Last year Azerbaijan won the first official edition of Türkvizyon, the pan-Eurasian contestant bringing together Turkic talent. Azerbaijan, Belarus and Ukraine fielded contestants. And so did the Altai Republic, Bashkortostan and Gagauzia.
Azerbaijan is keen to keep a good thing going, and is already on the hunt for this year’s singer. It will choose its entry from the winner of ‘Azerbaycanin sesi’ (the Voice of Azerbaijan)! The live shows start soon and take place every Thursday at 21:30 AZST time (Baku time). Keen to woo viewers, producer Günay Firudinqizi has promised that this won’t merely be a repeat of The Voice of Turkey.
Last year Azerbaijan won the whole thing with Farid Hasanov and the song “Yasa”. Let’s listen to the winning song again, which scored 210 points in the final!
Would you like to see Farid compete in Eurovision next year for Azerbaijan? And who would you like to see represent Azerbaijan in Türkvizyon? Comment below!
