The 2017 season well and truly started as Cyprus became the first country to announce their singer for the contest next May in Kyiv!

27 year old Hovig will represent Cyprus, with a song composed by Swedish Eurovision veteran Thomas G:son, who composed many Eurovision favorites such as Euphoria (Sweden 2012), Quédate conmigo (Spain 2012), and even Cyprus’ latest Eurovision song, Alter ego from 2016.

Hovig is well known to Cypriot Eurovision fans, trying out in the 2010 and 2015 national selections.

What do you think of Hovig? Is he a good choice for Cyprus? Will 2017 bring Cyrpus their first-ever win?
