Emmy goes boom boom for Armenia

Posted

The victory of Boom Boom came as a suprise to many as experts and fans had expected another song - Ayo - to win the national Armenian final. Emmy made it soon clear though that she is happy with the chosen song and that she would do her utmost to guarantee a good placing for Armenia in this year's contest.

Emmy had already tried to represent Armenia in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, but ultimately, she ended up on the 4th place in the national heat with You've Done It. She gave it another try last year together with rapper Mihran, but she narrowly missed out on a ticket to Oslo, coming second after Eva Rivas.
