Armenia’s national broadcaster has confirmed that the selection process for Rotterdam, Depi Evratesil, will take place on Saturday 15th February, with twelve acts expected to take part.
The competition will return as Armenia’s selection method for Eurovision following a year out, after the internal selection of Srbuk for Tel Aviv in 2019.
It is not currently known who will take part in the selection but recent posts across social media suggest that the participants have been confirmed and may merely be days away from being announced.
Depi Evratesil was first introduced as the Armenian selection for Eurovision 2017, where Artsvik won the competition and performed “Fly With Me” in Kyiv. A larger, expanded version of the contest was held the following year as Sevak Khanagyan won the competition with the Armenian-language track “Qami”, failing to qualify for the Eurovision final.
Armenia’s absence from the Eurovision final since 2017 will mean that hopes are high for a return in 2020. Will any of the acts be strong enough to bring Armenia to the top? We don’t have long to wait to find out!
