  1. I wouldnt mind jazz but it is a bit unwanted genre in Eurovision,No?

    Probably something like this is coming
    Good luck Aisel

    • I don’t think she’ll actually be sending a jazz song, her style is gonna be “Eurovisionized” before the contest. Just like how Dihaj didn’t send something that alternative, and Skeletons still had mainstream appeal.

  2. Is she anyhow related to the 2013 Mammadov? :)
    Best of luck!

  3. Good choice on paper. Let’s hope they do go for some eurovisionized product.

  4. Quite promising..I hope for quality..
