Will Sevak Khanagyan have what it takes to get Armenia over the line in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest?
Credit where it’s due to the Armenians, they’ve punched above their weight since joining the competition in 2006.
In that time, they’ve made the Grand Final all but once (2011) and didn’t participate the following year.
But in their eleven appearances in the competition thus far, they’ve placed top ten seven times. So they’re doing something very right.
In most of those years, however, they’ve chosen to perform their single either partly or wholly in English.
Not this year though… they’re breaking out 100% Armenian with the single ‘Qami’ (which means ‘Wind’ in English).
It’s a big, stirring ballad that should certainly get some votes and Sevak’s vocals are pretty incredible; we look forward to hearing him belt out some of these notes live on the night. (Amazing shot at the end of the clip below)
The former ‘Voice’ and ‘X Factor’ contestant will perform towards the end of the first semi final on May 08.
