Azeri duo scared by fire

The first press conference from the delegation of Azerbaijan was one of the most well-attended this far. The nerves have fell the duo when they met the positive response on the song and the professional production. The performers has spent much of the preparations for the show in Sweden, Arash's home country, from where much of the team baking the entry up have been collected.

But despite the preparations, the fire used in the performance took Arash and AySel by surprise. The expensive pyrotechnics are only being used once in the rehearsal, which is why the singers forgot it.

“We knew that the fire would come, but we forgot about it,” AySel says. “When it came I was so afraid that my hair would burn that I jumped to the sky and down!”
