Today was the annual ‘Armenian Street Festival’, where all things Armenian were celebrated from food and wine to music. Of course, with me being a lover of all things Armenian, I just had to go to the event and witness how amazing it was, and let me tell you I was not disappointed.

When I arrived, I was thinking ‘Please God, do not let me have missed Iveta Mukuchyan’s performance and thankfully I hadn’t. However what I did witness was quite hilarious. An Armenian auction with various Armenian objects ranging from a bottle of Brandy that dated back all the way to the year 1913, yes you heard right 1913. Now that’s not the most shocking part of it, the fact that it sold for over £600 was astonishing. Nonetheless it was lovely to see how united the Armenian community were through this event.

Now let’s look at the woman herself, that needs no introduction but I will give her one. Miss Iveta Mukuchyan. As soon as she walked onto stage I was in awe of her, it was as if my heart stopped beating (LITERALLY). I couldn’t believe that the woman, who I loved for so long and wished to go to the Eurovision stage for a few years, was within walking distance. It was honestly one of the highlights of my life and I definitely hope to see her again in London.

Alongside her Eurovision performance of ‘Lovewave’ she also treated the fans to her other hits such as ‘Ari Yar’ and ‘Simple like a Flower’ as well as doing a cover of ‘Sweet Sweet Loving’, and oh how sweet is Iveta Mukuchyan.

This has been a dream come true for myself and I can’t wait for Iveta Mukuchyan’s World Tour, hopefully coming soon to a city near you.

I first watched the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007, and fell in love with Natalia Barbu and 'Fight'. I have a love for ethnic music, particular Armenian, Arabic, Turkish and Greek and one day in the near future look forward to an Armenian win. Its a pleasure to be a part of and continue my passion for Eurovision
