Levina visits Armenian Genocide memorial complex…as NDR releases “Perfect Life” revamp

34

That’s what you call a perfect promo tour!

On Saturday — following a series of visits to Georgia, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Israel — German singer Levina continued promoting her Eurovision 2017 song “Perfect Life” during a trip to Armenia.

The tour came to an end with an emotional visit to the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial Complex, the country’s official memorial dedicated to the victims of the Armenian Genocide, alongside Armenia’s Eurovision 2017 act Artsvik.

Levina on the road

This year German broadcaster NDR seems to have high ambitions at Eurovision. Even if Levina’s song isn’t exactly a fan favourite, she and her team are giving their all to show Europe who she is.

Besides taking part in various Eurovision pre-parties, she’s been traveling through Europe to promote her entry.

Over the past few days Levina visited the Armenian capital of Yerevan. She documented everything she did on her Facebook page. You can check out her “Trip to Armenia” gallery here.

Scrolling through the photos, one thing becomes clear: this girl really knows how to make an impression! Levina was omnipresent in the Armenian media, appearing on several talk shows and meeting her new fans.

She also enjoyed trying out typical Armenian food and even learned some folk dance moves. This girl knows how to slay!

On my last evening in Yerevan Artsvik and our guide Rima showed me some Armenian dance moves – thank you ????????????

The most emotional part of her journey, however, took place on Saturday.

Depi Evratesil-winner Artsvik met with her Eurovision comrade and took her to visit the Armenian Genocide memorial complex. It’s located on the hill of Tsitsernakaberd in Yerevan. Wearing black, Levina and Artsvik commemorated the victims of the genocide by laying flowers at the site.

But this isn’t the end of Levina’s tour! Before heading to Kyiv she will continue promoting herself in Macedonia, Hungary and Germany’s neighbour Austria. We’re really impressed by her packed schedule and hopefully the hard work will pay off in the end.

Levina’s revamped “Perfect Life”

Another factor of how well Germany will do at this year’s Eurovision is, of course, the song itself. After countless complaints that “Perfect Life” sounded similar to David Guetta’s “Titanium”, NDR promised a new Eurovision version, which finally dropped on Saturday. You can listen to the Eurovision version of Levina’s song here.

Thanks to new instrumentation, the “Titanium” segments have disappeared and sound significantly softer, but the melody hasn’t changed. Towards the end of the song, some elements have been added and Levina changed some notes which make the song a bit more edgy. But overall the changes aren’t that remarkable.

A lot of fans wanted a more notable revamp with elements from Levina’s official Madizin Remix. Do you think they should have gone with something like that? Or do you think the new version is a perfect “Perfect Life”? Let us know in the comments below.
