Armenia, the land of Sirusho and Eva Rivas, has kept its lips tight when it comes to discussing this year’s internal selection for Eurovision 2015. While we have no updates from ARMTV at the moment, Eurofans are starting to think that Athena Manoukian, a rising Greek-Armenian pop star, could be shaking it in Vienna. The latest rumours are fueled by this Facebook message Athena posted on Facebook on January 21.
Who is Athena Manoukian?
We don’t have much information other than a biography from MTV. MTV describes her this way:
This savvy teen and goddess of the stage was discovered a few years ago and immediately sky rocketed into Europe’s dance clubs overnight with her phenomenal vocal range, stage presence and catchy pop/dance tunes.
From a very young age, she showed her talent in music and incredible ability in performing on stage. A true show piece indeed!
The nineteen year old is originally from Greece but has Armenian heritage. Coming from two folk-pop empires, we can certainly expect something authentically dance worthy and patriotic from her if she goes.
Digging a bit into her history, we also found more reason to suspect Athena Manoukian of accepting any Eurovision proposals coming her way. She competed in the Greek national final for Junior Eurovision back in 2008, where she placed seventh with “To fili tis Afroditis”.
We featured her in our recent Armenia poll, and at the moment she is way down in 16th place.
What can Athena Manoukian bring to the table?
Do you want Athena Manoukian to represent Armenia in Eurovision 2015? Could she bring a strong result?
