Armenia Wins Junior Eurovision Song Contest with Mama


Vladimir Arzumanyan, Armenia’s representative to Junior Eurovision

MINSK (Reuters) — Armenia won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday as a new generation continued eastern Europe’s domination of the continent’s most popular song competition.

And like the main contest, former communist countries from central and Eastern Europe dominate.

Vladimir Arzumanyan, a 12-year-old from Armenia, won the show with his song, Mama, beating Russia by one point. Serbia was third, followed by Georgia and host country, Belarus.
