Tonight at 20:05 CyBC will air the third episode of Eurovision Song Project, the new national selection formula ahead of the Cypriot comeback to the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. The whole format consists of nine shows, where the first seven episodes are dedicated to the auditions where a local jury will select 20 candidates to participate in the next round called “Eurochallenge”.
