The 2016 Azerbaijani representative at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, Samra, has filmed her postcard ready for the contest next month.

Filmed at a number of locations around the country including the Heydar Aliyev Centre, the Old City’s antique shops and the Baku Boulevard, Samra and the Azerbaijani team planned and filmed together with the Swedish national broadcaster, SVT, in order to produce the country’s Eurovision postcard.

Check out a sneak peek of Azerbaijan’s postcard below!

The filming of Samra’s postcard took place during her promotional tour, in which she has visited and performed in a number of countries around Europe over the past and upcoming weeks, including visits to countries such as Israel, Malta and Greece.

Samra was internally selected to represent Azerbaijan at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest by the country’s national broadcaster, İTV, back in March.

The 21-year-old performer, who shot to fame following her participation in both The Voice Turkey and The Voice Azerbaijan, will compete in the first semi-final of the contest on the 10 May where she will perform in position 14 in the running order.

Be sure to check out Samra’s newly launched website.

    Its my 10th most liked song on the 1st SF ~ My point
    But im not sure if Azerbaijan will qualify to the Final with Samra this year,
    Most maybe for the first time ever both Azerbaijan & Greece will not be finalists qualifiers..

    By the way, its really unfortunate that there is all this awful tension between Azerbaijan vs Armenia..
    They are for real in war state with each other..
    Really sad 4 EuroVision that 2 of our participants countries are in this terrible conflict..
    ——————————————–
    Maybe someday in the future these countries
    can manage to have not peace necessarily with each other but truce..
    Even if they will still hate/dislike each other but at least we won’t have any more casualties of neither azerbaijanis or armenians.
