Hot off the heels of them announcing their participation yesterday, it’s time for an Azerbaijan trivia quiz, the only Caucasian country to have won the contest so far.
With some weeks before we begin looking forward to Eurovision 2019, it’s that time in a Eurovision fan’s year to reflect on past years and all the good music and events they brought. And, also, some trivia.
So You Think You Know… is a new series that will arrive each Wednesday, each time focusing on a new active Eurovision country. We are continuing alphabetically. Belarus will be next.
