EUROVISION ALL STARS 2: THE 90’s – CYPRUS

For much of the 90’s, Cyprus could only muster results consisting of only 1’s and 9’s. The country recorded a few 9’s, a few 11’s, and even a 19, but the result they really wanted using these numbers – that would be a “1”! – never came their way. And Cyprus is still waiting…

Cyprus enjoyed an impressive Eurovision debut in 1981 with a 6th place, bettering that in its second year with a 5th place. In the two decades that followed, the 5thplaces continued (one in 1997 and another in 2004), but that was as high as it went for them. Of course, that was until Eleni Foureira came along in 2018 with a fiery runner-up performance that will forever be burnt into our memories.

As another one of the handful of countries to have 10 Eurovision entries during the 90’s, we have 10 performances up for the All Stars 2 vote:
