Azerbaijan in Eurovision
Since its debut at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 in Belgrade Azerbaijan has competed every year, having its biggest success in 2011. Only after 4 years of competing at Eurovision, Azerbaijan managed to win the contest with Eldar and Nikki performing “Running Scared”. As a result, the Eurovision Song Contest was held in Baku for the very first time in 2012.
Last year the broadcaster Ictimai internally selected Aisel as their representative in Lisbon. It marked the very first time Azerbaijan did not participate in a Eurovision final since their debut in 2008, as Aisel’s entry “X my Heart”, composed by Dimitris Kontopoulos and staged by Fokas Evangelinos, finished 11th in the first semi-final with 94 points.
