Azerbaijan: More than 200 songs submitted for Eurovision 2023!

Some time ago Ictimai, the public broadcaster of Azerbaijan, begun searching for their new representative in Eurovision Song Contest 2023.

After an open call to artists and composers, the country is once again set to choose its representative for the 67th Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool through an internal selection. Those interested could send their performances, their demos or new songs exclusively for Eurovision to the channel, until yesterday, December 31.

The invitation of the public broadcaster, was of great interest to many composers and artists, as more than 200 songs were submitted to represent the country!

Vasif Mammadov, the Head of Delegation of Azerbaijan, spoke about the upcoming contest and mentioned that most of the 200 songs submitted belong to foreign composers:

“Our goal and desire with this is to have local composer’s music featured in competition. Based on the selection process, if local and foreign song meet the same criteria, we will prefer local song. That is, we really want the music of Azerbaijani composer to be played in the competition. Let’s demonstrate that we also have talented composers. I hope this can serve as a stimulus for years to come. Finally, in May we can use the phrase “we did our best” with peace of mind. It should be noted that the choice of song and representative is expected to be completed by the end of January.”

Apparently despite the great interest of foreign composers, the country intends to work with composers from Azerbaijan this year.
