After that, songs, competitions and festivals began. Everything was taken by itself… – How many times has “ Are you participating in Eurovision?

– This is the fourth time. – Where do you get this stubbornness from? Does it come from a character?.. – Yes. I like to achieve what I want (laughs). But this is a multi-level, popular, well-maintained competition. For me personally, as a singer, this is interesting. As a patriot, of course I would like to represent my country well. And as a singer, I understand that this competition is a good artistic experience.

– What does performing at Eurovision mean to you as a performer? After all, after the victory of Azerbaijan in this competition, it is a great responsibility to represent our country in this competition.

– What if you have to sing a duet?..

But if such a decision is made, I will not doubt the objectivity of the judges. because year after year we show better results - this includes both solos and duets. – But still, duets work better, don't they? ? – This is a personal matter. People are different, destinies are different (laughs).

– They support me. Thank them for that.
