Aram MP3, who will represent Armenia at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in May, performed a special version of Emmelie de Forest’s Only teardrops in his native Yerevan over the weekend.

Both a singer and a comedian, Aram MP3 is well known throughout Armenia for his lively stage shows.  Only teardrops was adapted into an authentic Armenian style for his performance, and was well received by his audience, which included Armenia’s 2009 representatives, twins Inga and Anush.

He’s got everything one could ever need for the stage: charisma, artistry, good taste, talent and passion for what he is doing, the pair said. We have no doubt in his success.
