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.
