We remind you that the internally selection was among five artists who competed with song created by composers originated from Azerbaijan.
The five nominated artists are:
- Azer Nasibov
- Humay Aslanova & Amrah Musayev
- Leyla Izzatova
- Turan & Tural Bağmanovlar
All of them performed their participation live in a studio and these performances were videotaped. A focus group will evaluate the five performances and they will decide the artist and the song with which Azerbaijan will be represented at Eurovision 2023. In fact, only one candidate has a foreign co-writer among the songwriters.
They only year that Azerbaijan appeared once with a locally produced song was in 2008, which was Azerbaijan’s first year competing in Eurovision Song Contest. This year the country will compete for the second time with a song exclusively from an Azeri team.
Last year’s representative was Nadir Rustamli with the song “Fade to Black” and he finished at 16th place in the Grand Final with 106 points. However, it is the first entry ever to qualify for the Final with zero points from the public vote in the semi-final.
We want to remind you that Azerbaijan will perform at the second half of the first semi final, at 9th of May 2023.
Stay tuned on EurovisionFun for all the news regarding Azerbaijan’s participation in Eurovison 2023!
