Aram MP3’s YouTube video smashes view counts
YEREVAN, ARMENIA – Aram Mp3 represented Armenia in Eurovision Song Contest 2014 with the song “Not Alone”. Currently the music video of the song “Not Alone” has more than 6,061,796 views in Youtube, which is an absolute record among the Armenian artists.
None of Armenian artists reached the limit of 4 million views in Youtube yet. Sirusho, who represented Armenia back in 2008, gained only 4 million views, while Aram Mp3’s song is just starting to conquer its audience. With the upcoming contract with Universal Music, Aram Mp3 tends to become the most successful Armenian artist.
For Armenians, the Eurovision Song Contest is an important stage and gate for Armenian young artists to reach the international audience and to become popular worldwide. Armenian Television makes great effort in participating in the all editions of the Eurovision Song Contest, including Junior Eurovision, which will be held this year, on November 15th in Malta.
DID YOU KNOW?
Armenia debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006 with the song “Without Your Love” performed by André. Armenia had never entered the competition before, therefore it had to compete in the semi final. André was the first performer of the semi-finals. The song reached the final of the contest on 20 May 2006 and gave Armenia a successful debut coming in 8th position. Having reached the top ten in the final, Armenia didn’t have to compete in the semi-final of the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest and automatically reached the final on 12 May performing 23rd of the 24 finalists and came 8th again. Armenia was one of only three countries that had always placed in the top ten since the introduction of the semi-finals. This record was broken at the 2011 contest, when Emmy and the song Boom Boom failed to qualify from the first semi-final by only one point. On 7 March 2012, Armenia announced that it would be withdrawing from the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, because of security concerns. Despite their 2012 withdrawal, Armenia returned normally in 2013 and 2014 Eurovision editions.
