The Minister said the voting mostly reflected neighborly relations. “Therefore we shouldn’t regret that we couldn’t achieve high results. We were new in this contest. If we view the geography of the countries supported us, we can see that we received more votes from the population of neighboring countries”. Garayev was at loss to answer the question whether Azerbaijani performance deserves the first place or not. “Differing from the sport, there are not concrete indications in the art. Therefore the words “best” and “worst” are not accepted simply in the art. Each song has own glory and essence. In any case, our song was among the successful performances”.
