During her promotional tour, Azerbaijan’s representative AISEL enchanted the Bulgarian public.

Aysel Mammadova, professionally known as AISEL, is busy with her promo-tour prior to participating in Eurovision 2018. All set to present her entry X my heart (pronounced as “cross my heart”, composed/written by Dimitris Kontopoulos, Tim Bran and Sandra Bjurman), she already visited Greece, Moscow and Israel. Next stop was Bulgaria, and the Azerbaijani singer musically mesmerized the country’s public.

Slavi’s Show

AISEL performed in Bulgaria’s popular talk show Slavi’s Show, hosted by Slavi Trifonov. She accompanied the show’s musical ensemble Ku-Ku Band on piano and sang a live version of X my heart, impressing with her instrumental- and vocal skills, as well as capturing the public with her charm.

Host Slavi Trifonov expressed his support for AISEL:

I wish you good luck… with this song I believe you stand a very good chance to win.


AISEL also visited the honourable ambassador of Azerbaijan in Bulgaria, Nargis Gurbanova. The artist shared her meeting on Intagram:

100 Kila and more

The Azerbaijani singer furthermore caught up with popular Bulgarian rapper Yavor Yanakiev, better known as 100 Kilo, among other promotional activities. AISEL will continue her promo-tour in Russia, Albania and Montenegro. She is also preparing for the Lisbon stage, excited to share her music with a worldwide public:

“The final position is not of my immediate interest. To me what counts the most is that I have the chance to expose my music to so many people from so many different countries and inspire them. Therefore, I feel that I already won by living the Eurovision Experience.”

AISEL will perform X my heart from starting position 1 in the first half of Semi-Final 1 on Tuesday 8 May 2018.
