The video is great. Did elevate the song for me. But it's still a quite a rubbish song IMO. Upgrading it from "0" to "2".
1 point for the visuals and 1 point for the revamp effort.

Azerbaijan and Armenia giving us the expensive visuals this year.

Tumblr, mostly.
yeah it convinced me that the song isn't rly worth hating.

That drop remains a sore though.

Upgraded to a :5:

My favourite music video together with that of Azerbaijan & Russia. Good revamp as well.

OMG! Armenians didn't disappoint!

With the recent revamps sometimes not doing the original songs any favour, I feared they might ruin their own entry too. Not only did they keep the essence of the first version, but they upgraded it nicely without making it sound like an overdone re-work. I can hear so many layers now and it's more epic and expensive now while keeping a tasteful balance.

And the MV is really great as well! Hopefully the staging will be as fierce and visual (no Walking Out part 2 please!).

I had given 12 points to "Chains On You" already when Athena won, so it's a :12:++ now :giggle:

Armenia is in contention for my personal number 1 this year. Great job guys! x12points

I upgrade from :4: to :5:, small improvements but still one of the worst songs of the year imo... Video helps

It's catchy but I like songs with more melody... She is now a Borderline non-qualifier in my point of view, juries may KILL this unless she improves a LOT vocally... Athena is a good performer but vocally she has proven to be weak

Edit: After watching the live one more time: even with a good staging I find this floppable af... If she is as average as in the NF vocally, a very few people will really connect with the song.

It sounds great! Much better than the original version.

I think this definitely stands out from the crowd in Semi Final 2. I think it has a good chance to qualify.

This was my fave Armenian entry since unbeatable Goddess queen of all times Sirusho Harutyunyan mistress.

What a loss.

The Armenian national final is usually bad so no one will miss it. The best idea is to send her again!

On this day (24th of April) we remember the 1.5 million people massacred in the Armenian Genocide 105 years ago!

Never Forget!
