Cyprus 2024: Silia Kapsis' song is out now – Listen to "Liar"

After months of anticipation, the song Silia Kapsis will perform at Eurovision 2024 is out now and is titled "Liar"

The wait is now over! After being announced as the Cyprus representative back in September, Silia Kapsis now has officially released her Eurovision 2024 song.

Rumors at the start of the season indicated that Cypriot broadcaster, CyBC, would be holding a national selection contest to choose their representative. CyBC ultimately decided to keep up what they'd been doing the past few seasons and internally select Silia Kapsis for Eurovision 2024.

All said and done, we now know she'll be taking the Eurovision stage in Malmö with "Liar."
