Silia Kapsis to sing for Cyprus at Eurovision 2024

The Cypriot broadcaster has internally selected Silia Kapsis to sing for the country in Malmö in next year's Eurovision Song Contest. The song will be released at a later date

Rumors had it that Cyprus was going back to a national selection for their next year's Eurovision artist. Well, not this time around.

CyBC, the Cypriot broadcaster, has internally picked Silia Kapsis for the task. The news has just been confirmed through their social media channels, and brings the number of confirmed acts for Eurovision 2024 to two following Belgium's Mustii.

Silia Kapsis – "Disco Dancer" (not her Eurovision song)

Silia's song for Eurovision will be released at a later stage. It is composed by the well-known Eurovision veteran Dimitris Kontopoulos (Δημήτρης Κοντόπουλος), who has several Eurovision hits on his CV, such as Scream (Russia 2019), You Are the Only One (Russia 2016) and Hold Me (Azerbaijan 2013).
