Series summary

Season 1 (2016-17)

Season 1 of Depi Evratesil was announced on 1 July 2016.[1] It was later confirmed that former Armenian Eurovision entrants Essaï Altounian, Inga and Anush Arshakyan, Hayko, Aram Mp3, and Iveta Mukuchyan would serve as judges on the show, each creating their own team of contestants and mentoring them through the show in a similar way to The Voice.[2] Contestants took part in auditions from 22 October to 12 November 2016, where those successful were selected by the judges to be part of one of their teams.[3] Afterwards, the contestants battled each other from 19 November to 3 December to make the semifinals.[4][5] The semifinals were held on 10 and 17 December. Artsvik was declared the winner of Depi Evratesil on the final held on 24 December.[6][7] A mix of jury voting and televotes determined the results in the semifinals and final, while the judges decided who would advance in the earlier rounds.[8][1]
