Following the unprecedented success of Eleni Foureira‘s “Fuego” and Ivi Adamou‘s “La La Love”, we could welcome the same again, as the song has been co-written by Alex P, Teddy Skye, Viktor Svensson, Kristoffer “Bonn” Fogelmark and Albin Nedler. Moreover, the staging will be created by Sacha Jean Baptiste. These collaborators went on to create the best-placed entry in Cyprus’ history, so it’s not a surprise for us to see their names again.
The gorgeous singer Tamta Goduadze is a well-known professional in Greece and Cyprus, and became famous after coming second in the first and only series of “Super Idol” in 2003-2004. Since then, she has done a lot for her musical career, dropping numerous singles and competing in the Greek national selection show for Eurovision in 2007 with the song “With Love”, placing third. Now, she will fly Cyprus’ flag to Tel-Aviv.
