Nicosia, Cyprus -

The song La La Love sung by Ivi Adamou will represent Cyprus in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku. The song was chosen tonight in a special programme called A Song For Ivi by a 50/50 combination of jury and televoting.

Three songs were in contention in the final, all sung by 18 year old Ivi Aadamou, who had been chosen as the artist to represent the country in August 2011.

In the 90 minute show broadcast this evening from Nicosia, presented by Christos Grigoriadis, the seven member jury, along with the televoting public decided that La La Love composed by Alex Papaconstantinou, Bjorn Djupström, Alexandra Zakka & Viktor Svensson should be the Cypriot entry in Europe's Favourite Tv Show, receiving the top marks from both.

The other two songs that Ivi Adamou performed were; (Composers names in brackets)

Call The Police (Lene Dissing, Jakob Glæsner & Mikko Tamminen)

You Don't Belong Here (Niklas Jarl, Alexander Schold & Sharon Vaugh)

Tonight's programme also included a behind-the-scenes look at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, held in Düsseldorf, when Christos Mylordou sang San Aggelos S'Agapisa for Cyprus, as well as former Cypriot entrants, Evridiki and Elena Patroclou.

Ivi Adamou will perform La La Love in the second half of the First Semi-Final to be held in Baku on 22nd of May, 2012.

    this song is really for summer nights and make you dance. But i dont think it is good enough to be a winner though. and plus i dont stop myself looking at her mouth while listening! she should improve her face expression she looks absurd rather than being charming and her effort to smile doesnt seem natural.but good luck anyway. report to the moderator
