As we previously reported, Azerbaijan’s Dilara Kazimova recently visited the beautiful Hungarian capital Budapest and met Kállay-Saunders András. They appeared on-air in a morning chat show and after that both of them performed Dilara’s song “Start a Fire”. We’re dying to see the video of Dilara singing. But for now we’re happy that András has uploaded his performance to his YouTube channel. What do you think of the Kállay-Saunders covers? Does he make a beautiful ballad even more beautiful?

Maybe the Azeri delegation can learn from Hungary on how to make an uptempo song instead of sending ballads & sad songs.

Now all I would want is for Dilara’s video to be of her performing “Running” as that is something I would most definitely want to see, unfortunately this is not the case. But she should at least return the favour.

Although it fits his own song, I’m not a fan of his singing, and I guess it does not fit this (considering the “drama” in the original recording). And he sings in tune!! Anyway, I am still waiting for a live Dilara version that does it justice. I hope it is not only FX and staging in May, for it would be disappointing!

For that clown, (with his opinion) who constantly sings dithyrambs about exclusivity of ‘start a fire’ and who claimed (moronic thought however) that none of all contestants would be able to sing this song as ‘perfect’ as it does his beloved azeri ‘singing goddess’ Dilara. The guy, how you’ve noticed, sang this Swedish song with Armenian duduk in it just beautifully, and i’m sure there are dozens who will do it even better. I guess Hungary will be giving the highest points to this, in may. The azeri esc delegation is surely, already have taken care of this. The same… Read more »
