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.
