Her name means “eagle” — and we’re ready to fly with her. But before we hit the skies, Armenia’s Eurovision 2017 entrant Artsvik sat down with us for an interview ahead of her stirring performance at Eurovision in Concert in Amsterdam on Saturday.
Wearing on-trend aviator sunglasses, this diva from the Caucuses opened up about her personal transformation, her experimental song and much, much more.
Although she does speak a little bit of English, Artsvik travels with an interpreter (who also happens to be one of her songwriters) on her promo tour. She wants to make sure that her message gets through. Nevertheless, we were delighted when she said — in perfect English — that she had been looking forward to meeting William and that she remembered the reaction video he made with fellow wiwiblogger Deban.
Speaking of Depi Evratesil, Artsvik told us that she is not very different now that she was at Armenia’s national selection, though she does feel “much stronger now”. Just call her Britney, y’all!
She literally showed off her strength in the music video for “Fly With Me” too. In the video, she wears a 10-kilo headpiece and makes it look easy, almost as if it was CGI. But it was all real. Her team wanted an “experimental look” in the music video to give life to the other-worldly sound.
We also asked Artsvik about her very avant-garde song “Fly With Me”, which she embraced despite being known primarily for covers of Whitney Houston.
She loved the challenge of performing a unique, unexpected song. The main message is that love unites us — we couldn’t agree more!

Does Artsvik want Europeans to know anything about Armenia and its people? Of course!
Armenia is a very beautiful and welcoming country and she hopes that everyone will get to visit one day. Well, if Armenia wins this year, you can definitely count on us being in sunny Yerevan next May!
What do you think about Artsvik’s Eurovision in Concert performance? And how well do you think Artsvik will do in Kyiv? Let us know in the comments!

@Siran – kurik jan herika steg tragedia sarkes. Amen mard iravunk uni ira kartsika aselu. Hnents es pashtpanum vontsvor azgayin hartsa. Hangstatsi u lav or unenas.
Hayeren khosum ek???? Stakhos poshde!!!
@Siran – if you must know, I’m American with an ARMENIAN heritage. This “criticism” has nothing to do with the country or its music or anything else. It’s just an observation. Herika himar himar baner grek.
“Steve”, but it is so polite to refer people “Azeri” as a curse or attack and call people “azeri” when they express their negative opinions about Armenia? Actually, they did not write anything negative, they just humoristically compared. And it is not the first time. I have seen it here million times. I am not pointing out all Armenians, as Siren or people like Siren points out Azeris. So in this respect, my addressed comment to only Siren does not humiliate Armenia or Armenians. Get some logical reasoning classes. They are mostly free. Btw, I am not cool, I am… Read more »
Ron look what your singer wearing she has nose earrring disgusting!!! Stop it!!!
From what I hear she’s working with the same designers in Armenia who worked with Iveta Mukuchyan…but for some reason I just don’t like Artsvik’s styling. Like, what the hell was the designer thinking dressing her like a 90’s secretary in that over-sized pant suits with a red turtle neck. Seriously?
Steve ay jo you are attacking first you are negative and teacher!! You learn first!!
It’s not polite to attack someone for expressing an opinion. Teaching someone not to oppose to Intimidating comment by a guess is extremely anacceptable. Stop trying to be “cool” in the most negative way.
@Siran, how many times do you wash your brain a day?! lol
@Siran // I meaning she is very hight Fashion her Oversized style is from fashion house Balenciaga paris. bye
Wonderful voice, graceful lady, one of my favourites <3
