Armenia at Eurovision
Since Armenia’s Eurovision debut in 2006, the Caucasian nation has become one of the contest’s most successful nations. With eleven participations so far, only once have they missed out on the grand final: Emmy’s Boom Boom in 2011. In addition, Armenia has six top ten finishes to their name. Sirusho and Aram MP3 were Armenia’s most successful representatives, finishing in 4th place with Qélé, Qélé in 2008 and Not Alone in 2014 respectively.
This year, Artsvik represented Armenia following her victory in Depi Evratesil at the end of 2016. This three-month selection contest was Armenia’s longest selection process ever and was praised by many for the high-quality production values and talent on offer. Artsvik performed Fly With Me in Kyiv and finished in 18th place, a result that surprised many.
