The Eurovision Story so Far

In 2011 the duo Eldar & Nikki brought the Eurovision trophy on home soil with their song Running scared, and gave the chance to the Land of fire to host the competition next year in the capital city of Baku.
In 2018 Azerbaijan was represented by Aisel and her song X my heart, despite her dynamic performance she didn’t advance to the Grand Final. In 2019 Azerbaijan selected internally Chingiz to defend the Azeri colors in Tel Aviv with his entry Truth and did really well as he finished 8th in the Grand final scoreboard.
Efendi’s ESC 2020 entry, Cleopatra, may have not reached the stage in Rottedam Ahoy as the contest was cancelled but will have a second chance this year to reach her Eurovision destination in Rotterdam.
