The Armenian broadcaster AMPTV is currently looking for the entry that the artist Aram Mp3 shall perform next May in Copenhagen.
Last New Year’s Eve it was announced that Aram Mp3 would represent Armenia in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest. The artist was designated in an internal selection.
Now AMPTV has busied itself to choose the song that the artist will take to the Eurovision Song Contest. The head of the delegation in charge of the Armenian project for Eurovision, Gohar Gasparyan, indicated that collaboration with Armenian and foreign composers is in progress in order to find their song.
Born in Yerevan, Aram Sargsyan (better known as Aram Mp3) attended the Yerevan State Medical University, from which he graduated in 2006. He was already involved in comedy shows while he was a student. After graduation he joined other artist to form the comedy show 32 Atam (Armenian for 32 teeth). He earned the nickname Mp3 from the comical covers of popular songs that he performed with 32 Atam. After they split in 2010 Aram started the comedy show Vitamin Club with his friends. He has been a host to several television shows in Armenia.
Now he has been tasked with representing his country in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. His entry is yet to be chosen.
Armenia participated in the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest for the first time with Andre performing Without your love. The 4th position achieved by Sirusho with Qele Qele in 2008 continues to be the best result to date for the country. Aram Mp3 could be the first Armenian representative to be the Eurovision Song Contest.
