Well hello there! Welcome to the eighth summary article in ESC Views’ Pre-Contest Vote 2014! If you haven’t heard about it and how this entire system will work, feel free to click this fabulous link to take you to the ‘Launch Page’ of the competition. As we manage to compile more and more of these articles, they will be added to the Launch Page, so you can freely hop between all competing 37 entries! Right, shall we get onto the next country?
This is how we’re running this series of articles in which we’re going to cover all 37 entries for this year:
- We’re going to take on these articles in the running order for 2014 (Armenia is first, Latvia is second etc). We’ll do two articles a day.
- We’ll refer back to the Song Presentation or NF Review of the song. We’ll provide you with the video so you can have a listen (if you haven’t managed to listen to it yet…which is highly unlikely!)
- We’ll also give you a few words from both of us while giving the song a score out of 12.
- Finally, there’ll be a poll below for you guys to vote and give us your points on the song!
Got it? 🙂
Next up is
Azerjibban Azerbaijan who will be represented by Dilara Kazimova with her song “Start A Fire”. Dilara was originally selected around two weeks before her song was released..probably due to the fact that they needed to make the song in the first place. We did a review of the song the day it was released and if you haven’t heard “Start A Fire” as of now, have a listen below!
Rory – When I first heard Azerbaijan’s song, I was like…”oh, ok..another ballad”, and I still think that basically, but it’s growing on me.. but very slowly! Work on your accent, girl! Eesh. Score: 5 points out of 12.
James – Anyone who knows me will know I am not a fan of Azerbaijan as a country.. but credit where credit’s due, I really love their 2014 song. It is understated and beautiful, a ballad with an actual tune for once!!! Score: 7 points of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Azerbaijani song, what do you think of it? Tell us by voting in the poll!
Did you vote? Well by the end of this series, we’ll know how many of you fans love/like/hate Azerbaijan’s song! However, stay tuned to ESC Views today, as James will be taking on Ukraine and Belgium!
