Hovig Demirjian, 27, lives in Cyprus and has Armenian roots. He advanced to the live shows in X Factor Greece 2009, finished seventh.
Hovig studied marketing and has also been working in an audit company, but he soon realized that music is his life and immediately started taking lessons in singing, piano and guitar.
He was very restless so he immediately began looking for work on the Cypriot music scene. He has been cooperating with Evridiki (Cyprus 1992, 1994 and 2007), Constantinos Christoforou (Cyprus 2002 and 2005) and Dimitris Korgialas (Composer of Cyprus 2007).
Since Cyprus debuted in Eurovision Song Contest in 1981, the country has not yet managed to win in any of the 33 times the country has participated. Since the introduction of the semi-finals in 2004, Cyprus has qualified for half of the Grand Finals (6 out of 12). Best position is three fifth places (1982, 1997, 2004), and the worst is last place in 1986.
