German-Armenian model, pop star and personality Iveta Mukuchyan is a woman on the move. In 2010 she won hearts on Armenia’s Hay Superstar. In 2012 she made it big on The Voice of Germany. Then she was named the Sexiest Woman in Armenia by El Style Magazine. It’s no wonder that Eurofans in Armenia are calling on ARMTV to select her for Eurovision 2015.
Armenia at Eurovision 2015?
For its last three appearances at Eurovision, Armenia’s ARMTV has internally selected its Eurovision singer. Last year the broadcaster revealed Aram Mp3 would sing during a TV gala on New Year’s Eve. Word has it they’ll once again reveal an internally selected candidate in December. Thousands of fans are keeping their fingers crossed for Iveta, who would be the first female Armenian singer since Emmy in 2011.

Born in Armenia, Iveta moved to Germany when she was just five years old. But when she reached her early 20s, her parents suggested she return to the Motherland. She studied jazz vocal performance and within a year found herself rising to prominence during the fourth season of Hay Superstar, the Armenian version of Pop Idol. She finished fifth on the show.

Buoyed by her success in Armenia, Iveta tried her luck on The Voice of Germany in 2012. Working with judge and mentor Xavier Kurt Naidoo — aka Kobra — she made it all the way to Week 11. There were flashes of Eurovision greatness even then: She covered Loreen’s “Euphoria” during her audition!
