Azerbaijan’s 2011 Eurovision Song Contest representatives, Eldar & Nigar met international superstar group, Blue during the Farewell Party for Ukraine’s representative, Mika Newton, in Kyiv, April 24th. Blue represents the United Kingdom at the competition in May and the two rivals for the Eurovision crown quickly became friends.
Eldar & Nigar chatted with Blue and the six singers become friends during the evening. It became apparent that they had much more in common than their participation at the Eurovision Song Contest in Dusseldorf. Not least that Nigar and Anthony Costa are actually neighbors in North London. Nigar and her husband live in Palmers Green whilst Anthony is in neighboring Barnet.
It also turns out that they are both big fans of the North London football team, Tottenham Hotspur. The evening proved a lot of fun for all three national representatives and they are looking forward to meeting again next week in Germany as rehearsals for the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest gets underway.
