Another night and another Eurovision act to be decided this evening as Armenia determines the winner of their national selection for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, Depi Evratesil.
Over the past 3 months, we’ve seen 80 Armenian artists from across the globe auditioning and singing for the right to represent their country at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
From 80 to 24, artists were selected to compete on a jury member’s team throughout the rest of the competition, but only 1 act from each team could qualify to the live shows of Depi Evratesil following the battle stages of the contest.
With the semi-finals now complete, only 2 artists remain in the Grand Final of the Armenian national selection; Marta and Artsvik. But who will fly to Kyiv in May to represent Armenia at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest?
How to watch
The Grand Final of Depi Evratesil kicks off from 18:30 CET (21:30 local time) via the following channels:

This evening’s Grand Final will see the remaining 2 artists performing once again for the right to represent Armenia at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
As with the previous live shows, both Marta and Artsvik will perform cover versions of known singles in a bid to earn points from both the jury as well as the public SMS vote.
The votes will be combined 50/50, with the artist receiving the highest number of points flying the Kyiv in May to compete on the Eurovision stage. Although the Armenian artist will be determined this evening, the song entry will be decided at a later date.
Special guest performance
A special guest will perform as tonight’s interval act in Depi Evratesil, that person being Cyprus’ Eurovision 2017 representative, Hovig, who was internally selected to represent the nation earlier this year. Hovig, full name Hovig Demirjian, is a Cypriot singer of Armenian descent.
With Artsvik winning the jury vote and Marta winning the televote in last weekend’s second semi-final, it’ll be a close call this evening when deciding the Armenian Eurovision 2017 representative! Who would you like to see in Kyiv?
