Armenia-Azerbaijan: Eurovision pondering

No stranger to controversy when it comes to Eurovision in light of the still unresolved conflict over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh, popbitch wonders if Armenia and Azerbaijan can settle their differences in the international music competition. Meanwhile, writing on HayFanat, Armanski says that the professionalism behind Azerbaijan's entry by Safura Alizadeh, and especially through the effective use of Facebook and Twitter, is worthy of praise and an example that Armenia should follow.

    Dear Safura, maybe you don’t know that you have always got a lot of fans in Armenia. Thousands of girls and boys have fallen in love with you. I think that next year the concurse that i don’t like at all will take place in a beautiful city of Baku. My question: what is your favourite song of eurovision 2009?

    Thanks a lot for the kind words! So far my favorite are the Georgian and that girl from Portugal but that’s because I haven’t heard everything. I am sure there are plenty more awesome singers going to be there!)))’

    Safura is over exposed by the marketing and PR campaign from Azerbaijan. For 17 years of age, she sings well but is not fully developed as a performer yet. Azerbaijan hired back up singers that are from the USA. Safura’s Costumes are from an Italian designer and her choreography is from Beyonce’s staff.
    At least all the talent for beautiful Eva Rivas is Armenian or has roots to Armenia.
