Armenia’s Iveta Mukuchyan had a pretty good performance last night at the Eurovision 2016 international song contest, which helped Armenia qualify for the finals, where Iveta will be performing along with representatives of other semi-final winners: Austria, Azerbaijan, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Hungary, Malta, The Netherlands and Russia.
Iveta appeared to have some technical issues at the start, she had to adjust an earphone at some point (watch 1:12 minute in the video above), but she looked hot and the audience loved it. And she sounded ok too… not exactly my favorite type of singing though.
As is often the case, this year’s Eurovision was also used by Armenia to bring in some politics. Iveta Mukuchyan appeared to the Qualifiers Press Conference bearing a Karabakh flag. When a foreign journalist asked why she chose to bear one of the most politically charged flags in Europe, Iveta responded: “My thoughts are with my motherland. I just want Peace on borders, Armenia wants Peace. And this is why I wrote this song. I just want to spread love waves.”
PS: And one last thing — I just love these special effects on stage! :))
