Interview: Armenia

Although we have all seen certain less than flattering comments about the concept of how the Armenian representatives have been selected and the song's topic of choice but if this was not a Eurovision entry it wouldn't have received such queen comments. Trying to look at it from a distance and keeping a level of unbiased opinion it is not half bad. Armenia is always one of those countries you need to keep an eye out for and even though this year sees their odds are less favorable than normal, we know things have surprised in the past. Could this be one of those?

We managed to get a short chat with the group composed of Essai Altounian (FRA), Tamar Kaprelian (USA), VaheTilbian (ETH) , Stephanie Topalian (JPN), Mary-Jean O'Doherty Vasmatzian (AUS) and Inga Arshakyan (ARM).

One thing I do have to mention here, with all the manic journalists and fans you need to deal with as Press officer for any delagation, I would like to offer my most sincere thanks to Ruzanna Pilosyan of the American University of Armenia. She is in charge of handling all the request, all the post shots and trying to keep the calm between the masses wanting interviews and promo materials. Always giving her most, she showed that even when under difficult circumstances you can still smile and give a great impression of yourself and a great representation of your country. Sadly, this cannot be said for all this year.

I would like to apologise in advance for any shaky camerawork. It was a bit of a quick rush and having the group spread out was a bit difficult to pan out and get the best shots when working solo. I hope you enjoy!
