In our case we have the winner of OGAE Armenia members — «Moroccana», we have the winner of Pulic voting «Jamankn e», but after summarizing the points we can see that OGAE Song Contest 2016 Armenian entry selection winner with 20 points is Sirusho with her song «Mi Togh Indz Menak»!!! In both voting the song got second place which lead her to end-up with highest points. Here are the combined results of OSC 2016 Armenian entry selection.
