So this year, KAN internally selected Eden Alene, who won the national final last year. It’s often been the case this decade that KAN selects an artist either internally or through an idol-like contest and then picks a song for them; however last year they had a national final to pick Eden’s song so it makes sense they would do it again.
This year, nine demo songs, often sung by the songwriters themselves, were picked up by the broadcaster and posted online. An online voting picked two and then a third one was selected through a jury wildcard. The three songs are: “La La Love”, “Set Me Free” and “Ue La La”. Yes, out of all combination in the English language, not to mention all the other languages in the world, they came up with the exact same title as Cyprus 2012. Imagine that!
Then Eden Alene recorded a revamped version of each one. They were presented on January 19th. On that date, online voting was reopen as well and only closed today, where a small NF was hosted to present the songs and reveal the results of online voting. It was revealed that “Set Me Free” won!
What do you think of this entry? What are its chances in Rotterdam?
