Hello welcome to my series of quick takes designed to get you ready for Eurovision 2019. Just some quick thoughts / my take on each of the 41 songs this year. The countries are in alphabetical order so without further ado: Armenia.
Song: Walking Out
Personal Score: 15 out of 41
My Prediction: Q
This is a pretty unique sound for Eurovision and I have high hopes that there will be a pretty bombastic stage show to go along with the song (hopefully somewhat like the music video in feeling) and that should make this a pretty easy qualifying song. How well it does beyond that is probably up to what it ends up next to but I don’t see this going higher than 15th because it’s a little too dark and angry for most of the Eurovision audience – somewhat close to Skeletons from 2017. Srbuk has a really powerful voice but I worry that the song might end up a little bit on the droning side because it doesn’t have enough hooks and stand out moments but with the right energy and visuals this could really be a pleasant under the radar surprise.
