All week Armenia’s AMPTV has been gifting us with the songs that will compete in Depi Evratesil 2018 — its national selection for Eurovision. The twenty tracks cut across genre (emotional ballads, upbeat dance, ethnic pop and disco bangers) and language (English, Armenian, Spanish). The artists are as diverse. Among them are a Eurovision alum (Tamar Kaprelian), a Depi Evratesil veteran (Asmik Shiroyan), singers from Armenia’s vast diaspora (including Sevak) and one very animated drag queen (Kamil). Armenia really has taken things to another level this year.
In the weeks ahead we’ll see each of the acts perform on the Yerevan stage, giving us a chance to assess their live vocals and whether their songs translate to television. But for now we want to know: Which artist and song is your early favourite to win?
