The official videoclip of the Azerbaijani Esc 2018 entry.
Azerbaijan’s official video clip for this year’s eurovision song contest , “X My Heart”, has been released a few minutes ago on YouTube. The visualization of the song was done in Greece, under the direction of the Roula Koutroumbeli.
After the official release of “X My Heart” and warm welcome from the audience (it has already reached the top of the i-tunes charts in Slovenia and entered the top100 of the Netherlands and Norway), it’s time to see the official video clip of the song.
While the Dream Team is preparing for the stage appearance of Aisel in Lisbon directed by the Greek choreographer Fokas Evangelinos, we now can see the X My Heart video clip, filmed in various areas of Athens and Thebes, early last month..
Director of the video clip is Roula Koutroumbeli, as mentioned above, who has more than 20 years of experience in theater, participating in dozens of successful performances of the National Theater of Greece. A great step in her career was her participation in the Athens Olympics, as a choreographer assistant to Dimitris Papaioannou. For this new professional challenge she said:
“When I first heard the song I felt optimism, happiness, innocence and excitement. It was clear to me from the beginning that I should use a child in the video clip. The child symbolizes Aisel’s inner childhood and helped me to describe all the above feelings I felt when I heard the song. When we communicate with the child we hide within us, we feel that everything is possible, that “we can cross our hearts and throw the protective walls” … as the lyrics of the song say. I am very happy to have worked with the multi-talented musician and singer Aisel and I wish her the best and best success in the Eurovision Song Contest”.
This year’s Azerbaijan press release ends with the wish that the X My Heart video clip conquers the hearts of all those who will be on the Aisel route to Lisbon.
