Emin Agalarov is to make a special live performance during the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 on May 26th. Saffron Music and EMI have confirmed.
Born in Azerbaijan Emin is a star in both his home country and Russia, and a rising star in Britain where his second album, After The Thunder, will be released in May.
“It is probably the single biggest opportunity to be able to perform as a guest during the Eurovision in the country which is your home country, how often does that happen? Once in a lifetime and it’s great,” said the singer on Wednesday.
“Every time you perform for a big crowd it is very exciting, if you perform in your home country it is twice as exciting and if there are also hundreds of millions of people watching then it is just unbelievable. I think I don’t even understand what it will feel like but I am very excited”
