Comments from the Aussievision team

"DANCE! is a slick well-produced banger that is bound to make you want to do exactly that. The clever use of dual language (Armenian verses & English chorus) ensure everyone can sing along which is a major part of this catchy song's appeal. Unlike many JESC entries over the years, there's no underlying theme of world peace or saving the environment here, but that's ok. There's a reason they call it the universal language - Nare just wants everyone to get up and dance!" ~ Emma


"This song is super fun and something both kids and adults can dance to! I love that it leans into Kpop-sounding elements with Nare bringing plenty of energy to the track. If Armenia end up winning back-to-back contests, I certainly won't be complaining!" ~ Laura


"This gets my nod as the best well produced "banger" of Junior this year. The "dance dance dance" is a great hook, it's sounds and looks expensive and Nare comes across as a natural performer. Armenia could go back to back." ~ Dale


"A modern, catchy, bilingual bop performed by an artist who gives me genuine popstar vibes. A very strong host country entry that could see Armenia do the double." ~ Steven


"Armenia have yet again delivered a bop! I was hooked from the first listen! I will not be surprised if they win the Contest back-to-back." ~ Kyriakos


"The beat is so fun and catchy!" ~ Stef


Armenia at Junior Eurovision


Armenia made their Junior Eurovision debut in 2007 and have competed in every year since, only missing the 2020 contest which they withdrew from due to the Nagorno-Karabakh war in the region at the time.


Armenia has never finished outside the top ten and has placed in the top three on eight occasions, winning twice. In 2010 Vladimir Arzumanyan took first place with 'Mama' and in 2021 Maléna's 'Qami Qami' was the winning entry.


Junior Eurovision 2022 will be held in Yerevan on December 11, 2022 (December 12, 2022 in Australia).
