Elnur Hüseynov was born in Turkmenistan, represented Azerbeijan in the ESC 2008 and won "The Voice of Turkey" in 2015.
Elnur Hüseynov, the first Azeri representative in the ESC, entered the 4th season of "O Ses Türkiye" (Turkish version of "The Voice") winning the whole competition on February 18th, 2015.
No one can say that his victory was a shock since all his performances along the weeks were highly praised both by the juries and the audience.
Another curiosity is related to the coaches since 3 out of 4 were former Turkish representatives: Mazhar Alanson &Özkan Uğur (part of MFO, Turkey 1985 & 1988), Gökhan Özoğuz (vocalist of Athena, Turkey 2004) and Hadise (Turkey 2009).
However Elnur's coach was the only one with no Eurovision bond, Ebru Gündeş.
We recall you that in space of 7 months Elnur is the second Eurovision Artist that manages to win "The Voice", in July 2014 Rui Drumond (Portugal, 2005) won the Portuguese version of the same show.
Below you can watch of one the Elnur Hüseynov's performances at " O Ses Türkiye".

What a strange performance! Two twins connected by their hair and a sun rising by the hand of a portuguese man! Well, at least the singers that won Eurojunior are doing a great vocal job! Russia will only do it because it's Russia! There are better performances in this semifinal!
The land of fire starting a fire with some acrobatics to give more movement to this ballad. If you remember Maya Sar from Bosnia, you will understand that this song has nothing new! Th eperformance is good!
One of the best performances of this semifinal coming from an average song. This is Eurovision - the capacity of transforming a very regular into somethins spectacular for the viewers. Is it already in the final! Probably fighting for a Top 5!

The modern cinderella of eurovision Azerbaijan announced today the song, which will represent the Eurovision host of 2012 in Copenhagen. The land of fire, which lighted the fire as host, will try again to start a fire in 2014. Dilara Kazimova was selected in a kind of eurovision casting show and won some weeks ago this show and the song was released today. The most eastern country of eurovision just started in 2008 in Serbia taking part and made as new cover a 8th place, until today the worst ranking on the scoreboard, since 2009 the land of fire only had top 5 rankings. Azerbaijan will sing in the first semi final his very nice ballad and will be one of two ballads in this semi final and fight once again for a ticket to the final, where the country until today never missed.
