Cyprus’ Eurovision 2011 Entry

Cyprus debuted the video of their entry today. Christos Mylordos is a winner of a local talent competition held earlier this year.  At first blush Christos appears to croon out a love ballad. The song is punctuated by some nice harmonies and pleasant Greek/Cypriot orchestration and then… it goes wrong. The Trans-Siberian Orchestra shows up and challenges Christos to a death match. That said, Christos prevails. The entry brings the drama and has a surprising amount of impact. Not a bad effort. On March 6 he’s performing at a Cypriot Eurovision special. Looking forward to seeing how this one looks onstage.

Here’s “San Aggelos S’agapisa”:
