The decision was made by a 50/50 combination of jury/televoting. The jury consisted of:

This year, the Armenian broadcaster ARMTV has chose to select its representative for Eurovision through the show "Depi Evratesil" (To Eurovision). The format will select the artist for Eurovision, but not the song.
The final of Depi Evratesil will take place on 24 December 2016.
Armenia has been in Eurovision since 2006, participating 10 times (all the years except 2012), with very good results. Best results are two fourth positions (2008 and 2014). They have qualified for the Semi-final every year except 2011.
