Armenia will be represented by Gor Sujyan (Գոռ Սուջյան), leadsinger of rock band Dorians.
Update: A small change has been made, it's Dorians for Malmö now, since the band is already Gor's band on the Eurovision stage, the act will go by the bands name.
The song Lonely Planet is chosen out of four in a preselection show on March 2, all songs were performed by Gor Sujyan.
The song is written by Tony Iommi and Vardan Zadoyan.
