She’s our queen and she’s still wearing that crown. Srbuk is representing Armenia at Eurovision 2019. Her song “Walking Out” tells the tale of a woman leaving behind a toxic relationship. Srbuk performed at Eurovision in Concert over the weekend and took the time to catch up with William in Amsterdam. You can check out our Srbuk interview below.

Srbuk interview — Eurovision in Concert 2019

The beautiful Srbuk is certainly embracing the parallels drawn between her name and coffee chain Starbucks. Last week, she tweeted out a photo of her coffee cup. Srbuk found the comparison to be interesting and creative and will be walking out of Amsterdam with a double shot caramel macchiato in hand.

We also asked Srbuk about representing Armenia and what being Armenian meant to her. Srbuk is honoured to be Armenian because of the hospitable and kind nature of her people. Drawing on her roots, Srbuk has spoken with artists such as Iveta Mukuchyan and Aram Mp3 as part of her Eurovision preparation.

“Walking Out” — Srbuk

Srbuk discussed the message of “Walking Out”, revealing the personal nature of the narrative. She connects this to the music video by drawing reserves of energy after the men knock her around. The concept of the music video was to show “how powerful and strong a woman can be”. Therefore, Srbuk drew on this energy when filming the music video to tell her tale.

Srbuk didn’t reveal whether or not a similar concept would be employed for the staging in Tel Aviv. She told us to expect to see a strong woman on stage and that will be the cornerstone of her performance. We’re excited to hear this lioness roar.

Armenia will open the second semi-final in Tel Aviv. Srbuk will start the show, followed by Ireland’s Sarah McTernan.

What do you think of “Walking Out”? Will Srbuk take Armenia back to the grand final? Are you ordering a vanilla latte with a double shot of Srbuk? Let us know in the comments below.

I absolutely love her. She’s kind, genuine and a strong person who has persevered through a lot of hardship. I teared up when she spoke about her life’s hardship and her father’s passing a few months ago on Eurovision Diary.

Also as a side note, very happy about the new HODs of Armenia. They are young and energetic and unlike their predecessor, are not a “part-time politican wannabes”.

Did you watch the video? She said she started learning English a month ago. Anyways, i kinda feel bad for native English speakers who only speak English, expect non-native English speakers to speak English and dismiss them when they don’t.
I love the opportunity to listen to the Armenian language, such a treat. She has a beautiful speaking voice too.

She doesn’t need to speak English at all to be a complete and fulfilled and successful person. The broadcaster provided an interpreter for her. That’s enough for her to send her message across.
