Outsourcing Eurovision Contestants!

Yes, Cyprus will be represented by a lead singer from Wales, a band lined-up with performers from all over Europe, and one or two Cypriot artists.

The two Cypriot song writers, Nasos Lambrianides and Melis Konstantinou, preferred to search the internet for talent to represent our lovely little island in the notorious pop competition. They found young talent in Newport and went on to create Jon Lilygreen & the Islanders in order to represent us.

What do you think? Has the time come for us to just end Eurovision or is the ‘outsourcing’ a good thing?
