Baku Calling

Baku Calling

From Cyprus we had to Azerbaijan and the land of Fire. Azerbaijan debuted in the contest in 2008 in Belgrade, Serbia and has gone on to become one of the most successful countries in the contest. In 2011 they won the contest in Dusseldorf with “Running Scared” by Ell & Nikki.

On the Eurojury from Azerbaijan today is one half of that duet Eldar Gasimov. Since winning Eurovision Eldar has become a household name in Azerbaijan and has released a number of singles. He has also become heavily involved in Turkvision, featuring in a number of national selections. Eldar has just returned from Kazakhstan where he had been doing promotion.
