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 Escxtra.com and continue my passion for Eurovision
