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.

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.
Had to fix it ??

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.
