The Azeri team have been going all out to get to number one at the Eurovision Song Contest, and after qualifying from last night's semi final, achieved their goal in that they drew number one as their starting position. This makes their challenge even tougher as traditionally, songs in the latter part of the draw have been said to have an advantage.
Opening the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 is Safura’s latest and arguably biggest challenge on her entire Eurovision Song Contest path but it’s also fun. According to the results of the draw, the Azerbaijani artist will perform as the first act on the Big Night on 29th May, a much craved but also much feared spot for a great many Eurovision performers.
“Opening the Eurovision Final is challenging fun for me” says Safura who is prepared to do her best and produce a lasting impression on the audience “That’s is a huge responsibility” adds the 17-year-old artist.
Three opening songs have won the Eurovision Song Contest, the last time was way back in 1984 when Herrey's did it for Sweden with Diggi-Loo Diggi-Ley. Azerbaijan competes for the third time in the Eurovision Song Contest, their best placing was third last year.
