As for Dorians, their supposed entry for 2012 contest wasn't good, and I think Armenia got better options than this band.

Armenian public broadcaster ARMTV has the intention to return to the Eurovision Song Contest next year in Sweden. According to them, “Armenia in Eurovision 2013 will be on the list of participants”.



Back on March 7th, the Armenian public broadcaster confirmed the country’s withdrawal from Eurovision 2012. Jon Ola Sand, executive supervisor of the competition, declared then: ”Despite the efforts of the EBU and the Host Broadcaster to ensure a smooth participation for the Armenian delegation in this year’s Contest, circumstances beyond our control lead to this unfortunate decision.”

Armenia debuted in Eurovision in 2006. Their best result to date was 4th in 2008 with Sirusho and the song ‘Qele qele’. Last year, Emmy did not manage to qualify for the final.

Ok, let's see

1.- ¡IT WOULD BE A THIRD SUICIDE IF ARMENIA SEND EMMY AGAIN! (1º Emmy at 2011, 2º 2012 Withdraw)

2.- I'll die if at February/March, ARMTV say that SIRUSHO will represent Armenia again! ... This time to the VICTORY!

3.- Armenia had the chance to win if only they had sent Lilith Hohvanissyan "Ax" instead of translating it to Emmy "Hi" ._.
Let's compare it:

@A-Lister: Layana is very interesting artist too. She is more folk than pop folk, I love that instruments used in the 1st song, but it would be better if it wasn't become uptempo from the half song onward, from that time it reminds me of some Albanian folk songs I've heard (it's not a bad thing surely, I liked these songs). It's still a nice song overall, though! :D

I agree... what's wrong with their 2010 entry though?

Armenia had a working formula for them in ESC, why change that? And it's not as if all songs they sent are that similar (even if the majority included ethnic elements). And even if the opera cr*p would include ethnic elements, I still don't see it helping.

2008 and 2011 = dislike
2007 = ok, but forgettable song
2006 = would sound better if it was in Armenian, because his English accent wasn't good at all. It had good instrumentation. I didn't like the choreography, though
2009 = I don't know if I like or dislike this one. Like 2006, nice instrumentation, but I think it was too "folk" for my taste (in a bad way, we call this "villageness" here if this makes any sense). And I got the same feelings for Moldova 2009. Two songs that I haven't decided yet if I like or dislike them! :|

Well, here we disagree obviously. The only Armenian entries I dislike to date are 2006 and 2011 (although 2006 could have been a bit better if sung in Armenian I guess). 2007 has grown on me, but it also should benefit from being 100% in Armenian.

My favorite Armenian entry to date is 2008 though, and I love 2009 aswell :) 2010 comes third on my rank of Armenian entries.

I'm no Opera fan but I'm not disregarding him just because of that. If Armenia can somehow do a Sarah Brightman Pop/Opera that is actually good (it seems nobody has been able to pull it off all the way) I am all for it. Slovenia 2007, Sweden 2009 & France 2011 just weren't good enough.

Slovenia 2007 is the only one I like out of those, maybe because of the ethno influences there. I liked Sweden 2009 initially but can't stand it now. France 2011 just meh.

Slovenia 2007 is the only one I like out of those, maybe because of the ethno influences there.

I do not think Boom-boom was so bad, sure not worse than a lot of other entries in 2011. Kind of silly yet unpretentious and catchy fun (much better than trashy pop-crap that takes itself seriously; Estonia comes to my mind). This being said, it is still the worst of all Armenian songs so far IMHO.

But a song in the middle between PreGomesh and Qele, Qele with both Ethnic possibly similar to Qele Qele and Dance or w/e to PreGomesh could be very interesting and pssoibly could hit the Nail Perfect.

The juries want wailing ballad voices, everything else is lesser in their world (they don't even seem to understand that sometime less is more and different type of voices fits different type of genres and performances better than others). I mean take Gaitana in 2012 for instance, she slaughtered that entry live. Yes she could sing, but it was just TOO much... but the juries loved it not even caring about the fact that Gaitana made the song tuneless with her over-wailing. Imo juries care very little about the songs and how they are treated, over-singing is a good thing in their book regardless of if it fits the entries or not... they live in the fantasy that this is The Voice of Europe... but forget that this is a contest of original songs and not showcasing voices with singing covers.

And yes, I totally agree Sirusho's performance wasn't that bad. Sure it wasn't something excellently well done, but it definetely was good enough to make respect to the great quality and catchy song that "Qele qele" was, so I definetely think it could finish in the top 5 in the juries.

Except for their debut and "Boom Boom", I think Armenia have been good at each try.

Yep. Can't believe they decided to make a NF after all because they had too many good songs + they extend the deadline... It seems that they expected something that they could'nt achieve, otherwise they could have chosen something in what they have... It looks like a call for more songs because they don't have any decent !

I have a feeling that Armenia will win ESC this year..mostly it is just a feeling, but I have a lot of things pointing to that direction, like since Azerbaijan won in 2011, then it is Armenias turn now, Turkey is not entering which will let the Armenian diaspora be stronger and these rumours about Sirusho are making me believe that if she gets chosen, then Armenia will be huge faves in Malmö. :P

But depends of course of the song..which may be strong since they want to make a good comeback I suppose. ;)

Dorians is a decent rock band but if the song would be like a propaganda,then they sink(like it happened in Apricot Stone).
But if they really listen to their hearts,then we could see a good song.But this ''good song'' would be a rock-ballad for me :D

In Turkish forums and sites,that was a big issue firstly.And Apricot Stone's lyrics sounded like propaganda to us,especially this part:
Now I see the northern stars
Shining brightly in the storm
And I’ve got an avatar
Of my love to keep me warm
Now I’m not afraid of violent winds
They may blow
They can’t win

May the winter stay away
From my harvest night and day
May God bless and keep my cherished fruit
Grow my tree up to the sky,
Once I waved my home goodbye
I just wanna go back to my roots

But this is just the Turkish point of view,these lyrics may sound different to you :)

And how did "Apricot Stone" sink? It ended up at #7, pretty good position.

Anyways can we stop with the politics? Turks and Azeris will always try to add some in the Armenian thread, and vice versa. We know the dispute already, and quite frankly Armenians have their right of concern aswell considering historical reasons...

Never the less, a song should be able to include some other things than just "love and dance". It might reference reality, but then what? It's just hypothetical. Propaganda? Nah...

Anyways... as for Gor/Dorians I'm skeptical ... I really don't like the choice so I hope the song will atleast be good.

From Turkish point of view you are probably right. I know that all today Eastern Anadolia was part of middle age Armenian Kingdom and maybe thats the reason why Turks think that Apricot Stone have propaganda lyrics.

Personally I like that song very much, cause that lyrics associated me on this Balkan area and recent history here

That's because you've been socialized from an early age to approach anything related to Armenia and Armenians with extreme mistrust and suspicion. I can do the same with your country's song from that very year:

"I could see that this could be fate
I could love you more than they hate
Doesn't matter who they will blame
We can beat them at their own game

See? You might not have thought of it that way, but if someone applies the same race-based paranoia, you end up with something completely different than what exists in real life.

He is no doubt a great singer, but I hope he will leave the cheesy glam-metal spiced hardrock vocal at home. This kind of singing still seem to be popular in eastern Europe (and the US), but I'm pretty allergic to it in any form. It is in most cases a fake emotional singing style without any real content or feeling. Comes out too pubertal and pretentious perhaps? Good male metal singers are extremely rare BMO and it's usually easier (and fancier) to front with a great female singer (Americans will not agree though). So, a clean straight voice please, perhaps with some Armenian spice. :) I think Gor Sujyan have a great voice, but balance on the cheesy border. There's no need to do orgasmoscreaming all the time.

Examples of great clean male metal vocals are found in Kamelot (i.e. Roy Khan).

But this is all my reflections of course (not want to offend anyone).
