About Rosa Linn

Rosa Linn is Armenia’s representative at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, after being chosen internally by the Armenian public broadcaster AMPTV. The song she will perform is entitled “Snap”.

Rosa Linn (Rosa Kostandyan) is an Armenian singer, songwriter and producer, who was born in Vanadzor, the city where she currently lives and works.

From a very early age – at only 6 years old – she started her musical career, learning to play the piano, and in 2013 she participated in the Armenian national pre-selection to represent Armenia in Junior Eurovision.

From there, she began to develop her musical career through a collaboration with Nvak Collective, a record label based in the United States. This record label is co-founded by Armenian-American singer-songwriter, Tamar Kaprelian, (who also competed in the national selection Depi Evratesil in 2018) and record producer, Alex Salibian (Harry Styles, Young the Giant, etc).

In September 2021, she debuted with Kiira, a well known singer in Armenia, with the song “King”. The video for the song has more than 287,000 views on Youtube, and counting.

“Snap” is composed by Rosa Linn herself, and produced by a team including Larzz Principato, Jeremy Dusoulet, Allie Crystal, Tamar Kaprelian & Courtney Harrell and Ben Samama.

Armenia returns to Eurovision in 2022, after its absence in 2021 due to the conflict with neighbouring Azerbaijan, which generated a political crisis in the country that made it impossible for the public broadcaster to choose a candidate for the 2021 contest.

Lyrics

It’s 4 am
I can’t turn my head off
Wishin’ these memories would fade
They never do
Turns out people lie
They say, “Just snap your fingers”
As if it was really that easy for me to get over you
I just need time

Snapping one, two
Where are you?
You’re still in my heart
Snapping three, four
Don’t need you here anymore
Get out of my heart
‘Cause I might snap

I’m writing a song
Said, “This is the last one”
How many last songs are left?
I’m losing count
Since June twenty-second
My heart’s been on fire
I was spending my nights in the rain
Tryna put it out

So I’m snapping one, two
Where are you?
You’re still in my heart
Snapping three, four
Don’t need you here anymore
Get out of my heart
‘Cause I might snap

Oh-oh-oh-ooh
‘Cause I might snap
Oh-oh-oh-ooh

And if one more person says, “You should get over it”
Oh, I might stop talking to people before I snap, snap, snap
Oh, I might stop talking to people before I snap

Snapping one, two
Where are you? (Where are you?)
You’re still in my heart (Still in my heart)
Snapping three, four
Don’t need you here anymore (Need you here anymore)
Get out of my heart
‘Cause I might snap

Oh-oh-oh-ooh (Snap)
‘Cause I might snap
Oh-oh-oh-ooh (Snap)
Get out of my heart
Oh-oh-oh-ooh
‘Cause I might snap
Oh-oh-oh-ooh (Get out of my heart, get out of my)
‘Cause I might snap

Armenia in Eurovision

Armenia entered the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 2006. Their debut entry ‘Without Your Love’ was performed by Andre, placing 8th at the end of voting.

Armenia has yet to win the Eurovision Song Contest but has a strong record of qualifying for the Grand Final. In 2008, Armenia’s Sirusho won the Marcel Bezençon Fan Award for her song Qélé, Qélé.

The country also successfully hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2011 after Vladimir Arzumanyan won the previous year with his song Mama.

Armenian broadcaster AMPTV launched a new national selection, Depi Evratesil (Armenian: Դեպի Եվրատեսիլ; “Towards Eurovision”) for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, and the same format was used in 2018 and again in 2020.

Armenia withdrew from the Contest in 2021 due to domestic issues that made participation impossible. It is hoped that they will return soon and build upon their two fourth place finishes (Sirusho’s Qélé, Qélé 2008 and Aram MP3’s Not Alone, 2014) and impressive qualifying record.
