CRITICIZING EMMY FOR EUROVISION IS BETRAYAL – ARMENIAN SINGER
May 12 2011
YEREVAN. – Armenian singer Emmy’s failure at Eurovision 2011 was due
to poor performance of another singer who performed as back vocal,
said Armenian singer Shushan Petrosyan.
Petrosyan considers that criticism over Emmy is nothing but betrayal,
as she performed well.
“I cannot understand how one can criticize clothes, hair and such
things. That attitude is a betrayal. What do you want, the girl is
just 22,” she emphasized (Emmy was born in 1984, she is 27 – ed.).
Shushan Petrosyan stressed she advised Emmy not to participate in
the contest. She also commented on performance of Eurovision 2010
Armenian delegate, singer Eva Rivas. Petrosyan compared Rivas with
bubble gum from overseas.
As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, Armenia’s representative at
Eurovision Song Contest 2011 Emmy did not qualify for the Grand Final.
