Armenia: Brunette reveals her 'Future Lover'15 March 2023 at 19:00 CET
The talented singer-songwriter Brunette has been performing since the age of 4 and writing her own music since she was a teenager. Her songs Night, Smoke Break and Light Blue Eyes became massive hits on YouTube, clocking up millions of views.
On her song for Liverpool, Brunette says:
"'Future Lover' is a poetic canvas, a letter with no addressee. I remember once scrolling through my phone and seeing this beautiful quote which was such a simple yet beautiful thought that immediately inspired me. The words turned into a melody and a whole range of emotions just exploded out of me. Throughout our lives we’re all looking for the one - the future lover, the embodiment of our dreams, ideals, fears…"
With Future Lover, Brunette will perform in the Second Semi-Final at the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest.
At the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Armenia was represented by Snap performed by Rosa Linn. After the Contest, the song ended up topping the charts across Europe and even making a dent on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, becoming just the second song from the Eurovision Song Contest in the 21st century to enter the chart there.
Armenia at the Eurovision Song Contest
Armenia entered the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 2006. Their debut entry Without Your Love was performed by Andre, placing 8th at the end of voting.
Armenia has yet to win the Eurovision Song Contest but has a strong record of qualifying for the Grand Final. In 2008, Armenia's Sirusho won the Marcel Bezençon Fan Award for her song Qélé, Qélé, which finished in 4th place in Belgrade.
That 4th-place finish is tied as Armenia's best to date at the Contest, along with Aram MP3 who managed the same result in 2014, with Not Alone.
Armenia successfully hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2011 after Vladimir Arzumanyan won the previous year with his song Mama. The country won again in 2021, thanks to Maléna and her song Qami Qami., which led to Yerevan playing host to the Contest in 2022.
