Azerbaijan is a country in Eurasia, bordering Armenia, Georgia and Iran.


Azerbaijan won the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest with representatives Eldar Gasimov and Nigar Jamal (known as Ell and Nikki) with their song "Running Scared". After that, they won the right to host the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest.

Azerbaijan had always qualified for the Eurovision Song Contest grand final from the semifinals prior to 2018, when Aisel and her entry "X My Heart" failed to qualify.


Football isn't a popular sport, as the Azerbaijan national football team doesn't share success as their participation in the Eurovision Song Contest.
