Azerbaijan’s very own little mermaid, singer Chingiz has already made a splash with his official Eurovision music video, which features an impressive array of strobe lighting and, er, artful underwater shots. If body paint, moody stares and topless beardy men dressed in cargo pants are your thing, you’re (miraculously) in luck.
When he’s not making waves on YouTube with his music video wardrobe choices, Chingiz’s a previous winner of the Azerbaijani version of Pop Idol, and has since taken part in The Voice Ukraine and represented Azerbaijan internationally at New Wave in Jūrmala, Latvia. He was born in Moscow and moved to Qazax, Azerbaijan when he was six.
He’s apparently a big fan of meditation, which might go some way in explaining how he became so adept at holding his breath underwater.
What is Azerbaijan’s Eurovision 2019 song called?
Written and composed by Borislav Milanov and Chingiz himself, Azerbaijan’s entry is called Truth.
