As in normal weeks – the weekly tele votes are combined to the online poll votes and the Jury votes after Friday’s performance. This then gives you a your qualifier fo the final.
The final results were as follows
2 points: Ülviyyə Baxışova
3 points: Vüqar Əliyev
4 points: Oksana Rizayeva
5 points: Group Avantaj Estrada
6 points: Zəka Zeynalov
7 points: Məhrəm Qurbanzadə
8 points: Adil Baxışlı
10 points: Elton İbrahimov
12 points: Fərəh Hadıyeva
So our 3rd finalist will be the beautiful Fərəh Hadıyeva that we had tipped following her Monday night evening performance.
Last Monday she performed Maria Haukaas Storeng’s song from Norway 2008 “Hold On Be Strong” – which seems to be a popular song in Azerbaijan as this is the third time this song has been sung in this years Selection. A good Eurovision song never grows tiresome.
