When talking about this meeting Farid said, “we’ve been riding Segway’s in Mariinsky park, laughing and talking like we’ve known each other for ages!” says Farid. “With such tight schedules before the Semi Finals, this meeting was a true retreat. Zlata is an amazing girl, solid and talented artist. And her song Gravity sounds like a fairytale.”
Zlata added, "this year Azerbaijan is represented by a genuine fire! Farid is a very passionate person, a singer with a burning heart. Hold Me is a touching ballad that fits to your ear from the first moment. I hope Farid will fully expose his sensitive soul and unbelievable vocal talent to the Eurovision audience!”
