She is only 17 years old but her spirit is strong and she is committed enough to succeed. Safura is already a winner – for now in the Azerbaijani national selection for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. The participation in Eurovision 2010 is a dream comes true for her. For now it is a main purpose of her life. Safura is used to be an achiever since childhood. So she won’t give up her dream no matter what. The main European stage is waiting for her along with the greatest chance of a lifetime as starting point in her singing career.


Safura’s preparations for Eurovision are at full throttle: she’s got the song, she is getting ready to shoot the ‘Drip Drop’ video, lots of promo activities are taking place, wheels are in motion, things are happening but… WHAT ABOUT THE DRESS?! Help Safura pick a perfect one!



  • Bulls will be bulls!
    Hey you, guys, this week is going to be pretty busy, it’s a little early to talk about this, lets just say, I’ll probably be unable to even lift my hand and type “hello!”, let alone do the blog. With this, I give you my next entry. This is the last chunk of pure unfettered fun before I get back on my schedule, which is tighter then ever right now. Bull riding in Kiev was fun, as you can see, I am not very good at it but falling off of the great plastic beast was surprisingly relaxing. I guess, just knowing that I can’t hurt myself made me feel adventurous and brave. That’s it for now. Back into the grind! Later, all! Love, Safura!
  • Cheers, all!
    Well, JaQuel cast dancers yesterday and it was as yet one of the most enlightening experiences of my life. At some point I just stepped aside and let the guru do his magic. Lesson one: the stretches. Forget the stretches in academic sence, just start dancing right away, let the groove carry you! If you select the right tune the dance will synchronize your body and your soul in seconds, as opposed to a wrong tune which could be painful and exhausting to dance to and you will never be able to get it right, no matter how hard you try. What else? Discipline. From the first glance JaQuel Knight is not much of a soldier… But once he steps out on the floor – watch out. Behind all the joking and kidding and story telling there is a fierce general who is not going to let his troops get away with anything. Then again, he is the coolest, so… I haven’t made up my mind about him yet. Later, all!
    Love, Safura

Hey, me again!
I was supposed to sing at the birthday party. I did sing but something or somebody screwed up my minus track (they call tracks without vocals “minus tracks”) and it didn’t start when it was supposed to. Actually, it didn’t start at all! You could cut the tension with the knife! But I went ahead and sang any way – a capello. It wasn’t a big deal for me but those showbiz types are either too much used to performers lip synching or in their daily life they are deprived of all things fun all together but they just raved. I kid you not, they just flew off the handle like I was reciting Chinese alphabet backwards!
I won’t say it was unpleasant, on the contrary, it tickled my ego in just the right place. I just didn’t expect for this to really be that big a deal. I was just trying to save my face! Oh, well… Talk to you later!
Love, Safura
