Brunette will represent Armenia at Eurovision 2023
The Armenian broadcaster AMPTV have revealed that Brunette will be competing at Eurovision 2023 for Armenia.
The Armenian pop star has a few music releases to her name with her 2022 single 'Smoke Break' being her highest streaming song on Spotify with over 200,000 streams.
Her more recent release 'Bac kapuyt achqerd' (Light Blue Eyes) has over five million views on YouTube.
The singer-songwriter has been performing since 4-years-old and has been writing music since she was a teen. In a statement with eurovision.tv Brunette said:
‘I am happy to share the news with you. I just create music, and this time I will share it with the European audience!’
Executive Director for AMPTV, Hovhannes Movsisyan, has revealed that they have again taken the approach to showcasing young, talented Armenian artists:
‘Last year, sending a young artist to Eurovision was justified. The song is still successful and captivates millions of fans. I hope this year we will surprise the European audience with a unique Armenian artist.’
Davit Tserunyan, the Head of the Armenian delegation to the Eurovision Song Contest, said:
‘A few weeks after organising the Junior Eurovision in Yerevan, we started the process of selecting our representative for the contest. At this stage, we are working on the song and the video, which I am sure will be impressive!’
Brunette's Eurovision song will be released in March.
Armenia have participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 14 times since 2006, only missing the Contest twice. Armenia has qualified for the Eurovision Final 11 times, with their best result being fourth place which they achieved twice with Sirusho in 2008 and Aram Mp3 in 2014. Last year Rosa Linn flew through to the Final and finished in 20th place with 'Snap'. Rosa's entry would go on to become viral on TikTok and storm music charts around the world.
