Lilit for a lit show xbow

Seriously though, they need to get their staging right. The past 2 years, they've sent fantastic, well-crafted, well-sung songs, but the staging just drowns the songs. The staging is so empty that you forget how good the song is.

when did armenia become so BAD at staging? it was their entire damn thing. they advanced songs MUCH worse than qami and walking out on the strength of staging. what gives, armenia? you can do so much better. they need to hire whoever did oto's staging this year for next year.

as for artists, i actually wouldn't mind a return of depa evratesil. i didn't want qami to win AT ALL but it was a solid roster otherwise. i actually trust armenia to find stuff for a good NF, even if i don't trust their public to make the best choice. i don't know enough about armenian artists to have a say on internal selections, but armenia has usually been pretty great about them (including srbuk herself! she was just this year's sennek), so that's fine too. just... don't fuck it up in the netherlands. please. for me.

oto flopped because he didn't have the song. that staging was phenomenal. my brother was in the room when oto was performing and his initial reaction was "wow this looks amazing" and then a minute later he went "when will this END it's HORRIBLE" lol. if armenia can't go for big names like SJB anymore then they should go for that person indeed.

Probably to choose a song that doesn't make the viewers feel okay to let it pass by. 'Walking Out' feels too rushed and pushed, 'Qami' was not engaging at all, and 'Fly With Me' was confusing to say the least. Armenia clearly worked better with internal selections, but the song is mostly the issue.

''Qami'' was terrible and ''Fly with me'' deserved a better staging. :( Anyway i read somewhere that Armenia plan to do ''Depi Evratesil'' national for 2020 selection.

I don't know what was so great about some of our previous stagings -- 2013 was just as boring as Qami, and was a far worse song, and yet, Qami is one of our worst results...

Alaska49
9th June 2019, 19:02
times have changed i think that's all. lonely planet really was worse than qami but 2013 was still a time when not all countries went as hard as they do nowadays. semifinals weren't as competitive as they are now. i still didn't have armenia qualifying back then, but i also wasn't expecting both elitsa and valentina to be cruelly murdered even if in hindsight i really should have been.

I liked Qami and Walking out, but the semis were too strong. Walking out had a terrible staging too.

In 2013, semis were really bad and the countries prevailed with their diaspora. Lonely planet was the worst Armenian song.

"Fly with Me" was a good song and could have reached the top 15 but the staging was quite mediocre. 3 women and a pink background are not enough. "Qami" was bad it really had very low chances of qualifing no matter what staging they went for in Lisbon. "Walking Out" was really good if you ask me (it was my 7th place before the show) but the staging was downright HORRENDOUS. Couldn't they at least have some male dancers? Opening the show didn't help at all and that's why Armenia had its worst ever result. Armenia's songs most of the time are very good but no matter how good the song is it needs S-T-A-G-I-N-G. And they need to focus on that a lot.

I have mixed feelings about ::am recent entries, I loved Fly With Me but I disliked Qami and Walking Out (some considered this as a shock NQ, tbh I have never seen anything in this song since the beginning)...

I don't think their staging is that bad, but it's not good too. They need to change sth to have great results again.

«Fly With Me» had great staging imo but things needed to be happening during the less interesting parts of the song like «fly with me high oh high» etc...
Deserved better though, I voted for it but it came like last in our televote

BorisBubbles
13th June 2019, 09:30
It's the songs, tbh. They're not bad compositions in themselves, but they are very challenging to stage correctly.

And that includes Fly with me, tbh. It's a nice song and the staging IS good... but not for that song lol. Fly with me needed something more powerful to clinch everybody's attention. (Casuals largely didn't care for it either way).

Qami is too insipid to make exciting, but erecting a stone henge wasn't enough. Nemra would've been the better choice.

Walking out likewise is a very dark song about a subject casuals can't, or don't want to relate to. Its staging was a disaster, but like... you try making a song about spousal abuse appealing to the masses, lol.

Fuck, I was doing a little bit of research into this, and you're right. All of the well-known ones I could find either 1) are primarily about something else, 2) weave it in through metaphor so that the meaning can be easily ignored, or 3) are from the perspective of the abuser.

We always come last in Norway's televote no matter what we send -- even our most successful entries registered nothing with Norway's televote.

In fact, Norway and the UK are the only two countries (not counting Aze for obvious reasons) that have never given us points in the finals.

Aram, Iveta and Artsvik were the cherries on the top of the cake for me
All top 5 in their respective years perhaps, and I was maybe too hyped about «Fly With Me» at one point, thinking that it could medal at least

My favourite moment is when Armenia receives 12 points from Austria in 2014. Killed by kindness.

Iveta and Eva, as different as their entries were, dominated the decade for Armenia in my book. No wonder they ranked top 7 in the grand final. I voted for Iveta, who has an edge musically and visually for me. Everything about her package was perfect and impactful.

I also really liked Aram MP3 and Artsvik. Srbuk's effort was decent too, but it could have been better.

The rest didn't light my fire. I wasn't expecting to be so in tune with the team ranking.

Preuss
12th July 2019, 00:45
«Fly With Me» was a gem but I think that perhaps something more should’ve happened during the performance, especially during the «fly with me high oh high» parts
but I like the staging :D wished they’d mix it up perhaps a bit though but hey

BorisBubbles
12th July 2019, 09:45
Eh. Iveta is easily the best, Aram is easily the second best. Two very brave, innovative avant garde entries.

"Apricot stone" and "Fly with me" are good. The rest... Srbuk was a massive disappointment, "Qami" was a snore, Genealogy were a disaster (<3?), Emmy's voice reminds me of the sound geese make when they're being fattened for their foix gras and the fewer things said about "Homely Blahnet", the better.

It's not their best decade and hopefulyl they get it together.

For me, Armenia's main issue is that the songs have been underwhelming since 2011 and forward, 2007-2010 (in particular 2008-2010) remain the "golden years" for Armenia in ESC according to me. Artsvik had a decent entry, but something was missing, as far as a song goes Iveta's wasn't actually good imo, however she is a great performer with a striking look and the show was efficient and distracting enough to put focus away from the mediocre entry so I wasn't surprised it went pretty well in the end, now if Iveta would come back with an actual good song then Armenia could even be onto their first victory potentially but whoever chooses the songs for Armenia in the past decade clearly doesn't have very good taste or mediocre at best, like 2019, very mediocre song. So Armenia's problem is not necessary the chosen artists, rather the chosen entries because some of the acts that have been chosen are technically more talented than some from the "golden years", but the songs have been really meh.

Can Armenia involve the composers who were involved with "Not Alone", "LoveWave" and "Fly With Me" for 2020, please? :D

However, said it before, but Armenia never does well with us. I mean, we ranked "LoveWave" bottom five and the juries ranked it last. Like last. Dead last.

Oh I needed love wave definitely: one has to go to grab another beer at some point.:lol:

No offense - I respect different tastes in music. I just found it atrocious in every aspect. I kinda liked „love injected“ though. wasn‘t my favorite, but I found it ok.

RIP Iveta rumours ;) Wondering if they announce Depi Evratesil.

5th November 2019, 11:26
Hope that Depi Evratesil is not coming back, what a disastrous resume it has based on placements. It definitely destroyed Armenias reputation as a sure qualifier and top 10 candidate.

Biscuit02
5th November 2019, 12:13
Hopefully the exciting news are that they are going to announce the artist representing Armenia, I hope Depi Evratesil doesn't come back honestly, Armenia would be better off selecting their artist internally.

Kind of funny that there's less drama this year. Even a country like Spain went lowkey on announcements.
