Kent girl is Cyprus Eurovision star
BBC News – Feb 22, 2004
People in Cyprus have chosen a 16-year-old girl from Kent to represent the island in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Lisa Andreas from Gillingham hopes to be crowned the Eurovision queen at the Istanbul contest in May. The schoolgirl who is studying for her GCSEs was picked by the people of Cyprus last week to be their contender in the glitzy singing contest. Half-Greek Lisa hopes the contest will lead to worldwide singing fame.

Swiss song flops at Eurovision – Feb 22, 2004
“Celebrate!” sung by Basel-based former hairdresser Piero Esteriore failed to woo the public and came in last place with no points. Twenty-two countries were competing for the right to take part in Saturday?s final round but no other entries failed to score a single point. Switzerland will not now be among the 24 countries selected to take part in Saturday?s final. Ten semi-finalists including favourites Greece and Ukraine advanced to Saturday’s finals joining 14 countries that had advanced automatically including Britain France Germany and Spain.

Swiss television to air second series of MusicStar – Feb 22, 2004
Her debut album ?Fenkadelic? went straight to the top of the charts. Others who made it through to the MusicStar final have been less successful in the cut-throat world of popular music. Piero Esteriore a runner-up in the first series was picked to represent Switzerland at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest in the Turkish city of Istanbul. But the former hairdresser from Basel suffered the humiliation of crashing out of the contest without winning a single point. The SBC does not however believe that Esteriore?s lacklustre performance at Eurovision will put would-be contestants off from auditioning to take part in the programme. And it expects to match or exceed the viewing figures registered during the first series. MusicStar will return to Swiss television screens at the end of November.
