As the first rehearsals for Semi Final 1 of the Eurovision Song Contest get underway , we at Eurovision Ireland thought it might be an idea during our build up to the contest to look back at each of the 37 participating countries highs and lows in their history of competing in the contest .Today we will focus on Armenia .
When did Armenia first participate at Eurovision?
Armenia debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006 when Andre competed at the contest in Athens with his song “Without your Love”. He managed to qualify from the Semi Final to the Grand Final and finished in 8th position in the Grand Final, a very respectable placing for a debut country.
Armenia’s highest point at Eurovision
Armenia actually achieved their highest point twice , in 2008 and 2014. In 2008, they were represented by Sirusho with her song “Qele, Qele”,in Belgrade, Serbia.She had to qualify from the semi finals and gained 4th place in the Grand Final. In 2014 Aram MP3 represented his country in Copenhagen , Denmark and was one of the early favourites to win the whole contest. He came close, achieving the position Sirusho got back in 2008 , with his song “You’re not alone”.
Worth a mention is last year’s Armenian performer, Rosa Linn with her song “Snap”. Although she qualified for the Grand Final , she only achieved 20th place. However, following the contest, the song went viral on Tik Tok and charted globally, earning her a contract with Columbia Records.
Armenia’s lowest point at Eurovision
Armenia’s worst result at the contest to date is 16th in Semi Final 2 in 2019 in Tel Aviv , Israel . Srbuk with her song “Walking out ” came 16th with just 49 points and failed to qualify for the Grand Final.
How will Armenia do in 2023?
This year, Armenia are represented by Brunette with her song “Future Lover”. Can she bring Armenia back to the top 5 in Liverpool?
