This year, the Azerbaijani broadcaster decided to internally select their artist, and they have chosen former participant, Elnur Huseynov to represent their country once again. Elnur was part of the first ever Azerbaijani Eurovision act back in 2008, as part of the duo Elnur & Samir (or as some will remember, the angel and the devil). The duo, with their song Day after Day reached 8th place in the final, which is a respectable result for a debut!
This year, however, it will be Elnur representing Azerbaijan on his lonesome, with the song Hour of the Wolf. He is already very popular amongst neighbouring countries after his recent appearance as a contestant of the Voice Turkey, where he set a record for the most votes received – over a million! Will this translate to Eurovision success? We will have to wait and see!
