The music video for Armenia’s Eurovision 2018 entry will be released on March 21st.
The official Eurovision YouTube channel announced yesterday that the music video for “Qami” will be released next Wednesday. It has been speculated that the song has undergone a revamp since it won its selection a few months ago.
The singer behind “Qami” is Sevak Khanagyan from Metsavan. The singer first came onto the music scene when he took part in Glavnaya Stsena, the Russian version of The X Factor, in 2015. He was eliminated in the quarterfinals. He then went on to compete in The Voice of Russia but was again eliminated. He had more success a year later, however, as he won the seventh season of The X Factor Ukraine. He later returned to his home country to become a coach on The Voice of Armenia.
Sevak Khanagyan will represent Armenia at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal in May. He was chosen after he won Depi Evratesil 2018, the Armenian selection show, with his song “Qami”.
Armenia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006 and has participated every year since, excluding 2012. Armenia’s best results came in 2008 and 2014 when they finished 4th in the final. They have only once failed to qualify for the final, in 2011, when Emmy finished in 12th with “Boom Boom”. She was 1 point away from qualifying for the final. At the 2017 contest in Kyiv, Armenia was represented by Artsvik and the song “Fly with Me”, which finished in 18th place in the final with 79 points.
