Armenia 2018 - buffoonery, riggery and straight-up tomfoolery

Discussion in 'Eurovision' started by constantino, Jan 19, 2018.

  1. The Armenian national selection Depi Evratesil is back for 2018, but with a very exciting format change. This change is very simple - rather than simply imitating The Voice to select the artist to represent Armenia at the Eurovision, this year the contestants will be competing with their Eurovision entry already written, produced and chosen.

    The contest can now be compared to the internationally followed and popular Melodi Grand Prix (Norway), Melodifestivalen (Sweden) and Eesti Laul (Estonia). The difference? The calibre is far higher. I honestly love or like most of the 20 songs, but here are my highlights:

    Armenian Adrijana (@Island):



    Super pretty, one of the better ballads from the national selections:



    Iveta Mukuchyan does Sigala:



    This has absolutely NO right to pop off this much, Despacito found muerto!



    Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before, unafraid to reference or not reference, put it in a blender, shit on it, vomit on it, eat it, give birth to it:



    Armenia always come to play and I honestly believe that they have a win in them, and that they deserve a win. Europe better watch out.

    Poison (A Wig, A Wig) is easily the best song of the bunch (and most distinctive too). Polished and current without sacrificing personality. Slaymar Godprelian!

    What I want to know is how apparently no one noticed "Angel" is just sis Artsvik wearing glasses.



    Dddd I wanna know what you were thinking of while writing this that made you write Slovenia.

  5. They’re continuing to serve bops and I couldn’t be happier. All of their potential entries sound at the very least good.

    Apparently, Asmik is more popular in Armenia, but Tamar is more popular with international fans...but it seems that any of the top 3 could take it. Then again, the OGAE flopped when predicting the results for Eurovision last year so who knows...
     
  7. Armenia was my second fave last year so perhaps I should check some of these out...

  9. Can't wait to see which song Christer Björkman inevitably decides to try and sabotage with his jury votes like he did at the French final.

  18. In case you're interested in watching the first semi final, it begins tonight at 6.15 GMT and will be streaming on the Depi Evratesil official youtube channel.

    I have plans tonight which I may well cancel, but most of the good acts are in semi 2 on Thursday anyway so we'll see. I'll post the stream link either way.
     
  19. I'm ready.
