Vienna 2015

Genealogy to Vienna!

Armenian broadcaster ARMTV has just revealed their act for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. After days full of rumours, the broadcaster has now revealed who they will send. They will be sending a group of well known vocalists to Vienna, under the name Genealogy. The band will sing Don’t Deny.

The group will consist of six singers, who all have their own individual careers in the Armenian music scene on different continents, except for one member. According to Eurovision.tv, the singers will be announced one at a time, with the first one being revealed on 16 February. There will be a singer from Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and America, accompanied by an Armenian native.

The six names are already rumoured, but we won’t find out who they are until ARMTV reveals them. The idea behind Genealogy is the forget-me-not-flower, the symbol of the remembrance of the Armenian Genocide in 1915. The idea is to get people from Armenian descent all over the world to show their Armenian identity, which is why singers from all five continents will fly the Armenian flag.

The song Genealogy will sing, Don’t Deny, is going to be revealed at a later date. For now, it seems Armenia is doing all they can to get their biggest pop stars flying the Armenian flag in Vienna. Will these singers manage to bring Armenia their first top three result or even first victory? So far, Sirusho in 2008 and Aram MP3 in 2014 have achieved Armenia’s best ever result, coming fourth in the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest.
