Azerbaijan and Lithuania share a lot more than a Soviet past. They both have fielded Eurovision contestants who love throwing down with “Love is Blind.”

“Hold Me”, Farid Mammadov’s winning entry at the Azeri national selection, has received really positive reviews on our discussion post. But what do you think of his cover of Donny Montell’s Eurovision 2012 song? Let us know below!

I think that Farid is better in Love Is Blind that in Hold Me.I like Donny but Farid is better.Donny has better accident and know better English….yes.But Farid has better voice… Hold Me in live version is very good than in studio version,but he sings better in Love Is Blind

Farid did fabulously in Eurovision 2013 with his song, but Love Is Blind will always belong to Donny (and though Farid did a pretty good job with it, his English was pretty bad). Love both guys, but again, Donny’s natural charisma and moves make this one his, always. Adorable guy! 🙂

Interesting interpretation. I’m not agree, that Farid sings without knowing what this song is about. Sounds like he has experienced it.

Hold me is a very nice song! Top 5 songs in final for sure! 12 points for Azerbaijan!

This fellow just lacks the soul, he’s singing without knowing the meaning of the words it seems. Besidesn his pronoucnation of English is as bad as Donny’s. I prefer the original version by far!

Nice cover! This shows exactly how talented Farid is! He has a great song for this Eurovision and I think that he deserves to be in the top 3 of the final! 12 points to Azerbaijan!
