Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009
Armenia, the country most expected to be hit by the introduction of 50% jury votes, have proved undeterred, and are still offering messy ethno in a vain attempt to befoul the top 10.
With their duet about jam jars, getting drunk, or dancing (I bet they don't even know themselves), Inga & Anush will be recreating the Armenian deaf scoiety's Christmas party rendition of Riverdance.
