LIVE PERFORMANCE

OPINION

It’s an okay ballad and I love the fact that it’s entirely in Armenian but other than that there’s nothing that stands out about this song for me.

PREDICTION

I’m sure there will be a lot more ballads that have more impact that this one so I don’t think this will qualify.
