Inga and Anush Arshakyan sisters known for their singing which they claim is a mix of modern and traditional Armenian music, might represent Armenia at the 54th Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Moscow. The whole thing will be decided on an SMS voting that will be held after a live show on Armenia’s Public TV on February 14, to choose the song that will represent Armenia at Eurovision 2009.
Another candidate is Mher – a Russian-Armenian singer who represented Armenia on “New Wave 2008” music contest last year.
There were rumours that Arame might be one of the other choices, but the singer told MaxLiberty – he hasn’t even presented a bid.
Inga and Anoush Arshakyan’s remain one of the most serious contenders. “Sharm” media holding has taken over as their producer, and added a little bit of rock to the mix. However, the girls remain as irritating as ever.
Surely I’m not objective. I can’t stand Inga and Anoush whining and barking, pretending to be singing and kept postponing posting about this, although I knew about the song and rumours for some time now.
However, having received an invitation to join a Facebook group supporting the girls at Eurovision, I came to understand, that like it or not, they might be representing Armenia and I’d have to support them – despite this obviously poor choice. After all – Eurovision is strangely enough, a really big thing in Armenia, and there aren’t very many alternatives to them either.
Anyways, here’s the song that might represent Armenia at Eurovision – see for yourselves.
