Nadir has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame in his native Azerbaijan.

It’s been quite a year for the singer from Salyan, as his Eurovision participation was confirmed just 3 weeks after winning The Voice of Azerbaijan, where he stormed to victory with more than 40% of the audience’s votes in the grand final.

During the series, the champ’s mentor was Eldar Gasimov, who is best known (outside of his country) for winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011, with Running Scared, a duet with Nikki. Nadir admits that Eurovision was on his mind when he picked Eldar, as representing his country on stage has been a lifelong ambition.

That dream began as a child. Nadir took piano lessons for 7 years, studied in music school and, while at university, joined a band in which he performed lead vocals and served as the group’s artistic director, getting to indulge his creative side even further.

Lyrics of Fade To Black

Stay The story barely started Can’t you Stay Do you really want no part of this? One so sweet Reverie You back off slowly through the door You always go and blame the weather The weather It hurts so fast When love goes bad Until at last We fade to black And I’m numb, numb Numb, numb Wait I need some time to fix this, can’t you wait? We can’t afford to miss this You back off slowly through the door You always go and blame the weather The weather It hurts so fast When love goes bad Until at last We fade to black And I’m numb, numb Numb, numb We’re living in a memory The present is the price I pay Fade to black We fade to black We’re living in a memory The present is the price I pay It hurts so fast When love goes bad Until at last We fade to black
