  1. Rua Haldor Lægreid Impersonator

    The songs for Depi Evratesil 2020 have been released and my, what a bunch they are. The final is scheduled for the 15th of February.

    Agop - Butterflies
    Arthur Aleq - Heaven
    Athena Manoukian - Chains On You
    ERNA - Life Faces
    Eva Rida - No Love
    Gabriel Jeeg - It's Your Turn
    Karina EVN - Why?
    Music Hayk - What It Is To Be In Love
    Miriam Baghdassarian - Run Away
    Sergey & Nickolay Harutyunov - Ha, Take A Step
    TOKIONINE - Save Me
    Vladimir Arzumanyan - What's Going On, Mama?

    The Recap (I'd point you in this direction, personally.)

    Yikes, I can see why Armenia usually goes for an internal selection. If I had to pick one, I'd go for TOKIONINE.

  2. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    Man, you weren't kidding :S I don't even know where to begin, this was so bad. We have some of the most basic beats and melodies, with lyrics written by a third grader and performers who seems rejects of a small town high school's musical. It's endearing how you can feel some of them are really trying, but sadly still fail spectacularly.

    I agree with Rua that, gun to my head, TOKIONINE is their best best, it is somewhat savageable. Other than that, maybe Agop or Arthur Aleq, but with a hell of a lot of work (read, complete rewrites and singing classes every waking moment). Pity, Armenia has managed some OK entries in the past.
  3. James ... and his things xD

    This seems all just crap, even the one you both mentioned. I think I find Athena the least disturbing from the ones I heard.
    You never know how it will be live though.

    Athena also stood out (BIG word) for me, at least her song did, but I realise I forgot to mention her above. I still think that, while her act shows some promise in a dire field, it would need a lot of work if it is to get anywhere at all.

    Athena has won the ticket to Rotterdam with her song 'Chains On You' - she won an incredible 118 of the 120 jury points up for grabs and came 3rd in the televote.

    Oh dear.

    How could this song get almost all of jury votes?! She needs to improve herself a lot until May because her live performance sounded really awful to me too.
