Yianna Terzi represented the country this year with the song ‘Oniro Mou’. Despite being well received, the song failed to qualify to the final, making it the second time in the competition’s history that the country failed to make it to the final.

I'm Dimitris, from Cyprus. Eurovision has been a big part of my life for so long now. My first memories of the contest go back to 2005, which was a special year as Greece had won with Helena Paparizou. But 2009 was truly the first year I became a die-hard Eurofan, which is why that year holds a special place in my heart.
