Azerbaijan in Eurovision
Azerbaijan debuted at 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 12 times, having competed in the event every year since its debut in 2008.
Samira Efendi was set to represent Azerbajian at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with her entry ‘ Cleopatra‘, but the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hereafter Ictimai invited the artist to represent Azerbaijan at the 2021 Eurovision edition.
