Teams: All Azerbaijani clubs, Azerbaijan NT; FC Barcelona
Quidam, I totally agree with you. I personally stopped respecting this song contest after the year 2004 in Istanbul, when such a magnificent song from Germany finished just 8th.
Today in order to get high places you either ought to have a strong diaspora or dress your female artist in an outfit which is as short as possible. Nevertheless, we must admit that no other event (except maybe football World Cup) is annually viewed by more than 100 million people from all over the world, therefore Azerbaijan, as a quite unknown country, has no other choice than using this song contest as an advertising method..
