Aram Mp3, the host of Armenia’s X Factor, will represent Armenia at Eurovision 2014. Armenia’s state broadcaster AMPTV made the announcement during a two-hour variety show on New Year’s Eve.

As you can tell from this photo, Aram has a big personality. Besides hosting X Factor, he’s also a comedian. Something tells us he doesn’t need a megaphone! We don’t speak Armenian, but apparently he did not like the name Aram Mp3 when he first decided on it.

Aram Mp3 Armenia Eurovision 3

Aram has had a number of successful hits in Armenia. The official video for his song “Shine” shows that he loves a little bit of bling. Chandeliers, gold jackets, lots of sequins—Aram likes it to shine, y’all!

“If I Tried” shows off his electro sound. It’s very now.

His performance earlier this evening was pretty colorful.

What do you think of Armenia’s choice? Are you upset that Sirusho won’t be in Copenhagen?

I think this guy is amazing. I can’t stop listening to Shine, If I tried and I found an old song he did with someone it’s called Positive. He’s great! Imagine if he comes up with a Bruno Mars style song for Eurovision. Yerevan 2015 is definitely a possibility!

Guys listen to his last song “Just go on” is far better than “Shine” and “If I tried”. I really want smth like this from Armenia this year. Here’s the link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T30sWK5hZWM

Agreed with Charles about Sirusho. She may have been popular, but I sure didn’t enjoy her singing. The beat and verses of Shine are AMAZING. His lack of English prowess hurts him here, though. And it seems like he’s just being facetious with the image he conveys in the video (combined with some painful autotune). I actually care for the second song less. His pronunciation (again) makes it really hard to tell what he’s saying in the verses, which I find more unappealing in this context because the song depends heavily on its lyrical message. Also, it sounds like it… Read more »

Am I upset that Sirusho won’t be bothering my ears in Copenhagen? 🙂 Judging solely on this 2 songs I can tell that Aram is a good performer and vocally really good. That kind of surprised me how good he can be, which is a good thing. However …. a) His “Shine” song is a complete crap and makes him look like a twat … what’s the point? b) His “If I tried” is the other opposite … he not only is believable in what he sings and fills in with emotion and conviction, he also delivers a very strong… Read more »

I hope he won’t be another Anri. He seems capable of producing a good song.

I would like to see Sirusho again… I know that Aram mp3 sings well, but he hasn’t Sirusho’s sharm. Sirusho. Besides this now Sirusho is internationally more or less famous. And I know one thing surely, that Sirusho don’t want to participate again, thats why she will never go…

Sings well, but his message seems somewhat outdated stupid: polarization, spitefulness. Is that really Armenia or rather the Armenian Diaspora in the USA? No postive statements by any Armenians so far…

For most of European countries this kind of artist and songs not fit! I think Armenia do very strange choice! No chance in Eurovision Song Contest

He will get lots of votes if he uses these backing dancers 🙂 Seriously though – he sounds good. Will provide the much needed variety in style.

Can you just compare their voices, Aram has much more chances to win than Lilit and you haven’t any right to outrage Gohar Gasparyan!
P.S. Aram mp3 is talent.
