AySel and Arash took time out of their Moscow schedule to speak to esctoday.com's Russell Davies about their experience of the contest so far.
From their shock and surprise at the stage pyros and the dangers of hairspray,to the possibility of recording a multi-language album in the future, the Azeri pair talk at length about the preparations for their performance in the second semifinal on 14th May. And in what may come as a disappointment for some fans, they confess that they are close – but just good friends! In any case, the Azerbaijan delegation is taking things in its stride now the nerves have passed: "We are having fun" is the resounding take on Moscow, while the team has become "like brother and sister" during the three months leading up to the contest.
