Azerbaijan 2013 || Farid Mammadov - Hold Me
« on: March 15, 2013, 12:04:11 PM »
Azerbaijan 2013


Farid Mammadov will represent Azerbaijan at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 with the song "Hold Me". The 21 year old singer has won the national final of Azerbaijan, Milli Seçim Turu 2013, yesterday evening.



Ten acts competed in the national final. Here is a list of the ten competing acts (winner Farid Mammadov in bold):

  • Leyla Kafari - "Pride"
  • Vugar Muradov - "Baby baby"
  • Valeriya Huseynzadeh - "If this is love"
  • Leyla Aliyeva - "Welcome to the sun"
  • Farah Hadiyeva - "We are one"
  • Nigar Huseynova - "I still believe"
  • Vlada Ahundova - "Big Time"
  • Ravana Aliyeva - "Lovely King"
  • Farid Mammadov - "Hold Me"
  • Aysel Babayeva - "Sleazy Mo"

Azerbaijan participates in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2008 and is one of the most successful countries of the last few years. Azerbaijan won the contest in 2011 with the song "Running Scared" performed by Eldar Gasimov and Nigar Jamal and the country never failed to qualify for the final. The worst result is an 8th place in the final in 2008.

Farid Mammadov will perform in the second semi-final on Thursday, 16 May.

Good luck, Azerbaijan!

A very nice song, even if songs like this have been several times in ESC during its history. What is the point with dancers? They are not needed in this performance, because the singer can sing well.

This will do good for sure. somehow i'm not so enthusiastic about that for the strong feeling this song was heard before in many versions (and i'm definitely not talking only of ESC songs)

I can't do anything to it, but this brings all the time Ireland 1987 to my mind. Could the reason be the song title?  :worry:

That's understandable, as both singers are longing for someone to hold them.  :)
