Gor Sujyan is the lucky singer who was appointed to represent Armenia in the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest by an expert committee nominated by the Public TV Company of Armenia. He is no stranger to Europe's Favourite TV Show: In 2010 he already supported Eva Rivas on the Eurovision stage as a backing vocalist.
Tonight, Gor will perform four songs. Out of these, a combined vote of the TV public and a professional jury will decide the winning entry. The titles of the songs in the competition are as follows:
The composers of the four songs will not be disclosed until after the national final. However, it is known that foreign as well as local songwriters have entries in the running.
On stage, Gor Sujyan will be supported by his band Dorians. Together they have already participated in the Armenian national final for the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, coming third.
The show will be hosted by Gohar Gasparyan and Avet Barseghyan. The same duo has hosted the 2011 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in Yerevan.
In the interval act, the 2013 Eurovision representatives of Malta, Gianluca Bezzina, and Georgia, Nodi Tatishvili and Sophie Gelovani, will perform their entries. Moreover, the Armenian representatives in the 2012 Junior Eurovision Song Contest are promising a surprise performance in the show.
