Eurovision Song ContestEdit

From October to December 2016, Artsvik competed in Depi Evratesil, Armenia's national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.[3][4] During her time on the show, she was a member of Essaï Altounian's team.[5] On 24 December, she was declared the winner of the competition and thus became Armenia's entrant to the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.[6] It was confirmed by Public Television company of Armenia (AMPTV) that her song would be selected internally. On 9 March 2017, the song was confirmed to be called "Fly with Me", and a snippet was released on 16 March.[2][1][7] Two days later, its music video was released.[8] Armenia competed in the second half of the first semi-final at the Eurovision Song Contest and then in the final coming 18th.[9][10] This is Armenia's fourth worst result in the contest to date, tied with 2013 and only worsened by the 2011, 2018 and 2019 contestants, who didn't qualify for the final.
