Hello welcome to my series of quick takes designed to get you ready for Eurovision 2019. Just some quick thoughts / my take on each of the 41 songs this year. The countries are in alphabetical order so without further ado: Azerbaijan.
Personal Score: 11 out of 41
My Prediction: Q
This is honestly kind of an odd duck of a song. We’ve got some traditional elements and some really contemporary elements mushed together into a vaguely dance beat. This really works for me but I could see how it’s a little too same-y for most people but I think on the other hand this is such an earworm of a song and I kind of hear it all the time after its over? I think will easily pass through as long as the staging is even reminiscent of the video which gives it a rave underwater vibe. Azerbaijan hasn’t ever skimped on the staging so hopefully we’ll see this in the final. At the very least this will get votes because the internets collective thirst for Chingiz is REAL. Shut up about it!
The only downside of this song is that I have no idea what his voice actually sounds like and also this is one of those songs that could really be horrific live because its very based on a certain vibe and cadence to his voice but I have a lot of faith and worse entries from passed through for the fire nation which tends to have a fairly strong voting block.
