The Azeri broadcaster; Ictimai, has been quite busy preparing to organize the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest but they are still finding the right amount of time to make a good decision in picking their representative for the event which they will ultimately be hosting on their home soil. Many people have somewhat been in disagreement over this method of selection although it has to be noted that it ended up being a successful formula with Azerbaijan recording their first victory on their fourth ever participation thanks to the duet made up of Eldar & Nikki who performed the song 'Running Scared' written by a team of Swedish songwriters.

Following in the footsteps of the duet will be a female performer, the second one for the 'Land of Fire' who goes by the name Sabina Babayeva, who seemed to be the favourted competitor. The evening was somewhat too relaxed noting that the performers only did cover songs due to the fact that the song will be chosen at a later date. Apart from the performances from the hopefuls, there were a number of interval acts including the Turkish representative; Can Bonomo and the Maltese representative; Kurt Calleja who was accompanied by his entourage performing last years' hit song 'Over and Over' as well as his song for the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest 'This Is My Life'.
