After six weeks of audition shows, and a Eurochallenge first round, tonight the 10 songs that had made it through to the second Eurochallenge show in Cyprus were reduced down to just six songs to progress to the final on Sunday the 1st of February.
Last week the 20 songs that reached the first Eurochallenge show, were reduced down to the 10 songs that competed in tonight's second Eurochallenge show. The jury in the Eurochallenge shows comprise six judges; They are former Cypriot entrants, Elena Patroklou (1991) , Alex Panayi (1995 and 2000) and Despina Olympiou (2013), along with Tasos Trifonos, Christer Björkman (Eurovision Song Contest 2013 Producer and Sweden's Head of Delegaton) and Dimitris Kontopoulos (composer of several Eurovision Song Contest entries).
Tonight, the six jurors had workshops with the ten artists and their songs. They worked with the singers on vocal workshops, interview workshops and stage performance workshops. They also gave advice to the singers before their performance on stage
