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.

You can keep up to date on the team’s exploits on the ground in Copenhagen by following us on Twitter @WiwiBloggs and liking our page on Facebook.

Disappointed at the armenian having a go at the uk – weve not anything wrong to you jeez. everyone ive spoken to about esc here loves aram, he has a great song and a great sense of humour 🙂 to the azeris who think theyre better than everyone else, youre the only people who thinks fondly of your country. those whove actually heard of it think its another north korea

@carl listen, knowing (better) language doesn’t make someone a clever person. By ‘mongoloid’ i mean a race – not the level of one’s degradation. (you just insulted entire mongoloid race)
Eldar, racially is clearly of mongoloid descent, even though mixed, like all of you in a certain degree.

Really, i’m fed up of Aram’s haters…

Leave him alone, for God sake. If you hate him or his song, why you waste your time writing negative comments about him?
I’m Polish girl from Warsaw and i adore Aram. For being such a positive, talented and funny man. Especially when my boyfriend cheated at me and called me stupid. Aram Mp3 is only one person, who makes my day brighter.
I’ll definitely vote for Armenia this year.

@Wergie,you can not compare Aram with Eldar because Eldar is more clever than Aram.Aram cannot know 10% of Eldar’s English.and now,Who is mongoloid?

Your beautifugly mongoloid Eldar wasn’t that good, even though he studied abroad.., so and Lena’s english is far from perfect. What about previous winners? (There are others who, unlike Aram, can’t even speak english) What about Ruslana or Dima Bilan etc.etc.

Not impressive. But he could be the worst winner in years. Such a lame commercial song with dubstep beats and such an annoying voice you rarely hear. It would be funny to win and then carry a translator all around the world.

He wrote the song in 12 minutes. This explains why it includes the lyric “You’re not alone” so many times. (Or should I say “You’re nat alone” in a cod-American accent).

I’ve been feeling pretty indifferent about “Not Alone”, but all the videos I’ve seen from Copenhagen make Aram MP3 seem like a really nice guy with a great sense of humour. It makes me feel better about the song, and yet I still don’t think it will win.

Thank you for sharing this funny video. I can now see how talented Aram really is. I gotta say, I watched the video maybe 10 times already and I kept on laughing. Too funny. I hope people here will watch it too. Thanks.

It is so ridiculous to read messages from gay people in Azerbaijan speaking up openly of being gay:))) Please stop the show of imitation:))) If you identify yourself as gays in Azerbaijan, then I can imagine what can happen to you. Being once in Armenia and twice to Azerbaijan I can say that Armenia is much more democratic country than Azerbaijan, and unlike Azerbaijan people in Armenia can speak up heir mind openly and nobody will care. Instead , people can be taken to jail in Azerbaijan if they criticise someone… So, please think twice before leaving messages here…

He seems to be exhausted but that does not prevent him from performing the song without any flaws. He deserves to win. Go ahead, man!!!!

Calm down Seymur, us Britons aren’t jealous. We’ve won five times and come second 15 times. When your country has as many top two places, then we might consider a bit of jealousy.

@Seymur let’s enjoy the music 😉 Enough with conflicts . We represent same region after all ,some people would call it “Middle East” some people “Caucasus ” some people “Eastern Europe” .
Western Europeans talk sh*t after us ,saying we fight too much ,we are not European etc .
Guys seriously let’s not open their mouths on us .We were friends before after all .Let’s remember that and respect each other.

I may agree with you since there are some Armenians living in Azerbaijan when Armenia had deported all Azeris from Armenia in 80’s as the start of NK conflict. I mean it’s probably those Azeri Armenians who are enjoying the music of Aram MP3 on iTunes.

Ah c’mon! One can’t write a song in just 12 minutes, even if 70% of it is just saying “not alone” over and over again 😛
As usual, I think is just Aram trying to be funny… we know how that went the last time.

Deven O'Kearney

Is Aram joking when he says he wrote the song in 12 minutes?
I don’t think so to be honest with you. How many times have the words ”You’re Not Alone” been repeated? At least 76!!! I am a MAJOR fan of Aram MP3 and writing a song in a ridiculous amount of time and repeating the same 3 words continuously is pretty damn worrying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙁 I want Aram to do Armenia proud, not f*ck himself up.

@RyanIrland yes you should have thought before writing XD oops.
And yea Eastern European’s traditions are quite different from your Western European’s traditions,so you may call us non-Europeans .But who cares right? ; ) .We ,Azeris ,Turks(well Turks are not here this year but still ) ,Georgian people are in this contest anyways ,so enjoy our existence XD

And yea we do talk sh*t about each other sometimes.But it should not bother you 😉 Just ignore it ?
We do not put our nose in your and UK ‘s business I think.I have seen you fighting as well .;)

Rofl Historians have already answers for you .You just need to ask them. However I know many of you will feel anger disappointment maybe that’s why you do not ask ?.Your government uses and brainwashes you .But whatever .

Oh yea ask your Grand Grandfather or some old people about your history .I am sure they know less about your history than you do.Because time was different back then ,they were not brainwashed then.Books were not written ridiculously .

There are some good Azeris who realize that.

Now STFU and talk about music .

What a lie! Nobody listens to Aram mp3 in Azerbaijan.
In Baku people like to listen to the below, and commercial advertisements on TV and Radio are still accompanied with the following music,

Turkish, Italian, Russian, Dagestani, Ukranian, Georgian,Uzbekistan pop music and particularly ESC 2012 songs from Albania, Sweden, Bulgaria, Malta, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, Macedonia, Serbia, France, Greece, Cyprus, Hungary, Israel, San Marino, Italy, Germany, UK, Iceland, Romania, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, etc.

So it was him who wrote it, after all. Who would say? I always thought they bought it on Vube.

I like Not Alone. It’s not my favourite song in the contest but it’s what I want to win to prevent other songs from winning. Said that, one can tell it’s been written in 12 minutes. 90% of the song is mere orchestation, wonderful epic orchestation that fits great with ESC these days. It’s good that the 10% left -the song itself- doesn’t ruin the beautifull packaging.
