"Snap" is a song by Armenian singer Rosa Linn. It was officially released on 19 March 2022 on all streaming platforms. The song is currently scheduled to represent Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy after being internally selected by Public Television of Armenia (AMPTV), Armenia's broadcaster for the Eurovision Song Contest.
The song was officially released on 19 March 2022, but a snippet of the song was leaked a week earlier.
Eurovision Song Contest
Armenia used an internal selection to determine its entry. Candidates rumoured to be in the running were Athena Manoukian, Saro Gevorgyan, Kamil Show and Rosa Linn. However, on 15 February 2022, AMPTV dismissed the claims that Linn had already been selected, stating that no decision had been made yet and that an announcement would come in March. On 4 March, it was reported in several Armenian media outlets that two singers were in the running to represent Armenia: Rosa Linn and Saro Gevorgyan.
Rosa Linn was announced as the chosen entrant on 11 March 2022.
According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big Five" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. On 25 January 2022, an allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. Armenia has been placed into the first semi-final, to be held on 10 May 2022, and has been scheduled to perform in the second half of the show.
