Who is Srbuk?

Armenian pop fans amongst you might have already heard of Srbuk. But for those less familiar, here’s what you need to know.

Srbuk – whose real name is Srbuhi Sargsyan – came to the public’s attention during Armenia’s version of the X Factor. Since finishing as a runner-up in 2011 she has been dubbed a rising star in her home country and competed on the 2018 version of The Voice of Ukraine, placing fourth.

Her 2016 single ‘Yete Karogh Es’ (‘If You Can’) topped the Armenian charts for two weeks, and last November she released a new track titled ‘Half a Goddess’.

What is Armenia’s song called? Is there a video?

Armenia have not yet announced their participating song for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.

But if you’re already itching for a taste of what Srbuk has to offer, you can check out her music on YouTube.

How did Armenia do at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest?
