Wiwi Jury: Depi Evratesil 2018 reviews and rankings

3

Twenty singers have been chosen to compete at Depi Evratesil 2018. The winner will earn the right to represent Armenia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — has taken the time to review the 20 hopefuls. Who will follow in the footsteps of Iveta Mukuchyan and Artsvik to fly the Armenian flag at Eurovision?

Our jury for Depi Evratesil 2018 consists of 16 jurors. They come from Albania, Australia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Hungary, Lithuania, New Zealand, Portugal, Romania, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be reviewing the songs two at a time over the coming days. You can read the reviews by clicking on the song title.
