Once again, İctimai Television has internally selected the Azerbaijani act for this year’s Eurovision. The song ‘Hour of the Wolf’ will be performed by Elnar Huseynov, the winner of the fourth series of the Turkish equivalent of ‘The Voice’.
Some avid viewers may remember Elnar as he represented Azerbaijan in their debut year in Belgrade, coming 8th that year. I’m sure this will be a target he is aiming to improve on, as well as showing his capability as a solo artist.
The music video will be released tomorrow. According to Elnar, the message behind is song is ‘every heart deserves a fight’.

Although this song is a ballad, I think it’s one of the nicer ballad offerings of this year, and I’m expecting a rather good result for Azerbaijan, which should prove that their bottom six performance of 2014 was only a one-off.
“This is really good I liked it much! Azerbaijan never disappoints me.” – Orestis from Greece
“OMG! It’s wonderful! Again a Top 5 for Azerbaijan this year! Good luck from your friends Hungary!” – Gergő from Hungary
“Another boring ballad…” – Eurovision Italia, Italy.
So, I’ve been seeing generally positive reviews for this song, and I agree with them, but what do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
See you soon,
