Yerevan, Armenia -

Public Television of Armenia is currently in the middle of the process of internally selecting their candidate for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. One of the most persistent rumours is that Sirusho might represent the small Caucasian country. However, the Head of the Armenian delegation, Gohar Gasparyan, emphasizes that nothing has been decided yet.

Sirusho, who represented Armenia in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest with Qélé Qélé and secured the best placing to date for her home country - fourth - might be set to return on the Eurovision stage this year.

She just recently released her new single Pre-Gomesh (watch on Youtube), which became the most watched Armenian clip within short time, yielding no less than 125.000 clicks during the first day, and 560.000 views during the first three weeks of publication.

It might indeed be a continuation of the Qélé Qélé story, the song title of which was taken from the works of Komitas, a famous Armenian artist: Pre-Gomesh, too, is influenced by Komitas' works. The buffalo (Gomesh) has an allegorical meaning, representing hard work, strong will, and justice.

Public Television of Armenia doesn't deny the fact of Sirusho's candidacy. "Anyone can be our representative for Malmö, including Sirusho, we are still discussing", said Gohar Gasparyan, head of the Armenian delegation.

Sirusho had already confirmed her interest to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest last year, but in the end, Armenia did not participate in the 2012 edition of the contest. Will she get her chance this year? We shall find out soon!

Stay with Eurovision.tv to find out who will represent Armenia in Malmö!

    I was never really a fan of this song. The best memory of it was when I was travelling in Norway (from Australia) and the train between Bergen and Oslo, a girl sat next to me and heard it from her music player. Mind you, anything could have been playing and I still would have remembered the girl. report to the moderator
