A few words for Armenia in The Eurovision Song Contest
Armenia will participate for the twelfth time at Eurovision as it was 2006 when the country debuted with Andre and the song “Without Your Love”. Then,it had taken the 8th place. Armenia succeeded its best rankings in 2008 with Sirusho and “Qélé, Qélé” and 2014 with Aram MP3 and “Not Alone” ,taking the fourth place.
It has finished within the top 10 seven times while last year Armenia was expected to repeat this success. Eventually, “Fly with Me” with Artsvik finished in the 18th place, disappointing its fans.
