Exclusive / Gallery / Video: Elnur visits ANT1 TV & Hello Magazine

ATHENS, GREECE – The second day of the Azeri promo tour in Greece darted very early. After a quick coffee at the hotel lobby we all headed to Antenna TV where Yorgos Liagkas and Fay Skorda, hosts of the top morning show on Greek TV, “Proino Mou”, presented the 2015 entrant of Azerbaijan to the people noticing that as Maria Elena Kyriakou from Greece, he is also the winner of The Voice of Turkey show.
After his performance in the studio, Elnur and the rest of the team followed the delegation back to the hotel after a short lunch in the city centre. Then Elnur gave interview to Hello Magazine and STAR Channel followed by a photo shoot for the weekly magazine.
Short rest and then an exciting visit (quick one though) at the Acropolis Museum where we had short coffee break at the museum terrace while enjoying the view of the Parthenon. The day ended with wonderful dinner in the very centre of Athens with a marvellous view (again) of the historic rock where democracy was instated and ended without sadness as we all gonna meet in few weeks in Vienna.
I have to admit that back in 2008 my impression about Elnur was that he is a snobbish diva. I had he chance to really spent quality time with him and get to know lots of aspects of his personality which unfortunately the Eurovision Song Contest broadcast will not be able to show. I don’t want to comment if his entry is good or bad, or whether Azerbaijan will go well in the semifinal (and in the final, if they qualify) but I want to say that the only reason Elnur loves music is because it’s the perfect way for him to express himself.
