Depi Evratesil (Armenian: Դեպի Եվրատեսիլ; "Towards Eurovision"; Armenian pronunciation: [dɛˈpi jɛvɾɑtɛˈsil]) is an Armenian music entertainment show created by the Armenian broadcaster AMPTV. It was used as the Armenian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017 and 2018.

Its first season concluded on 24 December 2016 with the selection of Artsvik as Armenia's Eurovision representative. The second season took place in 2018, and selected Sevak Khanagyan with the song Qami. However, in 2019, the show was not renewed for a third season, and the Armenian entry for the contest was selected internally. As of September 2019, it is unknown if Depi Evratesil will return as the selection for 2020.

Summary[edit]

Season 1 (2016-17)[edit]

Season 1 of Depi Evratesil was announced on 1 July 2016.[1] It was later confirmed that former Armenian Eurovision entrants Essaï Altounian, Inga and Anush Arshakyan, Hayko, Aram Mp3, and Iveta Mukuchyan would serve as judges on the show, each creating their own team of contestants and mentoring them through the show in a similar way to The Voice.[2] Contestants took part in auditions from 22 October to 12 November 2016, where those successful were selected by the judges to be part of one of their teams.[3] Afterwards, the contestants battled each other from 19 November to 3 December to make the semifinals.[4][5] The semifinals were held on 10 and 17 December. Artsvik was declared the winner of Depi Evratesil on the final held on 24 December.[6][7] A mix of jury voting and televotes determined the results in the semifinals and final, while the judges decided who would advance in the earlier rounds.[8][1]
