Το συγκρότημα που εκπροσωπεί την Κύπρο φέτος στη Eurovision, είχαν την χαρά να υποδεχτούν στο Ελληνικό Ραδιόφωνο του Λονδίνου LGR 103.3 FM και να τους γνωρίσουμε όλοι απο κοντά.
Οι Minus One, βρέθηκαν ζωντανά στο στούντιο και μίλησαν για τις προετοιμασίες, τα στοιχήματα που τους παίζουν ψηλά, αλλά και γενικά το τι ετοιμάζουν για την Στοκχόλμη και πως θα παρουσιαστεί το τραγούδι ‘Alter Ego‘, ζωντανά.
Το συγκρότημα αποτελείται από τους Francois Micheletto (τραγούδι), Χάρη Πάρη (κιθάρα), Κωνσταντίνο Αμερικάνο (κιθάρα), Αντώνη Λοϊζίδη (μπάσο) και Χριστόφορο Ιωαννίδη (Chris J) στα ντραμς.
Κεφάτοι, ευγενικοί και με πολύ ενέργεια και χιούμορ έδωσαν στην παρόικια μια γεύση, για ποιο λόγο επέλεξαν αυτο το up-tempo κομμάτι και για ποιο λόγο ελπίζουνε η επόμενη Γιουροβίζιον να γίνει στη Λευκωσία.
“Έχουμε όρεξη και χαρά και αυτό θα βγάλουμε προς τα έξω.
Το τραγούδι αρεσει πολυ στη νεολαία και εμείς εισπράτουμε πολυ ενέργεια.”
Το τραγούδι διαγωνίζεται μαζί με το Ελληνικό στον πρώτο ημιτελικό στις 10 Μαΐου.
Ο τελικός που είμαστε πολυ θετική οτι θα εχει την Κύπρο μεσα γίνεται το Σαββατο 14 Μαΐου.
Καλη επιτύχια στους Minus One και στην Κύπρο μας.

David Gest, the former husband of Liza Minnelli, has been found dead in a London hotel aged 62. The star, who was found dead at the Four Seasons hotel in Canary Wharf, is believed to have been recently suffering from pneumonia and high blood pressure, with one friend claiming he was disorientated from the drugs.
A source told The Mirror: “He seemed strung out and went off the radar at times. He was taking some really strong medication because he was suffering from nasty chest problems that just wouldn’t go away.”
The police have since confirmed they are treating the incident as ‘not suspicious’.
The 62-year-old married actress Liza Minnelli in March 2002, but they separated roughly 18 months later in 2003. He went on to sue her for $10 million claiming she had been physically abusive during their marriage. Liza denied the charges and the case was eventually dismissed. He was also known for being a close friend of the late Michael Jackson.
A statement was released on Tuesday afternoon confirming the sad news of the showbiz icon’s death.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Police were called at 10.17 on Tuesday 12 April to the Four Seasons hotel, in Westferry Circus to reports of an unexplained death of a man in his 60s”.
Close friend Imad Handi also made a statement: “It is with great sadness that I can confirm that David Gest has died today.” Mr Handi added: “David was truly larger than life. He was not just a huge talent and a dear friend but a showbiz icon.”
David guest was also know for appearing on I’m A Celebrity and Celebrity Big Brother.

Those who imply that due to the elections in May there is supposedly a slowdown at the Cyprus talks, they do so to cover up their positions which strongly contradict the principles of law, President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades has stressed.
The President was invited on Friday to comment on statements made by Turkish President Tayip Erdogan that the Cyprus negotiations will resume in May and will be accelerated with the aim to reach a solution by the end of the year, implying that until the parliamentary elections in Cyprus in May there will be no developments at the Cyprus talks.
President Anastasiades replied that this will not happen due to the Greek Cypriot stance, and stressed that `those who invoke that due to the elections there is supposedly a slowdown, they do so to cover up their positions which strongly contradict the principles of law. “
The President was also asked about Cyprus` exit from its economic adjustment programme, that officially ended yesterday.
It is indeed a success, he said, but added that but there are no grounds for complacency and we must learn from the mistakes of the past.
In statements on the sidelines of the doxology on the occasion of the anniversary of the anti-colonial liberation struggle of 1955-1959, the President said that today we pay respect to those who fought for freedom and `allowed us, even if the ultimate goal was not achieved, to create a country with protection of human rights and with an internationally strong presence`.
To fully repay this debt, he pointed out, we have to restore the unity of our state, liberate ourselves from the Turkish occupation and create circumstances of a truly European state, with respect to the human rights of all its inhabitants.
The Republic of Cyprus, an EU member state since 2004, is divided by Turkish troops since the Turkish invasion in 1974. UN led talks, aiming at reunifying the island under a federal political system, resumed in May 2015. The next meetings between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus President Anastasiades and T/c leader Mustafa Akinci have been scheduled for April 18 and 25 and for May 9, 2016. The parliamentary elections in Cyprus will take place on the 22 May 2016.
Turkey still occupies 37% of Cyprus` territory and refuses to withdraw its troops despite numerous resolutions and decisions by international organisations and Courts.
