She works a sky-scraping top-knot and throws down some fierce, traditional dance moves in the video for her Eurovision 2017 song “Fly With Me”.
And on Tuesday Armenia’s Artsvik announced she’ll continue to pull the past into today by recording a series of covers of traditional songs.
Armenia’s amazonian goddess uploaded a short clip to Twitter where she revealed how the Eurovision 2017 theme “Celebrate Diversity” inspired her to launch the series of covers. She’s also challenging artists from around Europe to perform their own covers of Armenian folk songs of their choice.

First on her list is Germany. Artsvik lent her pronunciation-perfect German to the traditional track “Das Wandern ist des Müllers Lust”, which she sings with simple piano accompaniment. Her voices shines.
The ball is now in Levina’s court to take up the challenge and give her unique take on an Armenian folk song. If we had our way Eurovision stars across the continent would also give their take on Armenian Eurovision hits, but we’re fairly sure “LoveWave” doesn’t count as folk! Sad face 🙁

Artsvik’s road to the Eurovision Song Contest 2017
After a three-month battle in Armenia’s Depi Evratesil, Artsvik was crowned the winner on Christmas Eve, after fighting it out against Marta in the final.
Since then she’s been working on “Fly With Me”, perfecting her dance moves and working with a team of Armenian stylists to bring out her natural beauty and flair.
Now she’ll be rehearsing and refining her performance ahead of Semi-Final 1 of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, including an appearance at Eurovision In Concert.
