She has also been the brains behind Eurovision staging for Loreen (Sweden, 2012), Nina Sublatti (Georgia, 2015), Donny Montell (Lithuania, 2016), Minus One (Cyprus, 2016), Iveta Mukuchyan (Armenia, 2016),Isaiah Firebrace (Australia, 2017), Artsvik (Armenia, 2017), Tamara Gachechiladze (Georgia, 2017), Kristian Kostov (Bulgaria, 2017), Equinox (Bulgaria, 2018), Jessica Mauboy (Australia, 2018) and of course Eleni Foureira (Cyprus, 2018).
The broadcaster have also reveal that the song’s title will be ‘Replay’. All that remains is for them to reveal the artist and debut the song. Will this happen this side of Christmas or will we have to wait to the New Year?
