Inga and Anush released video clip with final version of Eurovision 2009 song for Armenia - Nor Par (Jan Jan)

Video is not bad. Final version of the song is slightly better than the initial one. Still, not good enough for Inga and Anush to display their potential.

In any case, I wish good luck to Inga and Anush.

did you see me in this video, I am dancing in that hall, especially the part that everybody's falling sown I am in the middle. Finally something could make me smile my crazy dance:)

OMG! I had no idea! :) It's good you said it, otherwise would never thought of. Now I can see your 'crazy' moves :)

Finally watched the video and heard the song. Confused, a mess, accented, and not coherent in style.

Interestingly, I'm sure after Sirusho's song was decided last year I heard it everywhere in Yerevan i.e. in underground metros, on the radio in buses, etc.

However, with this song, it's the first time I've heard the song anywhere -- and it's over a week since you posted this clip. Not a good sign, I think

That’s certainly a sign. And with such a promising potential – voice and talent, but with the wrong choice of song, instead of aiming at winning they may struggle to pass through to the final...

On a more positive note, I loved their costumes :)

Onnik Krikorian said...

Agreed, wrong choice of song for Inga and Anush, perhaps even wrong choice of act for Eurovision althouhgh their have been some quirky "traditional" acts in the past.

Anyway, yeah, they would have been better to enter with their own trademark style of song rather than this. Then they would have stood a chance given that they are musically very proficient.

Anyway, I think Eurovision isn't going to be of much interest to me this year. Not an exciting entry from Armenia, a rather normal entry from Azerbaijan to the point of being able to forget it easily (and it is still uncertain whether Aysel can sing live) and...

the only saving grace from the South Caucasus, We don't wanna Put-in from Georgia, has been disqualified. On the other hand, with the furore surrounding that song, it's all downhill afterwards anyway.

That was enough for me to make this year's Eurovision memorable. :-)

Is there an award for "best costume design"? (Okay, I know there isn't, but they could definitely win that!)

BTW, now that this tune has been playing incessantly in my head for the last couple of hours, I can tell you that what it sounds like is an Irish jig, so maybe they can get the Irish Riverdance fans to vote for it...

I am intrigued and hopeful that Fresh Art studio in Moscow comprised of Armenians and an Azerbaijani (!) will help to stage a great show. Have a look at my comment here:

(I have to admit that over the last couple of days, their song grew on me a bit. My hope is their constumes and stage show could make a real difference.)

Actually, I've changed my mind. It's not bad. It's just the first short zoorna bursts I don't like.

Who knows? Maybe a top 10. Depends on the other entries, I suppose.
