Armenia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest
Armenia made its Junior Eurovision debut back in 2007 when the contest was held in Rotterdam. Aremik was the first to wave the Armenian flag at the contest with the song “Erazanq”. She finished second with 136 points, only a single point behind that year’s winner Belarus, narrowly missing out on a triumphant debut. After debuting in 2007, Armenia hasn’t missed out on a single contest and has enjoyed excellent results every year. They won the contest once in 2010 with Vladimir Arzumanyan and his catchy entry “Mama”.They also never missed out on a top 10 and placed in the top 3 multiple times
Last year in Gliwice, Karina Ignatyan represented Armenia at the contest with “Colours of Your Dream”. They finished in ninth place – their joint lowest ever result at the contest.
