/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The semifinal of Eurovision 2006 is due in Greece
today. Armenia will for the first time represented at the contest
by singer Andre with a song titled "Without your love". As head of
the voting project of the Armenian Public Television Ruben Muradyan
told PanARMENIAN.Net, residents of Armenia will have the possibility
to vote for the singer they liked via SMS or a phone call. The phone
number will be announced just at the beginning of the contest.

Voting service will be available within ten minutes.

Several calls from the same number are allowed. As R. Muradyan remarked
that Armenia will benefit from the big number of votes since it will
prove the interest of the Armenian audience. Armenian Diaspora can
view the contest via local channels. For example, Armenians in France
will watch the French channel, since the information on the screen
and the phone numbers vary depending on the state. It should also
be noted that the contest rule prohibits residents of any state from
voting in favor of its representative.
