Argyris Nastopoulos - Eurovision 2002

Eurovision 2002

At the end of 2001, national Cypriot broadcaster CyBC requested that they participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2002. They agreed and Theofanous wrote the song "Gimme" especially for the occasion. Backup vocals were performed by Christina Argyri who was part of the stage duo Voice who represented Cyprus in 2000. After finishing in 6th place they became famous in both Cyprus and Greece and landed platinum certifications.

This was Christoforou's second Eurovision performance as already having represented Cyprus in 1996 with the song "Mono Yia Mas".

Christoforou went on to once again represent Cyprus as a solo artist in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 with the song "Ela Ela (Come Baby)".
