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?
