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.
