    Good luck to Aram and all other singers from honest countries. Sadly, this is a competition where the result isn’t important, owing to the flawed/fraudulent voting. (In previous years, the neighboring country (nonsensically dubbed “Azerbaijan by Nuri Pasha and Lenin/Stalin) was noticed hiring EU students to vote for their performers.)
