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.

In 2019 Azerbaijan opted for an internal selection and selected Chingiz to fly the Azerbaijani flag at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv with his entry Truth, achieving a 8th place in the Grand Final.
