Cyprus on Thursday night failed to qualify for the final of the 66th Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, which will be broadcast on Saturday night.

The Cypriot entry sung by Andromache, did not garner enough votes during the second semi-final.

Ireland, Israel and Malta also failed to qualify on Thursday night.

Saturday’s contest is taking place in Turin after Italy won last year.

Andromache represented Cyprus with the song ‘Ela,’, appearing in a giant seashell as a likeness of Aphrodite, wearing a dress by Cypriot designer Stelios Koudounaris.
