Artsvik Alma Eurovisions next top model
Artsvik Alma Eurovisions next top model

The road to becoming Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2017 is long and bumpy. It doesn’t follow a straight line — it follows countless twists and turns (and that’s just the padding that some of our girls use to enhance their on-stage silhouettes).

In March we launched our annual search for the contestant who has what it takes to succeed as an international superstar after the Eurovision glory fades. Knowing that ENTM has become the premiere online modelling contest for the women competing at Eurovision, our readers voted in droves, casting a total of 21,643 votes during the semi-finals. Tonight 28 must become 14. The first elimination of Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2017 starts now.

Twenty-eight mostly beautiful women stand before me, but I only have 14 photos in my hands. And these photos represent the 14 of you who are still in the running to become Eurovision’s Next Top Model.

The woman finishing in first place has proven to us that she understands transformation. When she competed in her country’s Eurovision selection show she was a Whitney Houston cover artist with a school teacher look. But she’s gone back to the drawing board, shaken out her ponytail and returned with a top-knot that embodies “the higher the hair, the closer to heaven” mantra we live by.

She ain’t no cover artist now. She is Armenia’s Artsvik.

Congratulations, Arstvik. You’re still in the running to become Eurovision’s Next Top Model.

The woman finishing in second place in the semi-finals embodies Parisian fashion better than anyone. She’s got legs as long as the Eiffel Tower and knows how to work a plunging neckline to show off her stunning décolletage, which makes the boys say oo la la.

She says “embrasse-moi!” in her Eurovision song and, baby, we’re ready to pucker up. She is France’s Alma!

Congratulations Alma. You’re still in the running to become Eurovision’s Next Top Model.

Age doesn’t define beauty, and youth doesn’t limit poise. And that’s why I’m so thrilled to award third place in our semi-finals to an eighteen-year-old who understands that beauty is borderless. She may hail from Romania, but she yodels with the power of a thousand Swiss milkmaids. From Transylvania to the world via a mountain in Austria, she is Ilinca!

Congratulations, Ilinca. You’re still in the running to become Eurovision’s Next Top Model.

Now look — if I have to read out 23 more names I’m going to run out of things to say. And, more to the point, I don’t have a sponsor so somebody better call Coca-Cola if you want better production value. The women finishing in fourth to 13th place and advancing to the final of Eurovision’s Next Top Model are: Greece’s Demy, Poland’s Kasia Mos, Albania’s Lindita, Switzerland’s Miruna, Macedonia’s Jana Burceska, Denmark’s Anja Nissen, The United Kingdom’s Lucie Jones, Georgia’s Tamara Gachechiladze, Belarus’ Ksenia Zhuk and Belgium’s Blanche.

Ladies, all of you are safe. But safe is a word we don’t like. This year RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Michelle Visage and Ross Matthews are the Eurovision commentators in America, and they sure as hell will not tolerate safe. At Eurovision you don’t lip-sync for your life. You’ve got to turn up and turn out live on air in front of 200 million (including at least 50 million judgmental queens). To quote RuPaul, turn up the heat or go down in flames.

Thirteen mostly beautiful women stand before me. But I only have one Instagram photo in my hands. And this photo represents the one of you who is still in the running to become Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2017. If I do not call your name you must immediately return to the House of Wiwi, pack your bags and go home. And don’t take my towels, or I will sabotage your LED during the semi-finals.

The final act advancing to the finals, is….

O’G3NE — Lisa, Amy and Shelley.

Ladies, you’re competing as a trio and you have beautiful harmonies. But we want to hear your individual voices. Don’t borrow Sis’ barely-there clothes. Cut up your own denim mini-skirt and slay on your own terms. After all, Karl and Marc don’t send models down the runway in threes…

Total Votes: 21,643

The finals of Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2017 kick off on Monday 27 April — right in the middle of first rehearsals. Being a top model means being able to turn it out after just one hour of sleep even if you had to hitchhike to Kyiv with no change of clothes and only a hot water bottle filled with borscht. We’ve all been there, ladies. No excuses.

What do YOU think? Did your 14 favourites make it through? Do we need to declare a state of she-mergency and throw one of these ladies a lifeline? Let us know in the comments box below.

Armenia’s singer Artsvik most beatifu! For me is Armenia..She is so gorgeous her smile ,her eyes kills and that body.

I am Armenian and I voted twice for Alma. Just as Iveta and Tamar totally deserved to win the previous years, I think Alma should win this year. To me Artsvik is also beautiful, but Alma has a more ‘top model’ look which this contest is about, plus she’s a very lovely girl. I read in many places Armenians writing that they voted both for Alma and Artsvik. If more people were for Alma, the results would be different now. Don’t complain, but vote!

Armenians want us to think… Oh, Armenian women are the most beautiful in the world. Such an old fashioned way of thinking.

Beauty isn’t a bad thing, and if our country has lots of beautiful people, why not flout it?

Yeah, from looking at the voting spread it appears that Armenians have mass voted. Especially considering that the Armenian representative won ENTM the past two years…seems fishy.

btw, IVETA appeared as guest on a soundcheck show for ESC 2017 on the german eurovision site last night and told us, that her new armenian song would be released TODAY. (Unfortunately she didn`t say what the title is.) You can still watch her appearance on eurovision.de.

@Mag: Great you found it – THANK YOU so much!! 🙂
People loved her on the show yesterday and she told a lot about her feelings and experiences during ESC 2016 and said thank you for all the support she got in Stockholm – I´m sure she also meant the Wiwibloggs Team. btw She also told that she was offered to sing the song “Skeletons” a few months ago, but she didn`t explain why she rejected it. (Still my favourite this year.) Let`s see what her new song is like…

Stupid Armenian and Polish people, all Armenian and Polish who voted for Kasia and Artsvik should be banned, how could they not let Martina and another girl pass because of their nationalism?

I am from Armenia, and definitely this year’s top candidates for top model are Tamar and Alma. There are not that much Armenians in the world to impact the results :). I think just because of certain historic circumstances, we are used to be more active to vote for our candidates. Everything will change when the main events start.

Artsvik is a beautiful girl but there is now of winning in this poll , there are far more beautiful girls , armenians are destroying this type of polls . This poll has nothing to do with contest only for fun and winning means nothing . There are also other countries’ fans acting such , and it is meaningless.

JK

Alma and Kasia Mos mostly, but also Ilinca, Lucie Jones, Martina Barta and Ksenia Zhuk are beautiful for me. Demy, Lindita and Artsvik are definitely not my type. But it’s actually a song contest, so their look doesn’t really matter. Anyway, cheers to everyone!

No disrespect to Artsvik – she’s certainly beautiful – but it appears Armenia could send a singing platypus and still win this thing with a fairly comfortable margin.

I wonder why in the polls is Armenia always first….The year 2015 Tamar won and I think that year Edurne,Elina,Elhaida,Polina and Nina deserved it more.This year I find Demy,Alma,Levina and Lindita more beautiful than her..But yeah what can we hope of them?Even Aram mp3 was the top 3 of the male model.

Hey. I don’t want to be the annoying reader, but somewhere in the article it says “Arstvik” and later on it says “Monday 27 April”. Sorry for mentioning these mistakes. I’m trying to help you guys out :’)

Anyway, I’m glad O’G3NE made it! My top women would be Anja, Alma and Miruna in no specific order 🙂

Colin

Demy, Kasia, Lucie, Miruna, Lindita and Alma are all still in the game, so it’s good. I am still puzzled by so many people voting Blanche, who is 17. I sincerely hope those people are around her age too. Also, Artsvik leading by this much… hmmm…

Aria

Also its completely unfair to Edgars vilums that he wasn’t provided a Solo spot in the male competition!! He’s got a slim tall body most suited to be a model and the wiwi panel didnt even include him.#Shame

Tijuana heh!! Lol

Its unfair that Martina has missed out.She should be provided the wildcard.Not fair that Armenians voting for their country rather than on possible appeal in the modelling world cost her a spot.
