Eurovision 2018: The Reviews – AZERBAIJAN

Featured Video Play Icon

X My Heart (Aisel)

BACKGROUND
“Aysel Mammadova, known professionally as AISEL is an Azerbaijani singer. She attended the Azerbaijan State Conservatory. On 8 November 2017, she was announced as the Azerbaijani representative in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.”

That’s literally all that is on Aisel’s Wikipedia entry so that’s all you’re getting.

Head of wardrobe: “I want everyone in white.”

EUROTRASHTIC LYRICS

Heaven knows we are
Made perfect we are
Tailored by the stars

Just when I wanted to dismiss this as generic pop song you go and throw in something poetically profound. I would make a “tailor to the stars” joke but I’m too busy contemplating my own existence.

REVIEW
This isn’t the best entry this year, and the use of the X in the title confuses the heck out of me, but there’s a lot to like here. What I especially like is the fact that Aisel sings “I’m stronger than cannonballs” but it sounds as though she’s saying “I’m stronger than cannibals”. Girl, I hope you are, because otherwise you’re what’s for dinner.

RATING
B
