Turin 2022🇦🇲 Armenia

Armenian act for Eurovision 2022 yet to be chosen

They are due to announce their chosen artist in early March.

Despite rumours swirling around various outlets that Armenia’s ARMTV had internally-selected their artist for Eurovision 2022, the broadcaster has publicly denounced these claims. According to their Head of Public Relations, they will announce their artist in early March.

In recent days, Armenian news outlets had claimed that Nvak Collective alumna Rosa Linn (Rosa Kostandyan) had been internally-selected to represent Armenia at Eurovision 2022.

However, according to Anna Ohanyan, ARMTV Head of Public Relations, the broadcaster has yet to even reach ‘the final stage’ of their decision:

We haven’t yet reached the final stage. The name of the participant is not decided yet. We will officially announce his/her name when there is a final decision.

According to Anna, the broadcaster will be making their final decision in the coming weeks, and will announce their chosen artist for Turin in ‘early March’.

Armenia’s withdrawal (and return)

In October 2020, it was announced that Armenia would not take part in the 2021 contest:

After careful and detailed discussions, the Public Television Company of Armenia has decided to withdraw from the Eurovision Song Contest 2021, considering the latest events, the shortness of production time as well as other objective reasons that make the proper participation of Armenia at ESC 2021 impossible.

Athena Manoukian was set to represent Armenia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with the song “Chains on You”. After the 2020 contest was cancelled, it was uncertain if AMPTV had the intention of giving Athena a second chance in 2021.

As of yet, the only confirmation we have for Armenia’s Eurovision 2022 participation…is that they are participating.

Ever since I saw Helena Paparizou's triumph at Eurovision in 2005 (at the tender age of 6), I have been crazy about Eurovision. From the regional native language bops and shrieky female-led balladry to the sophisticated avant garde pop songs and chart-friendly EDM, I love everything about this cultural phenomenon. I'm currently working as a Delivery Manager in a software development team.
