Two shows have taken place, 20 acts have become ten and the stage is set for the grand final. Depi Evratesil 2018 has been full of surprises. The drama came in the first semi-final as Wiwi Jury favourite Tamar Kaprelian crashed out. The second semi-final promised to be a bloodbath but the big favourites survived. Now ten must become one.
In 2017 Artsvik brought a dramatic performance to Kyiv after winning the inaugural edition of Depi Evratesil. This year, the artists are competing with their own songs. There is a lot of variety in the grand final — Armenia has ten talented artists and three languages to choose from. The line-up includes everything from drag queens to balladeers.
Asmik Shiroyan and Sevak Khanagyan are two of the big favourites still in the mix. Asmik isn’t the only Depi Evratesil returnee — both Gevorg Harutyunyan and Amaliya Margaryan are also returning artists. They will all have to get past Mger Armenia, the self-proclaimed “winner” of Depi Evratesil, as well as the equally confident Kamil.
The grand final will take place on Sunday 25 February at 21:40 local time (that’s 17:40 GMT or 18:40 CET). Only one artist can represent Armenia in Lisbon and we want to know who you think it should be.
Listen to the ten finalists and vote for your favourite in our poll. As always, you can vote for as many acts as you like, but you can only vote once — so make it count!
