Tsrukyan

Mihran Tsarukyan (Միհրան Ծառուկյան) was born in Yerevan, Armenia in 1987. He is a well-known pop artist and actor. His Facebook page has nearly 40,000 followers and his official YouTube channel has just over 40,000 subscribers. Much of his fame comes from his roles as a main cast member on the show Hard Life (Դժվար ապրուստ) from 2012-2013, and on Full House (Ֆուլ Հաուս) from 2014-2016.

He began his media career in 2006, making his music debut on the first season of the show Hay Superstar, Armenia’s version of American Idol. Rather scandalously, he made it to the final three contestants, but was disqualified from the show on suspicion of having manipulated the audience votes in his favor. He still managed to get a record deal, and released his first album in 2009. Tsarukyan shot his first music video in 2011, and since then has continued to release new music and flirtatious, romantic video clips each year.

Musically, Tsarukyan is best recognized for his emotional love songs and moving ballads. His biggest hit to date is the heart melting 2015 duet with his real-life wife Arpi Gabrielyan, “Anhnar e” (անհնար է/ Is Impossible). The clip has 12.4 million YouTube views, and countless fan tribute videos. Another one of his most popular songs is the catchy, upbeat “Siro Kino” (սիրո քինո/ Love Movie) from 2011. The video clip features a simple dance sequence that will have listeners playing the clip on repeat trying to learn it!

While Tsarulyan has generally stayed away from politics and nationalism, his 2012 track “Gol” (Գոլ/ Goal) in support of Armenia’s national football team.
