When Aram Mp3 was selected as Armenia’s Eurovision 2014 contestant, some of you worried he was too much of a comedian and not enough of a singer. Well last night he mixed humor and music to great effect when he unveiled his cover of Emmelie de Forest’s “Only Teardrops”. Introducing the song he had this to say: “The winner of Eurovision 2013 Emmelie invited me to the Eurovision Song Contest. I’ll be there soon my darling and now I’ll sing your song in Yerevan.”
We approve of the cheeky comments—and his soulful interpretation. It’s loungy, ethnic, tribal, and zen all at once. What do you think of his Only Teardrops cover? Let us know in the comments box below!
