Winner Artsvik

The Armenian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 was determined through the “Depi Evratesil” talent show. Auditions were held in September 2016 open to Armenian artists or artists of Armenian descent. 80 acts were selected to progress to the televised competition, broadcast in October 2016. Each act had two minutes to perform and convince the judges; contestants progressed to the next stage if 3 or more judges liked the contestant and pressed their button. 37 acts progressed to the next stage, where each judge had to pick 4 acts to join their team. In the last 10 seconds of each participant’s performance the judges could press their button if they wanted them to join their team – the first judge to press the button won the contestant.

In the third stage each judge’s acts competed against one another, with one act eliminated from the competition. After the performances five judges could give one vote to their favourite act, while the acts’ own judge could give three points. The final two artists on each team then competed against each other, with their own judge having the final say on who progressed. The remaining acts, one from each judge, then competed against each other, with two eliminated in each semi-final until two acts remained in the final. All songs performed were cover versions.
