Armenia has today confirmed to eurovision.tv that it will be present at Eurovision 2016. It will reveal its artist on October 13 at 17:15 CET on the “Profession of a Journalist” TV show. But we already know the gender: It’s a girl!

Yes, the land of apricot stones and ladies who go boom boom is back in the game and they’re fielding a female starlet. As with Genealogy last year, they’ve released a tantilizing trailer to whet your appetites. Check out the hips on this one!

In recent days wiwibloggs has been obsessed with two ladies: Iveta Mukuchyan and Athena Manoukian. Head of Delegation Gohar Gasparyan has already come out and denied rumours about Iveta. But we’re still hopeful Athena is that mysterious woman in the trailer.

In an interview with armenpress.am, Athena, who tried to represent Greece at JESC 2008, made it clear she’d love the gig. “It would be an honor for me to represent Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest”, she said, adding that she’d love to reconnect with her Armenian roots.

Naturally we’d also be keen to see our 2015 favourite Tamar Kaprelian in the mix. But the rumour mill has sadly gone cold in recent weeks.

Lilit or Athena))

The skinny body and big hair definitely looks like Lilit to me and I think it’s a great choice 🙂
I just hope they’ll find the right styling for her, I’m not always a fan of her super heavy makeup and big hair

Well now we have at least 5 women competing.

Sweden, Azerbaijan and Italy always send females in even years like 2016. And Ukraine always send a lady regardless of the year.

Armenia denied rumours about Iveta, but the Netherlands denied rumours about Douwe Bob and look at what we know now.

The female entrant in question could either be: 1. Sirusho – the way the woman in the video carries herself reminds me of Sirusho though the woman in the vid looks taller than her so this is a 50/50 2. Anush – if we base it on the height of the woman in the vid then yes, it could be Anush, but I don’t think Anush really shares the same body figure as the woman in the vid – unless they made her wear clothes for the vid that would give her the body figure we’re now seeing in the… Read more »

From the move and body shape, She is Lilit Hovhannisyan. Lilit has great combination between beauty and talents. Helena Paparizou v.2

Witnessing CHER (Sarkissian as its her real armenian surname) representing Armenia in our EuroVision would be really priceless & just OMG unbelievable! 😀
I really do not see at all ever this scenario happening though! It seems more like a science fiction story to me! 😛
This video is GreAtY 4 sure <3 😉

I love how Armenia can make anything dramatic. The message of this video essentially amounts to “SOME INTERN AT THE ARMENIAN BROADCASTER FILLED OUT PAPERWORK,” but you wouldn’t know that just by watching.

That’s definitely either Lilit or Iveta. I’m leaning more towards Iveta because frame wise that looks more like her but still it could be Lilit. Both are amaze!

Here’s my list of options.

* Monica Avanesyan
* Gayane Martirosyan (she used to be in Arevner)
* Dalita
* LuAra
* Monika Manchuarova

Denis: Tbh, I don’t think Armenia is getting any special treatment. Not all countries want to make a big fuss about their artists before the contest. Some are cautious about revealing too much too early, in case the public get tired of the artist or song. And Armenia aren’t the only ones to do this. Remember Azerbaijan’s teaser campaign or the UK’s video introducing Electro Velvet (and, wow, didn’t that give those two countries a massive advantage…) This kind of stuff is only interesting to those of us in the Eurovision bubble. For the vast majority of ESC viewers, the… Read more »

I’m starting to suspect Armenia pays a lot of money to EBU to get their videos featured. it’s like their sponsored or something.
Other countries chose their artist quietly without any buzz and barely gets featured videos/articles about them. The Netherlands just announced their performer. Was there a big deal made of it?

But with Armenia it’s all drama for nothing. From how they chose their artist to how that artist relaxes before going on stage. The songs aren’t even worth all the drama, they stink.

I wish other countries could be this dramatic about everything concerning the process

Oh wait, first time I played it without the sound, just realised it does specifically say “We are ready to reveal HER name” lol.
No man in a wig or 80s rock glamour guy then. Shame lol.

Altho it confirms the gender at least its a better mystery then last years one for Azerbaijan which stated the angel was back as if no one would guess who the artist was going to be lol.
It looks like it could be Athena but its hard to tell.

Lilit would be the bomb! But Tamar and Athena were also an amazing choice

Genealogy was a great idea but was TERRIBLE. The worst for me of 2015. Actually, Armenia is not a favourable country in Eurovision for me. Awful song or awful singers. Hopefully 2016 will be a year I like them! And by the looks of it, I think I will.

It’s gonna be Iveta, she liked on facebook ‘Armenia in Eurovision’ and ‘Eurovision Armenia’ 😉

I’d go nuts if it ends up by being Lilit Hovhannisyan. Those moves, that curly hair, that glam style posing on the teaser… it HAS to be her!

I am almost sure it’s Athena. But again shame to the head of Armenian delegation they don’t allow people to choose their singer. It’s not legal

Armenia puts more effort into the teaser video then UK puts into finding a contest and a song!

Sadly I don’t think it’s Tamar or Iveta ( though I’d love for the latter to be there).
I think it’s Athena or Lilit
