Music video[edit]

The music video for "Walking Out", directed by Arthur Manukyan, was teased on 8 March 2019. It was released on Eurovision's official YouTube channel on March 10.[3] While talking about the music video, Srbuk said:

We wanted to visually portray the emotions within a loving but betrayed heart. When you think you will be filled with joy, but instead there is not enough air to breathe. When you want to share your happiness, but instead you start losing yourself: your hands are tied, your emotions are overwhelming, you keep pretending just to keep your love alive. But what are you waiting for? How long can you play by these rules? These are the questions and emotions visualized in the music video.

Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

The song was performed on 16 May 2019 in the second semi-final of Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel, but did not gain enough points to advance to the final.[2] It was later revealed to have received 49 Points placing 16th becoming the worst result for Armenia at Eurovision.
