Azerbaijan has decided. Eldar Gasimov and Nigar Jamal will represent the Caucasian country this year at Eurovision in Düsseldorf. Five acts competed in the Azerbaijani selection Milli seçim turu, where they have covered both Eurovision and traditional Azerbaijani folk songs.
It was expected that one singer would win tonight, but it has been eventually decided that Eldar Gasimov and Nigar Jamal will be the fourth Azerbaijani representatives in the Eurovision Song Contest. As you all know, tonight's show was intended to select the singer only. The song will be selected in the coming days or weeks.
As it was unexpected that two participants would be chosen to represent the country, our poll featured all contestants individually. Nigar Jamal won the overall voting with 23.4%, while Eldar Gasimov ended up 4th with 17.2%. Threrefore, their joint score is a respectable 40.6%.
