Azerbaijan have confirmed that they will be joining us in Vienna for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest!
Ictimai TV, the Azeri broadcaster, confirmed the news earlier today.
The news isn’t too surprising: Azerbaijan have been very pro-active at Eurovision since their debut in 2008.
That being said, there were some eyebrows raised when Ictimai “doubted” the results of the 2014 contest. This was after Dilara Kazimova finished a highly disappointing 22nd place in the final, the lowest in the country’s history.
Even with their result in Copenhagen though, Azerbaijan remain one of the most successful countries in recent years, having finished in the top five in five consecutive years, also winning with Ell & Nikki in 2011.
They’re sure to be a force to be reckoned with again and we’re excited to see just who they’ll be sending this year!
