Every year there are also a lot of artists being announced of their national broadcaster without knowing the song.
Also this year there are already some artists which we know, but we still don't know what they are going to sing. In this weekly report we will give you an overview about this artists for Kiev.
Artsvik won the national final, which was about finding the right artist. The talented singer was selected by a jury formed my some former eurovision artists from Armenia like Aram MP3, Iveta, Essai (memeber of group Genealogy) etc.
Also Armenia picked a talented former The Voice singer. Artsvik participated at the russian version of that casting show.
It's the second armenian talented singer, but he is going to participate for the sunny island Cyprus. In 2010 and 2015 Hovig already tried to get the ticket to eurovision but missed it.
Now in an internal selection the national broadcaster selected him. Hovig was the first announced artist in the 2017 season.
He will perform a song of the former eurovision winner composer Thomas Gyson. So we can be excited what the result of Cyprus will be.
The land of fire is also a successful land of songs at the eurovision. And also this year the country is sending a experienced team to the contest.
Diana Hajiyeva won't be for the first time at eurovision. She was already last year at the contest, as background singer of "Miracle". In 2011 she participated at the national final and lost against the later winners.
This year she will work together with Elnur, who already participated two times for Azerbaijan at the contest, in 2008 and 2015 making good results. Maybe this wil lbe a good chance for her.
DEMY is the greek artist this year. Greece had a bad moment last year, making it NOT to the final for the first time, since there is the semi final methodology. Maybe the national broadcaster took some lessons learned this year to make a better selection.
Demy is a talented singer who is NOT comiing from one of the international successful formats like X Factor, Idols or The Voice. But she already successful in her home country and had a first number one album.
This in combination with the experienced and very successful song singer Dimitris Kontopoulos could be the result of the lessons learned of last year.
We will see what the song will be and if Greece will do better this year.
Brendan Murray is maybe the singer with the biggest fan base so far. As member of the boy band HomeTown he is used to sing in front of huge audiences and had already a number one hit.
He is the the younger and hipper version of the participant of last year, who was an older former boy band singer.
Also for Brendan the song is still not known, but so far we know, the fans will support him.
6. F.Y.R. Macedonia
Jana Burceska is an other former casting show participants. But no from The Voice or X Factor like the most of the others. She is ex participant of the only macedonian edition of idol, where she made the 5. place.
We still don't know which genre the song will be. But we already know that the singer will be talented and will try to get a ticket to the final again.
In the next days Switzerland and Germany will select their entrees and Eurovision on Top will give you the updates and news you need to know.

Welcome once again to our new weekly report about the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.
This week we can announce artists which will participate in Stockholm. At the other hand there was the final and negative confirmation about a country which definitly won't return in 2016 to the contest.
• The Voice - this time also the source for Armenia
• Turkey do not return in 2016!
• 5 guys to bring a lot of plus points to Cyprus
Once again it is the international very known and famous casting show "The Voice" bringing a talent to the Eurovision Song Contest. This year Armenia didn't have to search in all corners of the world and to unit singers from all continents. This time it seemed to be a easier choice of a voice.
Iveta Mukuchyan, the 29 years old singer was born in Armenia and lived in Germany for 20 years and now lives again in Armenia.
2012 she participated at the german version of "The Voice", where she already showed her Eurovision connection performing "Euphoria" at the blind audition. After being choosed she made it through the battles to the live shows.
Click here to see the whole video:
In the past the choice of "The Voice" participants have seemed to be a reason for good results at the contest. If this will be the same for Armenia in 2016 will be seen in may 2016.
There was a kind of hope, as every year a kind of rumors and at the end there was the final confirmation of the TRT broadcaster that Turkey definitely won't participate in 2016.
That means that there will be no return and it will be the fourth year in a row without Turkey in the contest.
There are still different possible reasons, some of the are mentioned others can be probably reasons. For sure the EBU knows that TRT isn't very happy about the Big 5 rule and the bad results Turkey had in the last participating years, at their point of view.
But there is no doubt that in times of european challenges and political discussion between countries the participation could have been a good sign. Bringing cultures and people together.
The Eurovision Song Contest would have been a bit more colorful, if Turkey would take part.
Till the return we stay with the memories we have about the times, when Turkey touched venues and people at home like this:
Last year this band already participated at the national final of the cyprus broadcaster, was voted on the first place by the jury but missed the ticket for Vienna.
This year the national broadcaster made the internal selection and decided that they will give the chance to this band.
"Minus One" is the name of the 5 guys, but for Stockholm it is clear that this band only wants plus points for their country.
Don't miss to read the upcoming weekly reports to get your quick update about the ESC2016!

Armenia since a lot of years try to send the right artist and song to the contest and finally to win it. Last years singer had a hard job at the Eurovision in Concert in Amsterdam and also in Copenhagen after some statements about the later winner of the contest Conchita Wurst. Aram MP3 seamed not to be very tolerant, even multiple telling to the eurovision fans that it have been jokes and that he wouldn‘t be homophobic.
Any how the taste of a not tolerant artist and country kept at the contest. Perhaps this reason or he fact of this years theme „building bridges“, last years victory of Conchita and her calling for more tolerance could have been inspiration for the armenian broadcaster to select this year a very special entry with a kind of message.
Usually the EBU likes to repeat considering that the Eurovision Song Contest can‘t be used for political messages. And Armenia isn‘t doing that. At most a political statement. „Don‘t deny“ will be the song and it will be performed by a group with artist from all five continents.
If this will be the solution for the so desired victory? After the announcement that Australia will participate at the contest this project idea seams a bit weaker.

But at the end it will be once again the audience of the Eurovision deciding, if the song will pass to the final or not and which ranking on the scoreboard Armenia will get. The only thing you can be sure about is the fact that Eurovision On Top will be observing the way of Armenia and keep you informed.
