Luna moon her up! Fresh from her appearances in pre-parties in Moscow and Israel, Azerbaijan’s Aisel is continuing her promotional tour across continental Europe, making Bulgaria her latest stop.
The siren from Baku rocked a relaxed combination of black blazer and ripped jeans as she visited the ambassador to Azerbaijan in Bulgaria, asking for the support the Azerbaijani community. Given that Bulgaria will be voting in her semi-final, there’s no doubt going to be some lunar-level local support.
Aisel also performed yet another unique rendition of her Eurovision entry “X My Heart” on the popular Bulgarian television show Slavi’s Show. Looking ethereal and effervescent, the performance highlighted Aisel’s classical training, and provided a whole new take on the dance-heavy track.
Cementing her view about her Eurovision experience, Aisel reiterated that it’s more about the journey – not the destination. She told media:
“The final position is not of my immediate interest. To me what counts the most is that I have the chance to expose my music to so many people from so many different countries and inspire them. Therefore, I feel that I already won by living the Eurovision Experience”.
Aisel has teamed with the Eurovision “Dream Team” for Lisbon. It includes staging supremo Fokas Evaggelinos, who previously staged Ukraine and Russia in 2008, Greece in 2009 and more recently Russia in 2016.
Aisel will continue her promotional tour through Russia, Albania and Montenegro. She will open the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.
