If the situation in the South Caucasus is developing exactly as it is introduced to the public by Russian and Armenian mass media, quoting well-known political scientists and experts on Russia and Armenia, then it is high time for Baku to think about her situation and conduct.

Stars of Armenian show business expected Sona Shahgeldyan’s to cause furore

August 5, 2010 - 15:34 AMT   GMT
An Armenian singer won New Wave song contest for the first time in nine years of its existence. Armenia was represented by Sona Shahgeldyan this year, as she passed through a selection round in April 2010. People had been talking about wonderful vocal of Sona and her unusual timbre for a long time. However, almost all representatives of Armenia were notable for their powerful vocal at the contest. Jury was traditionally delighted with Armenian artists, but each time they lacked several or even one point to win the contest. This refers also to Razmik Amyan, who participated in the contest in 2006, when everyone was speaking with admiration about the singer’s unique voice, but a representative of the U.S. won the contest. Almost the same thing happened to Mher, who participated in New Wave in 2008. He received the People’s Choice Award, but has not won the contest.
