Eurovision 2011 - Winner?

Yes the Eurovision may be the musical  equivalent of the Apprentice or America's Next Top Model when it comes to the range of talent, but this year there is one remarkably good entry.

It is from Eldar and Nigar, who are representing Azerbaijan. The song is a wonderfully refreshing pop ballad with a great video, and no Eurovision cheese that has become so sickeningly cliche. IMO this song is a return to what the Eurovision should be about, great music by young, talented artists.

 Unfortunately these competitions always encompass an laudable amount of geopolitical tactical voting and there's little reason to believe this year will be different. However politics aside, they've definitely got my vote!
