Baku, Azerbaijan -

Ever since 2008, which was the first time Azerbaijan took part in the Eurovision Song Contest, Sabina Babayeva has been trying to win the ticket to represent her country in Europe's Favourite TV Show. This year, she achieved her dream and talked to after a concert at the Baku Jazz lub.

A concert with old friends

Sabina was hostess and the main act at the concert, although she invited other guests who also performed. They were Anri Jokhadze of Georgia, Kurt Calleja of Malta and Željko Joksimović of Serbia. Sabina, Anri and Željko have actually known each other for over 10 years, having first met at a festival in which they all participated.

Sabina impressed the crowd with her immaculate vocal range and performed a number of songs. After the concert ended, she spoke with and told us amongst other things, what she recalls when Azerbaijan won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011.
