After many speculations about whether Athena Manoukyan would represent Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest or not, another decision has been made by Armenian broadcaster AMPTV: Armenia will not participate in the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest.
The news was published by Head of Press David Tserunyan, who posted this on Twitter: “Very sad to announce that despite our best efforts, Armenia will not participate at @Eurovision 2021. The events that followed after the confirmation of our participation have made it impossible to organize an entry in time for this month’s deadline. #ESC2021 #Armenia.” He doesn’t give any details about what events he meant, but due to the political situation in Armenia they didn’t participate in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest as well.
Hopefully we will see Armenia back in the Eurovision Song Contest next year.
