Jan Jan was the Armenian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 in Moscow performed by sister duo Inga and Anush. Sung in both English and Armenian, it inspired the Armenian dance of Nor Par.

The song qualified for the final in fifth place. In the final, it was performed sixth following Greece and preceding host country Russia. At the close of voting, it finished in 10th place with 99 points.

2015 winner Måns Zelmerlöw stated that "Jan Jan" was his favorite Eurovision song ever. Coincidentally, Inga also participated in the 2015 contest as a member of the group Genealogy.

Lyrics

Ho...

How can I stay when you are away?
What can I say if ya gonna tell me nothin'?
How can I smile when you are alone?
How can I be without me?
Without me you cannot be

Can't ya see, we aren't free?
Fixed like a tree to the holy ground
With my sound, gotta be always around
I wanna dance, don't ya stand, sister give your hand

Everybody, move your body, we are dancing nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up with the nor par
Everybody, move your body, we are dancing nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up with the nor par

Par garunki, par tsaghkunki
Mets huyseri, nor kyanqi nor par
Pare parqi, togh hogin govergi
Mer lerneri, dzoreri pare chi mari

Hey, ari party parenk, ari ari, jan jan
Hay parerin, jan asenq, ari yar, ari, jan jan
Hey, ari party parenk, ari ari, jan jan
Hay parerin, jan asenq, ari yar, ari, jan jan

Jumpin' up
Jumpin' up with the nor par
 
Jane jane dari darida...
Fari dari a pari dan deri da...
Taktuk taktuk taktuk taktuk taktuk taktuk...
Tak digdig da digdig tak digdig da...
Ombombe... dednde dednde dednde dednde dednda...
 
Nor par – dududududu
Nor par – dududududu
Let the music make you raise your hand
Sister, here we go
 
Everybody, move your body – nor par, nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up
 
Everybody, move your body, we are dancing nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up with the nor par
Jumpin' up, move your body, we are dancing nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up with the nor par

Ho...

How can I stay when you are away?
What can I say if ya gonna tell me nothin'?
How can I smile when you are alone?
How can I be without me?
Without me you cannot be

Can't ya see, we aren't free?
Fixed like a tree to the holy ground
With my sound, gotta be always around
I wanna dance, don't ya stand, sister give your hand

Everybody, move your body, we are dancing nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up with the nor par
Everybody, move your body, we are dancing nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up with the nor par

A dance for the spring, a dance for the flowers
This is the new glory dance for the big hopes
For new life, may it save your soul
The dances of our mountains and valleys never end

Hey, come and let’s dance this dance, come my dear
Let’s call the soul of the Armenian dances, come my love, come my dear
Hey, come and let’s dance this dance, come my love, come my dear
Let’s call the soul of the Armenian dances, come my love, come my dear

Jumpin' up
Jumpin' up with the nor par

Let the music make you raise your hand
Sister, here we go
 
Everybody, move your body – nor par, nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up
 
Everybody, move your body, we are dancing nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up with the nor par
Jumpin' up, move your body, we are dancing nor par
Everybody, must be ready, jumpin' up with the nor par
