The countdown is now entering it’s final stages, with less than two weeks to go before the the Norwegian capital Oslo plays host to the first semi final for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. As always, we’ll be expecting the big frocks, the big numbers, the chord changes, the frocks… Once again this year, the competition is divided into two semi finals (May 25 and 27) and the grand final (May 29).
Armenia will compete in the second semi-final on May 27.
ARMENIA : Eva Rivas – Apricot Stone
One thing’s for sure, there’s a swag of youngsters taking to the stage in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest – and the Armenian entry is no exception. Eva Rivas is just 22 years of age, but has already squeezed plenty into her life’s musical journey, winning the Armenian Song Of The Year back in 2005. The great thing about ‘Apricot Stone’ is that it continues to build – from a quasi-classical piece into a jaunty pop track and into a great chorus. And we thought she bears more than a passing resemblance to our own Tina Arena. Kinda liking this.
