Rosa Linn to compete in for Armenia with song out March 19



Overnight, Armenia announced that Rosa Linn would be competing for the nation in Turin.


The release date for their song is March 19, which means we have one more week until the full Eurovision 2022 line up is revealed.


The 21-year-old singer songwriter is from Vanazdor in Armenia and began playing music from age six.


She is described as bringing a modern twist to late 80s and early 90s indie pop backed by punchy drums and polished synths.


Rosa Linn told Eurovision.tv the struggle she went through to represent her nation.


"From the outside looking in, the odds seemed like they were against me — an unknown girl from a small town in Armenia. But the power of manifestation is real when it is combined with hard work; persistence; and just putting oneself out there. I’m excited to let people into my inner-world through my music. And I’m beyond honoured to be able to represent my beloved country on the biggest stage in Europe," she said.

Armenia are returning to Eurovision after a year off in 2021. They have no made the Grand Final since 2017 but have made the Top 10 on seven of the thirteen occasions they have competed.
