Cohesiveness of Package
Armenia have arranged a bold package that should see them secure another respectable placing in Kyiv.
Armenia have just completed the lineup for Eurovision 2017 and Artsvik’s will perform the song Fly With Me in the second half of semi-final 1.
Fly With Me isn’t your run-of-mill piece of Eurovision euro-pop, it’s a stylish drizzle of entho theatrics. The song isn’t much on its own, but it’s a mightily memorable package with that colourful video. To me it feels like a cinematic production from a bygone age set in a far off exotic land, yet it also feels quite avant garde and fresh.
Artsvik sounds vocally assured and sells the song well. And given the alternative nature of the presentation, Artsvik still looks voteable. It’ll be interesting to see if this staging concept remains for Kyiv given they’ll have to lose a dancer and add some vocalists. If they are 100% sold on this concept, I suspect they’ll use the holo gauze effect to create a line of holographic dancers behind Artsvik.
Either way, standing out at Eurovision is the key objective, and it looks like Armenia have a bold package that should see them secure another respectable placing in Kyiv.
Top-10, top-5, or neither?
