Armenia 2016 - Iveta Mukuchyan - LoveWave

It's been built up like an interesting mystery for weeks. We'd been left under the impression that we were going to get a big, Armenian pop belter, and when this afternoon's big reveal came we were all sat poised at the edge of our seats. Well, there's been no out-and-out winner yet, so the portents for a nice caucasian holiday next May were good.

They became even stronger when the tune started. A classy, character-led intro suddenly built into a massive long anxiety-inducing lead up... I was all ready for a huge banger... And then the chorus kicked in. Oh well, nothing to see here. Rather than a big bouncy beaty blaster, it quickly descended into a right old plodder. Indeed, it wasn't long before the currently popular refraain "you-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo" popped up, and we all lost immediate interest, quickly checking the schedules to see if there's any more possible contenders to come out of the hat.

In fact, the only thing that kept us amused past the halfway point was when the supposedly meaningful fades between the moody woman and the beardy lad left said moody woman looking like she had a right hairy chest. Well, you've got to make your own fun at times like these.
