Participant: One Song: Gimme your love Writer(s): George Theofanous Composer(s): George Theofanous
The Cypriot band called ONE is representing the small island in the eastern Mediterranean Sea at the Eurovision Song Contest. ONE exists sind 1999 and it is the first boygroup in Cyprus and Greece.
The delegation from Cyprus arrived already on Friday and was the first of all in Tallinn. Cyprus is also the first country on stage. The name of the group is also ONE! To fulfill the continuety they must be number one on Saturday night.
The chances are relatively high this year to win the contest. The song is a good mixture of dancefloor and pop and is very suitable for opening the contest. And it is also in the top of the charts in Cyprus and Greece. The single-CD is already abvailable in 9 countries included South Africa!
ONE consists of: Constantinos - who already represented Cyprus in 1996 in Oslo with "Monogiamas" and reached a good position. Filippou - he was a background singer in 1995 and supported Alexander Panayi with "Sti Fotia" and got 9th. Panos, Arguyis and Dmitris will have their debut on an international stage.
On Saturday there will be more than 160 million tv-spectators watching the contest. So the question is, will they all remember the first song after listenting to 24 songs? They are all unique and nobody will forget them, because of their brilliant presentation on stage.
