About Hovig:

You may remember Hovig from the national final in 2015 where he finished 4th (1 point behind 2016 representatives Minus One), his song “Stone In A River” was a beautiful ballad. However, it wasn’t his first attempt as he had already taken part at the Cypriot national selection for Eurovision in 2010, where he reached the 3rd place. Hovig of course found his fame through The X Factor (Greece) in 2009, where he was eliminated in Week 11. He was on the second season of the contest, with fellow Cypriots, and past Eurovision stars, Ivi Amadou and Eleftheria Eleftheriou.
