UNITED KINGDOM SHORTLISTED HOST CITIES 2023: Birmingham / Glasgow / Leeds / Liverpool / Manchester / Newcastle / Sheffield

Chingiz

Chingiz will represent Azerbaijan at the Eurovision Song Contest this year. He was born in Moscow and moved to Qazax in Azerbaijan, a city of just 20,000 people, when he was 6 years old. He learned to play the guitar and started composing his own songs while still a young boy.

At the age of 13, Chingiz moved with his mother and his brother to Baku, where eventually he was invited to audition for the Azerbaijani version of Pop Idol. Chingiz won the competition thanks to tremendous support from the jury and viewers of the show. His victory turned him into a rising star in the Azerbaijani music industry and by 2013, he was already representing the country internationally at the New Wave festival in Jūrmala, Latvia. Three years later, he took part in The Voice Ukraine.

Chingiz loves the company of his dog, kung fu and yoga. He always enjoys getting a breath of fresh air while backpacking or doing outdoor meditation.

Lyrics of Truth

I'm in the mirror
So freaking bitter
But I've gotta get through
I'm gonna get through

Keep it together
Be cool under pressure
Cause she wants to break you
She wants to break you

Drink till I forget
She's on to the next
And when the ghost starts screaming
Right when they resonate
Hear my heart confess

It's been so hard to bear
So shut up about it
shut up about it
It's just to hard to hear
So shut up about it
shut up about it

Oooooo

So shut up
shut up about it

Out of the mirror
It's getting clearer
Then out of the blue
She crashes the room

Gotta remember
She is a killer
With that freaking perfume
Girl, it's too soon

It's been so hard to bear
So shut up about it
shut up about it
It's just to hard to hear
So shut up about it
shut up about it

Oooooo

So shut up
shut up about it

Oooooo

So shut up
shut up about it

I don’t need I don’t need the truth
I don’t need I don’t need the truth

It's been so hard to bear
So shut up about it
shut up about it
It's just to hard to hear
So shut up about it
shut up about it

Oooooo

So shut up
shut up about it

Oooooo

So shut up
shut up about it
