After many speculations about whether Athena Manoukyan would represent Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest or not, another decision has been made by Armenian broadcaster AMPTV: Armenia will not participate in the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest. The news was published by Head of Press David Tserunyan, who posted this on Twitter: “Very sad to announce that despite our best efforts, Armenia will not participate at @Eurovision 2021. The events that followed after the confirmation of our participation have made it impossible to organize an entry in time for this month’s deadline. #ESC2021 #Armenia.” He doesn’t give any details about what events he meant, but due to the political situation in Armenia they didn’t participate in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest as well.
