Farid Mamedov – Azeri Eurovision Representative 2013

We got it right – Farid Mammadov will represent Azerbaijan at Eurovision 2013 with the song “Hold Me”. The mid tempo ballad won the right to represent Azerbaijan in Sweden this May.


He was among the favorites and won the 10 act final. With no Turkey at Eurovision we are expecting him to pick up the Turkish diaspora but it is a strong mid tempo ballad and the first time that Azerbaijan will send a solo male singer to the contest. Azerbaijan has never failed to make the Grand Final at Eurovision. Can Farid maintain that record?

    • Agree Piotr – We had been following Farid tand all the contestants over the 3 month selection process and he was our favorite for the title in Azerbaijan. Did you see his performance of “Love Is Blind”? It was amazing. We caould be back in Baku next year?

  1. I’m excited for Azerbaijan to be represented by such a talented and attractive guy! He’ll be one of the best in the finals, I’m sure.
