Emmy who represented Armenia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011, is looking at returning to the contest next year in Rotterdam.
Emmy (Emma Bejanyan) has asked her fans on Instagram, whether she should take part in the Armenian selection process for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. The singer previously represented Armenia at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011. Over 75% of her fans have backed the idea of the singer competing in Depi Evratesil 2020.
The singer represented Armenia in Dusseldorf with the song “Boom Boom”. Emmy was internally selected by the Armenian national broadcaster, with her song then selected by the public. She became the first Armenian artist to fail to qualify for the final, finishing 12th in her semi-final with 54 points.
Depi Evratesil has been used as the Armenian national final on two previous occasions. In 2017, it was used to find the artist for Eurovision with the song being internally selected at a later date. In 2018, artists were able to submit original songs. After Sevak Khanagyan failed to qualify for the final of Eurovision 2018, an internal selection was used for 2019.
In 2019, Srbuk was internally selected to represent Armenia in Tel Aviv. She finished 16th in the second semi-final with “Walking Out”, bringing Armenia their worst result to date in the contest.
