We’ve been patiently waiting to see what Armenia had in store for us this year, and the big week finally arrived. Earlier in the week we had two semi-finals, where there were 10 competing acts in each semi-final with five qualifiers from each.
Here are the competing acts:
Sevak Khanagyan – Qami
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 and I
The voting was a mixture of jury and televotes, with each party giving a maximum of 12 points. We’ll start with the jury vote, which was topped by Sevak Khanagyan and the song Qami. In second place was Nemra with the song I’m A Liar, and in third was Amaliya Margaryan.
With the televote, the winner of the public vote was also Sevak Khanagyan. In second place was Kamil Show with the song Puerto Rico, and in third was Nemra. With the points combined, it was clear that it would be Sevak Khanagyan to represent Armenia with his song Qami. In second place was Nemra, and in third was Amaliya Margaryan.
Sevak Khanagyan first came to prominence when competing in the fourth season of The Voice of Russia, and then went on to win season seven of the X Factor Ukraine. He has been a coach on The Voice of Armenia since the third season in 2017.
