Mrs Aliyeva went on to say that it remarkable how the country has managed to perform consistently well at Eurovision in it’s brief history – where they have not failed to finish in the Top 10 in the Grand Final since they entered the contest in 2008-  and puts it down to “good team work”.

  1. I was impressed how much this woman is doing to support her country’s culture. The singer (Farid) was performing really well on the contest this year.
