Armenia: Details about the internal selection, just before the official announcements!

According to hraparak.am, two singers are in contention to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. The outlet revealed them – their names are Rosa Linn and Saro Gevorgyan.

Pursuant to the rumours, Rosa Linn’s song was written by herself, the team of Tamar Kaprelian worked on the arrangement. The singer is signed to Warner Chappell Music and she’s part of Nvak Collective.

Saro’s song was written by Tokionine. The songwriter previously wrote ‘Walking Out’ by Srbuk, ‘Why’ and the JESC 2021 winning song ‘Qami Qami’. His song is reportedly called ‘I’m falling for you’ (or ‘Dance’). It’s techno, reminiscent of The Weeknd songs.

A song was also sent by Athena Manoukian, but she was eliminated in the first stage of the internal selection. Rumours also tell that Gor Sujyan (Dorians), Artem Valter (he revamped Athena’s ‘Chains On You’) and Miriam (she took part in DE 2020) submitted songs but were eliminated later as well.

Who will be the chosen one? Let’s wait for the official announcement!

Armenia: Armenian media reports that Rosa Linn will represent them in Turin!

A couple of hours ago, it was revealed by Hraparak.am that Rosa Linn will represent Armenia at Eurovision Song Contest 2022 which will take place in Turin, Italy. According to reports, despite the fact that the favourites for the race were three names, the channel chose a newcomer for the competition. Based on the rumours, Saro Gevorgyan and Rosa Linn were in the final shortlist. Rosa Linn is the one who got selected and in fact the song and her name will be officially announced in about a month.

Who is Rosa Linn?

Rosa Linn (Rosa Kostanyan) is a 21 years old singer living and working in Vanadzor, whom the American “Flaunt” magazine called the top female music producer in Armenia. Her debut song is a collaboration with the famous singer Kiira. She is one of the first artists of  Nvak Collective, pronounced (“nuh-vaak”, which means music in Armenian) a US-based record label. Nvak Collective was Co-Founded by the representative of Armenia at Eurovision 2015, American-Armenian singer-songwriter, Tamar Kaprelian and record producer, Alex Salibian.  Her style is characterized as a mix of 80s and 90s alternative indie pop. Her latest single titled “King” counts over 200 thousand views on YouTube and is a representative sample of the sound she stands for.

It should be reminded that “Eurovision” will take place in Turin, Italy, on May 10, 12 and 14. The representative of Armenia will perform in the second half of the first semifinal.

Last year, Armenia did not participate in the contest due to the post-war situation, lack of time and other objective reasons, and in 2020 the Greek-Armenian singer Athena Manukyan was our country’s delegate, but the contest was canceled due to the coronavirus.

Armenia: Here’s some exclusive information about the internal selection!

Armenia returns to the Eurovision Song Contest this year, after being forced to abstain last year due to dramatic developments in Nagorno-Karabakh and after its recent victory at Junior Eurovision 2021. Three artists are in the run to represent the country in Turin, according to local media, with Eurovisionfun giving you more information.

The artists participating in the internal closed selection, which Armenia is holding for Eurovision 2022, will have to submit their candidate songs on the country’s public television by January 31st. Big favourites according to what is said in the media, but also according to our information are the winner of the New Wave Festival 2021 Saro Gevorgyan, the representative of Armenia in Eurovision 2020 that was cancelled Athena Manoukian and the drag queen Kamil!

Athena Manoukian 
Athena Manoukian, who lives and works in Greece, but is of Armenian descent from her father, has already submitted her song. According to our exclusive information, this is a song signed and written by the songwriters of El Diablo and it is quite reminiscent in style of Stromae’s Alors On Dense.

Saro Gevorgyan
Saro Gevorgyan is in the recording stage of his own participation. By the summer, Saro had hinted that after his victory at the New Wave Festival, the most important music event for the countries of Eastern Europe, he would try to represent Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest. Philipp Kirkorov even reinforced these rumors, saying that Saro should participate in Eurovision 2022.

The rumors are coming true, since after the meeting of the young artist with Dimitris Kontopoulos in Moscow a few days ago, now as mentioned in the local press, the song with which he will claim the ticket of Armenia to Turin is being recorded.

The song according to our information is a dynamic ballad, which highlights the range of Saro’s voice, with a melody that easily stays in the listener’s head.

Kamil

Arsen Gryogoryan or the drag queen he plays, Kamil, may be the outsider, but they also claim to represent Armenia in the competition. In 2018, Kamil participated in Depi Evratesil, occupying the fourth place with the song Puerto Rico. Their participation is expected to be unconventional like all their songs.

Armenia participates in the second half of the first semi-final of Eurovision 2022, hoping to be in the final for the first time since 2017!

Дрим Тим: Все о подготовке команды к конкурсу в Турине!

Димитрис Контопулос сегодня уже в Москве вместе с Илиасом Кокотосом. Там они, конечно же, встретятся с Филиппом Киркоровым и проведут много времени в студии, доделывая или готовя заявки, которые будут представлены на Евровидении в этом году.

Россия

Как уже неоднократно заявлял Филипп Киркоров, Dream Team будет представлять Россию на предстоящем конкурсе. Общественное российское телевидение пока хранит молчание о своих намерениях, однако эта поездка не может не иметь отношения к подготовке страны к Евровидению.

Уже ходят слухи о различных именах, среди которых присутствуют такие артисты, как Клава Кока и Александр Панайотов. Eurovisionfun стало известно, что Dream Team отправила более одной песни каналу “Россия 1” и сейчас ожидает ответа от них.

В России, где сегодня празднуется Рождество, любят объявлять все в последнюю минуту. Напоминаем, что в прошлом году буквально в пять часов было объявлено о проведении национального финала, без участия Little Big, о чем вы впервые прочитали на Eurovisionfun.

Пока ожидается окончательная запись этих песен. Все начнет двигаться вперед, как только будет сделано официальное объявление.

Армения

Саро Геворкян, который находится на пике своей карьеры, является одним из фаворитов, чтобы представить Армению на масштабном песенном конкурсе. Недавно он стал победителем “Новой волны”, где удивил членов жюри вокальными способностями.

Общественное телевидение Армении после недавней победы на Детском Евровидении еще ничего не объявило, однако по слухам из Еревана, страна проведет внутренний отбор, аналогичный тому, что было у ERT.

Согласно информации на нашем сайте, ожидается встреча Саро в Москве с Филиппом Киркоровым, Димитрисом Контопулосом и Элиасом Кокотосом для работы над песней, с которой молодой артист будет претендовать на то, чтобы представить Армению в Турине.

Греция

Димитрис Контопулос любит делать окончательное сведение(микширование) песен в одной из лучших студий звукозаписи в Москве, VI Sound Studios, при содействии Андрея Коноплева.

Учитывая тот факт, что Аманда скоро поедет в Грецию для съемок видеоклипа, можно утверждать, что окончательный микс песни Греции возможно состоится именно в VI Sound Studios.

Armenia: One of these 4 artists is likely to represent the country in Turin!

Armenia is quiet as per usual and will probably reveal its entry at the last moment. However, according to the speculations and rumours, one of these 4 artists/bands is likely to represent Armenia in the 2022 Contest which will be held in Turin, Italy. Their names are – Ladaniva, Saro Gevorgyan, Athena Manoukian, Brunette.

Ladaniva is a multicultural band creating world music with a fresh touch of Armenian folk and other traditional forms, such as maloya, Balkan, reggae, Arabic, African. The group was founded in October 2019 by Armenian singer Jacqueline Baghdasaryan and French multi-instrumentalist Louis Thomas. Ladaniva is very popular among Armenians. During the tough times, the only thing that would bring happiness to Armenians all over the world was their single ‘Kef Chilini’. Ladaniva would be a fascinating and outstanding choice to represent the country and could easily be in the run to win the televoting in Italy this year.

Saro Gevorgyan is a talented singer and songwriter. In 2016, Saro Gevorgyan took part in the Depi Evratesil show, the Armenian national selection for ESC 2017, where he got into Aram MP3’s team. In 2019, he participated in the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv as the backing vocalist of Armenia’s participant Srbuk. In 2021, he won the New Wave competition in Sochi, becoming the third participant to bring victory to Armenia in the entire history of its participation. He amazed with his fabulous vocals such big names as Philipp Kirkorov, Dimitris Kontopoulos, Dimash and etc. Saro is very close to the delegation and lately we’ve heard a famous Armenian artist Erik Karapetyan say that Saro is a future Eurovision winner. He could bring an amazing result to Armenia with a modern and emotional ballad!

Athena Manoukian is a Greek-Armenian singer and songwriter. She’s the biggest favourite of eurofans all around the world to represent Armenia in the contest this year. Athena won the Armenian National Selection in 2020 with her song ‘Chains On You’ which automatically became Armenia’s entry for the contest which got cancelled later. Lately, she went to Armenia and as she had mentioned, that trip had something to do with Eurovision. Athena is capable of getting an amazing result with something as modern and catchy as her 2020 entry!

Brunette hails from Yerevan, Armenia. She’s part of Nvak (a non-profit organisation that nurtures artists who live in countries experiencing social, political and/or cultural turmoil) which was founded by Tamar Kaprelian (Armenia ESC 2015, Depi Evratesil 2018). She’s very close with Saro Gevorgyan. Brunette was also rumoured for Depi Evratesil 2020, but unfortunately she wasn’t on the list. This year she’s once again rumoured to be one of the 4 main candidates to fly the Armenian flag in Turin. With a high-quality modern and catchy song the newcomer could possibly bring one of Armenia’s best results if not the best to the country.

The minority of Armenians are also claiming that the winner of the first edition of The Masked Singer Armenia, Erik Karapetyan, Sona Rubenyan and Ani Kristi could be in the run as well. Sadly, there’s no certain information about Armenia but it definitely could arrive later.

Armenia 2022: Saro hints at possible Eurovision participation

Armenian singer Saro Gevorgyan took his Instagram to hint a possible Eurovision participation.  However he did not go as far as confirming that Armenian broadcaster AMPTV internally selected him for Turin.  In any case, the singer seems very interested to represent Armenia in the European competition.

Saro Gevorgyan shared on his Instagram stories a video where we can see Armenian singer Erik Karapetyan.  As a New Wave winner and X-factor jury, Karapetyan is a well known name in the music industry in his country.  In the video shared by Saro, Erik Karapetyan seems to be talking about the Armenian national selection when he says:

Saro is the winner of New Wave and the future winner of Eurovision

Saro shared this comment with his audience.  Nevertheless, he stopped short from confirming his participation on Eurovision 2022.

Saro Gevorgyan won the 2021 edition of New Wave.  He was one of the backing vocalist of Srbuk at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv.  Furthermore, as a winner of New Wave Saro has closed relations with Philipp Kirkorov.  This increases the chances of him being the Armenian representative in the near future.
