After two busy semi-finals and one grand finale of Depi Evratesil 2018, Armenia decided Sevak Khanagyan is going to be flying to Lisbon for Eurovision Song Contest 2018. The winner was decided with a 50% combination of televoting and jury votes; Khanagyan took first place in both the jury and the televoting portion of the results. The ten acts which performed in the final were:
- Sevak Khanagyan – Qami (our eventual winner)
- Gevorg Harutyunyan – Stand Up
- Lusine Mardanyan – If You Don’t Walk Me Home
- Kamil Show – Puerto Rico
- Amaliya Margaryan – Waiting for the Sun
- Nemra – I’m a Liar
- Mariam Petrosyan – Fade
- Mger Armenia – Forever
- Robert Koloyan – Get Away With Us
- Asmik Shiroyan – You & I
The result given to “Puerto Rico,” a 9th place finish with the jury and a 2nd place finish with the televote, was one of the more anomalous moments in results. This anomaly was only mathematical; the loud, colorful presentation of the entry makes this discrepancy understandable and predictable.
