Sabina Babayeva's Eurovision story
Sabina Babayeva was the representative of Azerbaijan in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, securing an impressive fourth place in the Final for the home nation just three weeks ago. Sabina has produced a video for her fans, telling the story of her time in the competition.
Sabina had tried every year since 2008 to represent her homeland in Europe's Favourite TV Show since Azerbaijan made their debut in the contest.
Sabina's persistency paid off this year after she was chosen to finally represent her country with the song When The Music Dies. On stage in Baku, Sabina was joined by one of the worlds most famed mugam singers, Alim Qasimov to add a national flavour to the performance.
