The all star judging panel made up of previous Armenian Eurovision participants Iveta Mukuchyan, AramMP3, Hayko Inga and Anush and Genealogy’s Essai decided the fate of 25 hopefuls on Saturday night, with 12 of the acts chosen to progress to compete in round 2.

The show kicked off in style with a woman getting all six judges’ approval with her rendition of Emeli Sande’s ‘Heaven’, securing her spot in the next round. Also impressing the judges was a woman who sang Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ with a denim jacket draped over her shoulders who also got six pink lights from the judges. This was followed by a number of sub-par performances which either received one or no votes from the judges.

The women were on top form this week again with highlights including renditions of Adele’s ‘Feel My Love’,  Beyonce’s ‘Work It Out’ and Meghan Trainor’s ‘No’. The male talent failed to live up to the women’s high standard with only one man gaining six yes votes from the judges for his version of Sigala’s ‘Give Me Your Love’. No groups performed this week.

The twelve acts from this week’s auditions will join the twelve from Show One: Saro Gevorgyan, Artsvik, Egine, Alexander Plato, Mary Mheryan, Vahe Alexanyan, Mariam Yevriyan, Syuzanna Melqonyan, Amalya Margaryan, Qristina Avetisyan, Anna Sedrakyan & Only Girls.
