Nadir Rustamli

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
