If Wiwi had to be reborn as a women, he’d want to be tall and leggy with a dark, smoky voice. He’s want vocals that rival Mariah, and he’d want to have hair that reaches down to his legs so he could throw it out the window for potential suitors to climb. Basically he’d want to be Eva Rivas, one of Eurovision’s most lovable contestants!

WATCH:

But Wiwi wouldn’t want to dance in front of an oversized apricot pit. Now, I realize that “Apricot Stone” has a lot of deep meaning and that the apricot is important to the Armenian people (you can read all about the symbolism by clicking here). But on stage it just looks kind of silly. Especially with a random male dancer turning pirouettes, and a bunch of back-up vocalists who don’t seem to know what to do with themselves. Of course, Eva was having a very informal rehearsal. I bet she’s saving all the big moves and fancy choreography for the semi-final. Smart girl, that one!

On the positive side of things, Eva’s going to appeal to voters of all age ranges. This song manages to sound traditional and modern all at once. Plus everyone over the age of 75 is going to vote for this. That’s because Eva is being joined on stage by Jivan Gasparyan, an 83-year-old musician and the oldest person ever to perform at Eurovision. According to eurovision.tv, “he will be seated on a stone, playing a duduk, a traditional Armenian flute.” This is why Wiwi loves Eurovision!

By the way, I read that Duduk is also made of apricote tree. And the thrid color of Armenian flag is not orange (as we see in internet) but aprocite color indeed. Jivan is a world known phenomenon. He playsed in “Gladiator”, he played with Peter Gabriel. He is the mentor or Pedro Eustace who plays today with Yanni and for Googoosh. We are going to see a legend! And there is so much more philosophical. So stop mocking on the fruit.!

I wish 😀 :
Many many surprises 😀
Many many nice dresses and good dancing..
Well, you can’t expect much from a first rehearsel really !
Why would people watch if everything was shown in the first reharsel video ?!?!
And btw the cameras are not the ones that are going to be shown on TV, not the sound eather !! So don’t take any final dessisions before the REAL preformance in the FINALS 😉

The apricot thing looks pretty gaudy.

This is not the first time Armenia disappoints with the staging of a great song. Shirusho comes to mind…
