AZERBAIJAN – Azerbaijani singer announced his stage team for Tel Aviv with an emotional unplugged version of his entry song ‘Truth’. #teamchingiz will join five backing vocalists who are mostly not newcomers to Eurovision. Pernille Leeloo participated in Danish national final Dansk Melodi Grand Prix this year.
Sara Linnea reached Melodifestivalen 2012 final, and Peter Simpson currently is working with Cesar Sampson (Austria, Eurovision 2018). Singers and songwriters Patrik Jean and Cedrik Hammar will also be on stage helping Chingiz to bring to life his song and to share his story of ‘Truth’ toxic love relationship.
“I’m so happy to have these truly talented and extremely professional guys joining me on the stage in Tel Aviv! Together with our musical producer Isa Melikov, brilliant vocal coach Alex Panayi and ‘Truth’ songwriter Borislav Milanov we went through so many singers’ profiles to select ones who will bring their own touch to my song and make it even more colorful for the live performance. Since the first rehearsal it all worked perfectly between us, like a beautiful harmony”, says Chingiz.
Chingiz’s performance will serve as an anticipated closing act to the Eurovision 2019 semi-finals. ‘Truth’ is the 18th and final song of the second semi-final.
