by Jessica Weaver 1,737 views

Three months in the running and we now have our final 2 acts in Armenia’s national selection for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, Depi Evratesil.

Four acts remained in semi-final 2 of Depi Evratesil, in which each act performed to the public and jury once again for the chance to compete in next week’s Grand Final.

Unlike last week where a national jury was used, this week saw the introduction of an international jury which, along with the televote, decided which 2 acts would qualify and compete in the Grand Final of the selection.

Arstvik and Marta have qualified for the Grand Final and will battle for  the golden ticket to Kyiv next week. One of them will fly the Armenian flag at the 2017 Eurovision  Song  Contest next May.

Grand final next week!

Next Saturday sees the Grand Final of Depi Evratesil, in which the final 2 acts will compete for the right to represent Armenia at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv next May.

The winner and Armenian representative will be determined via a combined 50/50 jury/public vote, however the song entry for the Eurovision event will be revealed in due course.

AMPTV has decided to opt for a national selection in order to select Armenia’s act for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, the last time being in 2013.

The nation has received successful results over the years since their Eurovision debut in 2006, placing in the top 10 of the Grand Final a total of 7 times to date.
