Armenia – And it continues… Despite the fact that the EBU published the official list of participants for the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, the Head of the Armenian delegation Gohar Gasparyan told epress.am that Armenia appearing on the list does not mean the country will necessarily send an entry to arch rival Azerbaijan. “We applied to Eurovision because we are a member of the European Broadcasting Union. But we’re still discussing how safe the participation of our delegation will be in Baku, as well as other matters. We’ll announce whether we’ll participate in the contest or not at a later date,” she said.
In case of an Armenian withdrawal, the broadcaster would have to pay a significant fine.
