This year has been one of the most diverse for the different genre's of musical entries. Azerbaijan seem to be bucking that trend, as the teaser is very different to what we have become to expect from the nation. Earlier this year the broadcaster revealed that Chingz Mustafayev, Tofiq Haciyev, Leman, and Samira Efendi had all been shortlisted as possible internal artists. This announcement will leave fans guessing, and wanting more. In half an hour the clip has had nearly 5000 views, showing how eager fans are for the entry.
Last year the country was represented by Aisel who sang "X My Heart", unfortunately she failed to qualify for the grand final. This was the first time in Azerbaijan's short history in the contest that they have not done this. It seems that the broadcaster are eager to restore their place in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest.
