We have often fantasized about Eurovision supergroups — and today Armenia has made our wish come true. AMPTV has finally and officially announced that six singers will come together for Eurovision in Vienna. The group, known as Genealogy, will consist of artists from five different continents, and all of them will be of Armenian descent. A sixth artist will come from Armenia. Six stars. One group. A whole lot of OMGs!
Here’s how their team described it in an e-mail to wiwibloggs.
The creative team of the Armenian Public TV Company considered this year’s official ESC slogan and numerous requests from Armenian Diaspora (which is always supporting our Eurovision representatives). Being inspired by the Armenian Genocide Centennial symbol of the Forget-me-not flower, the team decided to introduce a new format.
Valuing the idea of peace, unity, and tolerance the creative team of the AMPTV united the new generation of the Armenian people spread through 5 continents around the world in the year of 1915. 5 singers from Europe, Asia, America, Africa, and Australia with Armenian origin are associated with the 5 petals of the Forget-me-not flower. The 6th artist from Armenia will join the group to unify the petals. The group is being created especially for the contest and is called “Genealogy”. The new generation will sing “Don’t deny.”

The first member of the group “Genealogy’’ will be publicized on February 16, though this map gives us a hint of where they are from. And yes, there’s another Australian coming to Eurovision!
Fans are already guessing what cities those dots represent.
