Internal selection for Armenia
The Armenian representative for the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku will be determined internally, as Gohar Gasparyan, representative of the public broadcaster ARMTV and head of the Armenian delegation, confirmed recently. The result of the internal selection will be announced close to the official deadline, no later than March 18th. The decision who will represent the Caucasian country in neighbouring Azerbaijan will be taken by a expert jury, consisting of musicians, producers and TV professionals of The Public Television and Radio Council of the Republic of Armenia.
Armenia has been represented in the Eurovision Song Contest every year since 2006, with the best result being reached by Sirusho in 2008: With Qélé Qélé, she came 2nd in the Semi-Final and 4th in the Final in Belgrade. Last year, Emmy represented Armenia with Boom Boom, failing to qualify for the Final.
