This year’s representative of Cyprus at Eurovision, Elena Tsagrinou has a great chance of reaching a high place in the final ranking. The singer’s performance during the first semi-final made the audience red. There have even been comments on the web that she is a Cypriot response to Lady Gaga, and the mash-up of Elena’s Eurovision proposal with the hit Bad Romance is very popular among fans of the competition.
Elena Tsagrinou is Lady Gaga from Cyprus? Maybe these are too far-reaching conclusions, but you have to admit that the singers have something in common. Surely they both know how to make a great show. The singer representing Cyprus at Eurovision 2021 did her best by performing the song El Diablo live. Vocal, complicated choreography and special effects ensured her love of viewers from all over Europe, and thus promotion to the grand finale of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021, which will take place on May 22.
Soon after the premiere of Elena’s Eurovision track, comments appeared on the web that it resembled the big hit from Lady Gaga’s repertoire, which heralded her album The Fame Monster, released in 2009. I’m talking about the single Bad Romance. Recall that the music video shot for it was the first music clip ever played over 180 million times. One of the Eurovision fans even created a mash-up of both songs, which is very popular among other fans of the largest music competition in the world.

After comments began to appear on the web that El Diablo sounds similar to Bad Romance, a man named Stelios Christou decided to combine both songs into one. In the description of the video, which has already generated nearly 200,000 views, he emphasized, however, that the mash-up was created solely for entertainment, and is not intended to ridicule Elena or the people who worked on her Eurovision song. Do you hear the similarity too?
