Who are Aysel and Arash?

Arash was actually born in Iran but his parents moved the family to Sweden when he was ten. His singles, Boro Boro (Go Away) and Temptation, made it to the hit lists around Europe, and their respective videos garnered significant airplay on more than twenty MTV outlets across the world. Aysel on the other hand is a rising star but not new to the music world as she started singing already at the age of four! She's won a lot of vocalists' contests and is working hard to get to the top.
"I like this song and I am sure it will do very well in the Final.... " said one commentator about Always. "I really think that if they can perform the song well on the night this could be in the Top 3 and maybe even the winner." said another supporter from Ireland. And they were really right! It did place third with 207 points!
