Aram MP3 has been stalked with controversy throughout his journey to Copenhagen. First he was accused of making inappropriate comments about Conchita and then was unceremoniously booed at Eurovision In Concert in Amsterdam.
But with his feet on two ground and his eyes fixed on the prize, he’s put all of that behind him. It’s easy to see that he’s drawn strength from those he loves most. “I’m alone on stage because that’s the message I went to send to my audience…you may be alone physically, but you’re not alone,” he says. He also elaborated on his staging in the B&W Hallerne.
On The Song’s Message
“You always have a door open to you: you just have to find it!” Aram is keen on combatting loneliness.
On His Intentions At The Contest
Eurovision may be a singing contest but it’s also a big business platform. Loreen’s ‘Euphoria’ charted across the entire continent in 2012 and Emmelie De Forest has successfully toured Europe throughout national selection season. Aram told WiwiBloggs: “It’s a pleasure of course…it’s a life experience to be here and see a lot of good musicians and good participants.” He then added mischievously, “After, it’s business!”
On Charting in Azerbaijan
“It’s great! I think music has no political message…to be honest we really were surprised though!” We can forgive Aram being surprised at the positive reception in Azerbaijan – relations between Yerevan and Baku have been strained due to the ongoing Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
