Srbuk to represent Armenia at Eurovision 2019

Armenia is the first out of 42 participating countries to announce their Eurovision 2019 participant. Tonight, during late-night talk show Lav Yereko, Srbuk was announced as the country's hopeful for next year's competition in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Srbuk is being described as one of the rising stars of Armenia. She has participated in numerous competitions, both local and international, including reaching the final stage of The Voice Ukraine. Her hit single Yete karogh es topped the Armenian charts for weeks in 2016, and last week she dropped a new single titled Half a Goddess.

Srbuk: “I am starting a new journey now, which, I am sure, will be full of new and pleasant emotions, challenges and amazing experiences! I am grateful to all of my friends and fans, who are always with me and have always wanted to see me on the Eurovision stage. I am grateful to the Public Television of Armenia for their trust. It’s an honor to represent my country in front of the whole world! We have an amazing journey ahead of us, and I hope we’ll succeed together!”

A decision on Srbuk's participating song has not been made yet. The Armenian broadcaster has announced an open call for song submissions. If you are a composer interested in submitting a song, then this is your shot. Be sure to submit your song before 10 January, 2019.
