ARMENIA – There are moments where you see that a promo visit is made for practically nothing. OK we got the idea, Hovig will easily fight for the Armenian 12 points next May in Kyiv as he is of Armenian descent. He is currently in Yerevan the capital of Armenia. Speaking to NEWS.am of course he said the best for the two finalists in the national selection Depi Evratesil and he also “knows” that whoever wins the final will do well in Eurovision.
While the boring practice of going to your native country and praise everyone, smiling and sucking up for 12 points which anyway you will get from the Armenians (at least from the jury) is not news. It’s even weird why Hovig visits Yerevan without his Eurovision entry ready! Therefore the point of promo has been practically for nothing.
Hovig said to the press: “It is my first time at home, I’m very happy to be here. I won’t stay for long time, but I’m sure that all the time that I stay here, I will spend with pleasure and benefit, and one day I will surely come back”, says the singer, adding that so far he managed only to see the ice, because there is no ice in Cyprus, and it is a very beautiful sight. “My homeland is a miracle for me. Here live the warm and kind people, I’m very well accepted wherever I go. I would say that Armenia turned better than I imagined”.
Hovig, born in Cyprus by Cypriot mother and Armenian in Syria father. He speaks Armenian as he attended Armenian school in Cyprus and praised the Armenian culture. Well the Cypriot team must be proud they will secure high points from Armenia.
Trying already for years to go to Eurovision he feels proud that his work has been appreciated this year and selected internally. He praised of course Thoms G:son for composing his song feeling security as Mr G:son was the composer of Euphoria. I wouldn’t say nothing else after I paid 10,000 Euros as well! Regarding his Eurovision entry he only revealed that it will be storied about him!
Am I the only bored reading the story about this promo trip?
