Rumours have been abound for the Cyprus Eurovision selection for 2018. This today can all be put to bed as it was revealed that Eleni Foureira will go to bat for Cyprus in Lisbon in May.
Opting for an internal selection, Cypriot broadcaster RiK initially fuelled whispers that the 2005 Eurovision winner Elena Paparizou was poised to return to the contest this time for Cyprus. These talks seemed to have broke down last month when Elena herself denied the claims. Fresh rumours this time of another Greek singer Eleni Foureira surfaced and these were today confirmed.
Eleni will sing the song ‘Fuego’ at Eurovision 2018. The song has been penned by Alex P, the mastermind behind other Eurovision hits such as Ivi Adamou’s 2012 song for Cyprus ‘La La Love’, the 2007 Greek entry for Sarbel ‘Yassou Maria’ and Azeri top three song ‘Always’ by Aysel and Arash.
