Before Eurovision

Milli Seçim Turu 2011

Milli Seçim Turu 2011 was the national final organised by İctimai Television (İTV) that selected Azerbaijan's entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2011. The competition commenced on 15 November 2010 and concluded with a winning artist on 11 February 2011.

Format

The format of the competition consisted of nine shows: seven weekly heats, each held across five days between 15 November and 31 December 2010, a semi-final held across five days between 10 and 14 January 2011 and the final on 11 February 2011. During the heats and the semi-final, each contestant performed a foreign song on Monday, an Azerbaijani song on Tuesday, a former Eurovision song on Wednesday and a song of their choice on Thursday. The contestants that proceeded in the competition were announced on Friday.[2]

The results of the heats and the semi-final were determined by the 50/50 combination of votes from a jury panel and a public vote through telephone and SMS voting. The winning contestant of each heat proceeded to the semi-final, while the jury had the right to select contestants out of the remaining non-qualifying contestants from both semi-finals to proceeded to the semi-final. In the semi-final, the top four contestants proceeded to the final. In the final, a jury vote exclusively determined the winner from the remaining four contestants. The heats and the semi-final took place at the İTV studios in Baku, hosted by Husniye Maharramova and Leyla Aliyeva, while the final took place at the Akhundov Azerbaijan State Academic Opera & Ballet Theater in Baku and hosted by Leyla Aliyeva.

Competing artists

İTV called for interested artists to apply for the competition starting from 6 October 2010. Eligible artists were those that were citizens of Azerbaijan or part of the Azerbaijani diaspora, and must stand out for their "beautiful voice, dance ability and stage culture".[3] 120 applications were received and 77 contestants were selected for the competition.[4][5] Among the selected contestants was Ilgara Kazimova, daughter of the renowned Azerbaijani pop singer Aygun Kazimova.[6]

The first heat took place between 15 and 19 November 2010 and featured ten contestants. Tarik Yigit only participated in the first day of the first heat and therefore was disqualified. Chingiz Mustafayev was selected to proceed to the semi-final.

Song selection

Songwriters of any nationality were able to submit their entries to the broadcaster between 11 January 2011 and 10 February 2011.[13] 21 submissions were received from local and international songwriters as of 25 January 2011, and the song "Running Scared", written by Stefan Örn, Sandra Bjurman and Iain Farquharson, was selected based on the decision of a national jury panel.[14]

At Eurovision

Azerbaijan competed under number 18 in the second half of the first semi-final of the contest, on 10 May, and qualified for the final. They went on to win it with 221 points.[15] A later review of the split voting showed that the juries placed Azerbaijan second (behind Italy), but that the televoting carried the song through to first.[16]

With their entry only receiving 5.14 points per country, Azerbaijan holds the record of the lowest average score for a winning song under the previous voting system (in place from 1975 to 2015). Since the introduction of semi-finals and of the split jury-televoting system, they are also the third winner not to achieve first place in their semi-final (which was won by Greece), and not winning according to the juries' ranking (which placed Italy first).

Split results

  • In the Semi-final 1 Azerbaijan came 2nd with 122 points: the public awarded Azerbaijan 2nd place with 124 points and the jury awarded also 2nd place with 109 points.
  • In the Final Azerbaijan came 1st with 221 points: the public awarded Azerbaijan 1st place with 223 points and the jury awarded 2nd place with 182 points.
