On International Women’s Day, who better to name as your Eurovision representative than … a bloke? Chingiz Mustafayev will sing for Azerbaijan in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest singing ‘Truth’.
He was picked from a shortlist of four by broadcaster iTV as their next representative. The song naturally enough comes from a Bulgarian-Austrian songwriter – Borislav Milanov.
In 2007 aged 16 Chingiz won ‘Yeni Ulduz’, a TV talent show. Other participants – Safura and Aysel – have gone on to represent Azerbaijan at Eurovision.
