Cyprus will be represented by Despina Olympiou and the song “An me thimase” this year. Basically, it’s what Spain sent last year.
This is a ridiculously safe choice from Cyprus. I am no fan of dated ballads anyway, but “An me thimase” smells particularly musty to me. It’s so predictable, I can already foresee how it’s going to do at Eurovision: high scores from the juries and no support from the public.
Of course, strong jury support got Pastora Soler and “Quédate Conmigo” a top 10 finish, but I think “An me thimase” will be very lucky to do that well. Definite bathroom break song.
