Have you seen the song which represents Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023? Is it going to be successful? Stay with me to the very end of this article and watch the video to find out if this entry’s going to win.
This time I’m going to present to you my honest comment on the song that will represent Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. This is “Future Lover” by Brunette whose real name is Elen Yeremyan.
Let’s focus on the first snippet.
Well, frist things first. A delicate introduction. Nice vibrato. I really like it but this feels like a ballad. And this goes on like that. Nice.
This Armenian entry was chosen internally and romour has it that the majority of viewers are of the opinion that those responsible for that choice have just hit the nail on the head.
And this year’s song was created by Brunette herself. Congratulations!
And this song goes on like that – delicate, slow tempo with the orchestra, strings. However, Brunette’s looks would suggest that something’s going to change.
Oh, yes! And this is the moment. The song’s presented in a more chatty style, staccato. Rap like style. This could be treated here as a bridge.
And we get back to the chorus but this time is much stronger vocally and the language is switched into Armenian which adds spice to this song.
We might say that we have three parts of the song: slow and delicate, faster and stronger, average tempo and medium strength.
As for the lyrics, well, is the artist just looking for someone who’ll love her?
All in all, I’d say this is a very good performance with very good vocals which you can also hear live during pre-parties.
As each juror is going to rank all the competing songs based on the given criteria, I will also assign points in the same categories (eurovision.tv):
– composition and originality of the song, 9 out of 10;
– quality of the performance on stage (hard to say because the national selection wasn’t held this year, but you can see some live pre-party performance available. Staging, however, I assume will be more sophisticated in Liverpool), 7 out of 10;
– vocal capacity of the performer(s), 10 out of 10;
– overall impression of the act, 9 out of 10.
So the total is: 35 out of 40 that is 88%.
Will Brunette’s song lead her to future victory? We’ll see if she will get the best result for Armenia. To do that she would have to finish third (as the best result for Armenia so far has been the 4th place in the Grand Final; it was in 2008 and 2014).
In the end, I can only say: Well done, Brunette! Congratulations, Armenia! I assume this song might qualify for the Grand Final but I’m not 100% sure if this will happen.
What do the bookmakers say about the Armenian entry? At this moment (29th April 2023) it’s in 12th place on eurovisionworld.com and in all probability, it will be successful in Liverpool.
Let’s hear it for Brunette and the whole team!
