After securing gold in 2021 and then silver in 2022, Armenia are back at Junior Eurovision 2023 with the aim of claiming yet another medal. This time, the country’s hopes fall on the group Yan Girls, who will be performing “Do It My Way” in Nice.

Armenia in Junior Eurovision 2023: Yan Girls with “Do It My Way”

Yan Girls are a five-piece girl group formed of Nane, Nensi, Kamilla, Syuzana and Aida. They were internally selected by Armenian broadcaster AMPTV to represent the country at Junior Eurovision 2023.

The girls all knew each other before forming the group, as their mothers are best friends.

With “Do It My Way”, the girls have taken inspiration from their favourite K-pop artists. They plan on bringing the vibrant and striking genre to the contest with a slight Armenian twist.

Outside of music, the girls are big animal lovers. Between the five of them, they look after ten fish, three dogs, a turtle, a hamster, and a talking parrot called Jacko.

What do the “Do It My Way” lyrics mean?

“I have to be myself and I won’t be shy
Boom, now I run this room and your eyes are on me”

Despite being a relatively short song at 2:20 minutes long, Yan Girls still fill their entry with an important message about staying true to yourself.

Nane, Nensi, Kamilla, Syuzana and Aida are all confident individuals who aren’t afraid of ruffling a few feathers in order to handle situations in the way they feel is necessary.

Even if other people try to stop them, the group is prepared to stay strong in their values and do things their way, as they state in the chorus:

“I’mma do it my way,
And I’m breaking the rules,
No matter what they say,
Ain’t nothing I can’t do!

“Do It My Way” lyrics — Yan Girls (Armenia JESC 2023)

Lyrics: Maléna and Vahram Petrosyan, Music: tokionine

Armenian text

Էս երգը քեզ տանելույա,
Ու տեղից քեզ վեր հանելույա,
Մեր ուժից հիմա հողը կդողա,
Baby now you are in my area!

Բարի – բարի չստացվեց էս երգը մի տեսակ,
Բայց արի ու արի ու արի ու տես ուր հասանք,
Օ – աաաա (տես ես ուր հասանք), օ – աաաա:

I’m too cool to be a fool,
So don’t you mess with me!

I’mma do it my way,
And I’m breaking the rules,
No matter what they say,
Ain’t nothing I can’t do!

Չեմ սիրում ես չա-չա-չա, էդ իմ ոճը չի,
Ես պիտի լինեմ ոնց կամ ու չեմ ամաչի,
Boom, now I run this room and your eyes are on me,
Wroom, move it with the groove, movin’ with your body.
I’ll take me to the stop, never gonna’ stop,
I’m number one I’m never gonna’ lose!

Դե տանը մի մնա, տանը մի մնա, տանը մի մնա, դե արի դուրս,
Օ – աաաա (դե արի դուրս), օ – աաաա:

Կամ արի փոխենք էս խաղը,
Կամ մի խանգարի:

I’mma do it my way,
And I’m breaking the rules,
No matter what they say,
Ain’t nothing I can’t do!

English translation

This song will take over you,
And will make you move,
The ground will shake from our power,
Baby now you are in my area!

This song didn’t turn out too kind,
But look at us and where we’re now,
O-aaa (look at us now), o-aaa.

I’m too cool to be a fool,
So don’t you mess with me!

I’mma do it my way,
And I’m breaking the rules,
No matter what they say,
Ain’t nothing I can’t do!

I don’t like cha-cha-cha, that’s not my style,
I have to be myself and I won’t be shy,
Boom, now I run this room and your eyes are on me,
Wroom, move it with the groove, movin’ with your body,
I’ll take me to the stop, never gonna’ stop,
I’m number one I’m never gonna’ lose!

So don’t stay at home, don’t stay at home, don’t stay at home – come outside,
O-aaa (come outside), o-aaa.

Let’s play another game,
Or stop bothering me!

I’mma do it my way,
And I’m breaking the rules,
No matter what they say,
Ain’t nothing I can’t do!

I cannot stand K-Pop as a genre so it’s difficult for me to really get behind this entry, but that’s not to say that I think this is a bad entry by any means. From the limited knowledge on music that I can grasp, the song does what it wants to do, and that is give us a compelling visuals with 5 confident characters in full sync. I try to see the good in this song and I completely get why some fans adore it, but I really don’t like this genre. It’s extremely monotonous and does extremely little to… Read more »

This is a quality entry. With a K~pop feel production this is a pop song that would and should perform well outside of the contest. What worries me is the judges always seem to go for shall we say child like songs with one exception Armenia last win. I know its junior but this song really is good and i hope the juries don’t penalize the song because it sounds so “grown up”

Full package, if performed very well it must make an impact. I feel PERSONALLY it’s a heavy sound for these little girls that doesn’t really fit their 12 years old appearances. It’s great to have idols at this age and it’s normal to want to imitate them in their bedrooms or in front of a mirror but on an international stage idk it’s another thing. The lyrics inciting the children to break the rules I’m not really fan. It’s really well produced, the visuals in the MV are great, there’s a clear concept, the end is entertaining so I wish… Read more »

Wheb you look at YouTube top 16, Armenia is not the ultimate favorite. It’s more of a close race between a lot of countries.
This being said, Armenia is my personnal favorite with Germany.

this is objectively the strongest entry this year from production to visuals to catchiness. i still prefer germany but this would be a worthy winner.
