This year Azerbaijan chose its representative internally without organising a pre-selection. Today the broadcaster confirmed that their representative for Vienna will be Elnur Hüseynov!
In 2008 Elnur represented Azerbaijan when the country first entered the song contest. Back then, his and Samir Javadzadeh‘s entry ‘Day After Day’ placed eighth in the final. After that he has for instance performed in musicals. Earlier this year he won The Voice of Turkey.
Elnur’s Eurovision entry is called ‘Hour Of The Wolf’. It is penned by Nicolas Rebscher, Nicklas Lif, Lina Hansson and Sandra Bjurman. Azerbaijan competes in the second half of second semi-final.
