Cypriot Australian Silia Kapsis’ performance sees Cyprus qualify for Eurovision final

·

Cyprus has qualified for the Eurovision 2024 final following a breath-taking performance of the song ‘Liar’ by 17-year-old Cypriot Australian Silia Kapsis.

Silia was the first contestant to perform during Tuesday night’s first Eurovision semi-final which is taking place in Malmo, Sweden.

The singer gave a eye-catching performance in an impressive white ensemble curated by Stelios Koudounaris, and was flanked by four male dancers. In the bridge of the song, Silia drew loud applause from the packed crowd thanks to her explosive choreography.

‘Liar’ was written by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Elke Tiel. Kontopoulos has produced 14 Eurovision entries in his career, including two runners-up (‘Shady Lady’ and ‘Hold Me’) and two third-place finishes.

Silia will next perform in the Eurovision Grand Final on May 11. Luxembourg, Ireland, Finland, Croatia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Slovenia, Portugal and Serbia also qualified for the Grand Final. Australia missed out this year.

37-year-old Marina Satti will represent Greece at the second Eurovision semi-final with her song ‘Zari’ for a chance to take out this year’s title.
