Azerbaijan have been praying to the Eurovision gods and they have sent them a “Miracle”. Samra Rahlimi will be going to Stockholm to represent her country at Eurovision 2016. The song will be debuted some time over the weekend, though our sources say it’s a slightly more up-tempo number than recent Azerbaijan entries.
About Samra Rahimli
Samra made a name for herself recently competing on the first series of Ses Azerbaycan, the Azeri version of the popular The Voice franchise. Samra made it all the way to the final but ultimately finished as a runner-up. She also participated in the Voice of Turkey in 2015, placing in the quarterfinals. It’s understood that she was already being considered for Azerbaijan’s Eurovision entry before her time on the Voice was over, though, so the result does not seem to have been a factor. Check out some of Samra’s Voice performances below:
Samra will become the second consecutive The Voice representative for Azerbaijan. Last year’s entrant, Elnur Huseynov, was the victor of the Voice of Turkey back at the start of 2015. It’s clearly something that has worked for Azerbaijan before, so why break from the formula?
