Aisel (Aysel Mammadova), 29

Azerbaijan picked Aysel Mammadova, better known as Aisel, to be their reprecentative at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2018. Because of this she performed the song “X My Heart” on the stage in Lisbon, Portugal. Her song was the opening act of the first semi final. Unfortunately for her and her country, she did not advance to the final with the new rules. If however, the old voting system had slitt been in place, she would have finished 9th in the semi final and qualified for the grand final. Here you can find the members of the escXtra team’s thoughts on her song, from a few weeks before the contest! Outside the Euroverse, Aisel is a respected jazz singer. If you want to hear what she does when she doesn’t do Eurovision, check out this live session video!

We all here at escXtra would like to wish her the very best on her special day!
