'Do It My Way' was composed by tokionine, with the lyrics written by Junior Eurovision 2021 winner Maléna and Vahram Petrosyan. This is the same team behind the Junior Eurovision winning song 'Qami Qami'.
In terms of style, Yan Girls have been very clear that they are inspired by their favourite K-pop artists and hope to bring that sound to the Junior Eurovision stage.

Armenia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest
Armenia made their Junior Eurovision debut back in 2007 and have competed in every year since, only missing the 2020 contest which they withdrew from due to the war in the Nagorno-Karabakh region at the time.
Armenia has never finished outside the top ten and has placed in the top three on nine occasions, winning twice and finishing as the runner-up five times. In 2010 Vladimir Arzumanyan took first place with 'Mama' and in 2021 Maléna's 'Qami Qami' was the winning entry.
Junior Eurovision 2023 will be held in Nice, France on November 26, 2023 (November 27, 2023 in Australia).
