"Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018

Armenia has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 11 times since making its debut in "2006, and has reached the top 10 on seven occasions. Armenia's best result in the contest is two fourth-place finishes; achieved by "Sirusho in "2008 with the song ""Qélé, Qélé", and "Aram Mp3 in "2014 with ""Not Alone". "2011 is the only year that Armenia has failed to advance from the semi-final round. This was followed by the country withdrawing from the "2012 contest due to security concerns.



"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.[1]

Despite their 2012 withdrawal, Armenia confirmed participation in the 2013 contest in Sweden.[2]

In 2014 Armenia reached the top 5 after 4 years, represented by Aram Mp3 with the song "Not Alone" placed 4th. This is the best place that Armenia ever got alongside with Sirusho with the song "Qélé, Qélé" in 2008, which had also received the most 12 points in the 2008 contest.

In addition from 2004-2007, the top ten countries who were not members of the big four did not have to compete in the semi-finals the following year. If, for example, Germany and France placed inside the top ten, the countries who placed 11th and 12th were advanced to the following year's grand final along with the rest of the top ten countries.
