How do you find his voice? The Azeri 2019 hopeful, Chingiz has shared an acoustic version of his powerful Eurovision entry Truth on YouTube!

It was circa one month before, when Azerbaijan revealed their representative for Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv. Following several weeks of speculation, it was finally unveiled that Chingiz Mustafayev (aka Chingiz) had been selected to defend the Caucasian country’s colours this year on the Eurovision stage.

Together with his name’s announcement by the Azeri broadcaster İctimai TV, the same day saw the release of his entry for the contest, this entitled Truth. A dance-pop/electropop sound, which was penned by Borislav MilanovTrey Campbell, Bo J, Pablo Dinero, Hostess and Chingiz himself.

A few weeks before he takes to the stage in Tel Aviv, Chingiz decided to give us a taste of his live vocal capabilities by sharing an acoustic version of his song on his official YouTube channel. Listen to it and don’t forget to share your opinion with us!

“Making of” video also out

Besides the acoustic version of his Eurovision entry, a “Making of” video of his official clip for Truth was also posted on YouTube. How was this filmed under extreme secrecy, while he was already internally chosen by the broadcaster? Check this out:

Following the revelation of the running order for the two semi-final evenings, we now know that Azerbaijan will throw the curtains of the second semi-final on 16 May.

Can Chingiz bring them back to the final and achieve Azerbaijan’s first Top 10 placing after 2013?
