Less than two months are left until the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark, and bookmakers have already name Armenia as a possible winner of this year's event.
While Norway and Sweden rank high according to bookmakers, it is Armenian singer-songwriter Aram Mp3 to secure the best odds at this point.
Aram, whose real last name is Sargsyan, will perform the song "Not Alone". AMPTV announced on December 31st that Aram will represent the nation in Denmark, but didn't release the song until March 14th.
The song has been met with enthusiasm by Youtube users. "This song is my favourite from this year's contest, and I really want Armenia to win. It's one of the only good songs in this year's contest and I'm probably going to remember this entry more than any other entry from 2014," says a fan from the United Kingdom.
Another user is even more optimistic about the outcome for Armenia: "What city will Armenia pick to host Eurovision 2015?"
Armenia has taken part in seven song contests so far, reaching the final on six occasions. Having made their first appearance in 2006, they achieved their best placement two years later by finishing in fourth place in Serbia.
Last year's song, "Lonely Planet" by Dorians, finished in 18th place with a total of 41 points.
