance at Eurovision 2023.

Cyprus entered the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 1981. As of 2022, Cyprus holds the unenviable record for the most times participating in the competition without winning.

The best placing for the country came in 2018 when Eleni Foureira finished second with her epic banger Fuego.
