Last week Azerbaijan’s national broadcaster Ictimai TV anounced that they will opt for an internal selection this year. We don’t yet know who they will choose, but today eurovisionaz.com dropped a few clues. The first was a picture of angel wings. The second was the phrase “The Unexpected Comeback“. Naturally all you Eurovision sleuths are now asking yourself, “Who represented Azerbaijan in recent years with angel wings?” The answer is, of course, The Voice of Turkey‘s latest winner Elnur Huseynov. But there’s more…
Turkish news site Radikal recently ran a story entitled “Elnur goes to Eurovision again!“. Azerbaijan’s Eurovision broadcaster Ictimai TV swiftly and firmly denied the news. But a few days later they removed their denial from their web site.
The last piece of evidence may be the most telling. Gunay Musayeva, one of Elnur’s best friends, sent her best wishes to Elnur recently with a ‘happy birthday’ pic. She wrote: “We are waiting for your surprise song and your great voice. You will win in Europe with your talent.” Where and what will he win in Europe?

Azerbaijan will anounce their song and representative on 15 March. Do you think Elnur Huseynov is their man for Vienna? Would you mind?
