Together with our musical producer Isa Melikov, brilliant vocal coach Alex Panayi and ‘Truth’ songwriter Borislav Milanov we went through so many singers’ profiles to select ones who will bring their own touch to my song and make it even more colorful for the live performance.
Since the first rehearsal it all worked perfectly between us, like a beautiful harmony.
Chingiz was selected via an internal selection in order to represent the Land of Fire aka Azerbaijan at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest with his song Truth.
Azerbaijan in Eurovision
Azerbaijan aka The Land of Fire joined the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008 and has won the competition once, namely in 2012 with Eldar & Nikki‘s Running scared. The following year the country welcomed the Eurovision bandwagon for the very first time in its majestic capital Baku.
The Caucasian nation has partaken in Europe’s favorite television show 11 times, having competed in the event every year since its debut in 2008.
In 2018 Azerbaijan went internal and selected Aisel to fly the Azerbaijani flag at the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon with her entry X my heart, despite an extraordinary performance she failed to qualify to the Grand Final.
