ESC 2019: Time Travel Part 1

We are almost 2 months after Eurovision’s Grand Final. In this series of posts, we are going to travel through time and remind you some of this year’s best moments. All the events of Eurovision since the first artist announcement in late November until the Netherlands win in May.

Our first trip will be to the second artist announcement. Cyprus, the Mediterranean island with a long history in the contest (36 contests) made an early decision about the artist. Tamta was revealed as the 2019 representative of the island on 21st of December. Tamta’s fans had one more reason to celebrate on Christmas.

Her song was already known that would be by Alex P. – the Greek-Swedish artist who composed Fuego in 2018. Tamta is an established artist in Cyprus but in Georgia and Greece too. She actually tried to represent Greece a decade ago in 2007 but failed to win the national final.

Now in the aftermath of the contest, we know that Tamta did an excellent job with her uptempo song Replay. Her performance didn’t manage to do as well as Eleni Foureira did the previous year. She finished 13th in the final.

You can find more information about Tamta here.
