Australian-Cypriot Andrew Lambrou will represent Cyprus at the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest

Andrew Lambrou

Andrew Lambrou has been selected as the representative for Cyprus in the 67th Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Liverpool next May.

The singer of Cypriot descent is no stranger to the Contest, having entered Eurovision - Australia Decides earlier this year with the uptempo electro-banger Electrify.

Andrew's 2023 participation is part of a collaboration between CyPB, Panik Records of Greece and City Pop Records of Australia, and while no song details have been revealed as yet, you can sample his style over at Spotify.

Cyprus at the Eurovision Song Contest

Cyprus entered the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 1981. In Greek mythology, the island is the birthplace of the ancient goddess of love, Aphrodite, which could explain their penchant for a passionate uptempo Eurovision entry.

As of 2022, Cyprus holds the unenviable record for the most times participating in the Eurovision Song Contest without winning. The best placing for the country came in 2018 when Eleni Foureira finished second with her iconic banger Fuego.
