The broadcaster responsible for the Azerbaijani representative in the Eurovision Song Contest, iTV have opened up their submission process for a song.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 will take place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands after Duncan Laurence won with the song “Arcade” ending their 44 year wait for a win.
A tale of two processes.

So the submission process for the songs is for the song alone. The process in choosing the singer is a separate process that will be conducted by iTV themselves. So the song and the singer will be matched up at a later date.
iTV have said that composers and musicians must submit two files to the delegation and that being the lyrics and an mp3 file for the song to [email protected]
