Nicosia, Cyprus -

The Cypriot broadcaster CyBC have revealed the three songs that Ivi Adamou will perform in the national final to be staged on the 25th of January, one of which will go forward to represent the island in the Eurovision Song Contest in May.

It has been known now for several months that 18 year old Ivi Adamou would be the artist to represent Cyprus in Europe's favourite tv show, and today the three short listed songs have been revealed, and are available to listen to online. They are in alphabetical order;

1. Call The Police

2. La La Love

3. You Don't Belong Here

You can listen to the songs on the official Cybc Eurovision website.

The final will held on the 25th of January, and further details on how Cyprus will select their entry are expected to be announced at a press conference to be held on the 9th of January.

Ivi Adamou started her career after appearing in the Greek edition of The X Factor during the 2009 /10 season, finishing in sixth place. Shortly afterwards she released her debut album, from which several singles were released.

In the summer of 2010 she also scored a bit hit with the hip hop group Stavento, and the song San Erthi I Mera. She has also toured extensively in the past two years in both Greece and Cyprus and in August 2011 it was announced that she would be the 30th act to have the honour of representing Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Cyprus have yet to win Europe's favourite tv show, with their best placing of 5th being achieved in the contest in 1982, 1997 and 2004. In 2011 they finsihed in 18th place in the second Semi-Final with the song San Angelos S'Agapisi sung by Christos Mylordos.

    'La La Love' reminds me of Spain's 'Dime' in 2003 - and Ivi is a dead ringer for Beth as well.

    I can't decide between 'La La Love' and 'You Don't Belong Here'.. report to the moderator

    Shame the songs are sung in English. At least they could have some of the native sounds and rhythms of Cyprus rather than being pastiche American pop. report to the moderator

    Choose the best Cyprus! report to the moderator
