Yesterday, during the ﬁrst semi ﬁnal of Depi Evratesil, Armenia’s groundbreaking national selection format, 6 artists competed for only 4 spots in the second semi ﬁnal, that will be held next Saturday. After a tuff competition Marta, Artsvik, Egine and Suzanna Melqonyan proceeded to the next stage, leaving Vahe and Lucy behind.
The result was determined by a 50/50 vote cast by a team of 9 professional juries and televiewers. The voting system was similar to the one used at the Eurovision Song Contest. Each jury awarded 1 to 6 points - 1 for their least and 6 for their most favorite artist respectively. The jury awarded a total of 189 points. The total amount of tele-votes was converted to 189 points as well, and awarded to each participant in ascending order.
The second semi ﬁnal will air live next Saturday at 22:00 Armenian time. For more information on Depi Evratesil please visit www.eurovision.am or follow our ofﬁcial Facebook page.
