In Malmö Gor Sujyan will perform the song Lonely planet. This is the Armenian entry selected in tonight’s show. Gor is the lead singer of the internationally acclaimed Armenian band The Dorians. The winning entry in the Armenian show got selected through a 50/50 jury and tele-voting deliberation. Gor Sujyan is the seventh Armenian representative. The country is returning in the contest after it withdrew last year.
In the show four songs were performed by Sujyan who got internally selected by the Armenian broadcaster last month. Maltese Eurovision hopeful Gianluca and Georgian representatives Sophie and Nodi performed their respective Eurovision entries.
The country’s best placing at the Eurovision Song Contest was in 2008 with Sirusho’s Qele qele. Gor Sujyan will fly the Armenian flag in the second semi-final on 16 May.
