Azerbaijan: Video of Drip drop released

Earlier today, the official video of Drip drop, the Azerbaijani entry for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo, was released. The video features the original and full 3:36 minutes version of the song and not the 3-minutes one which will be sung on the stage in Oslo.

The video was directed by Rupert Wainwright who directed several films as Stigmata, The Fog, Blank Check and The Sadness of Sex, and choreographed by JaQuel Knight who is responsible for the clip of Beyoncé's song Single ladies. He will also make the choreography of Safura on the stage in Oslo.

The video was followed by a preview video, and a TV trailer was released as well. You can watch them along with the official video below.

Safura will sing her song Drip drop at spot number 7 in the second Semifinal on May 27th, hoping to qualify to the final on May 29th and get a good result for her country, Azerbaijan.

An expensive music video means nothing and it doesn't impress me. It looks the same as every other video anyway, a wannabe. It is a SONG contest and the song is just average. However, the song becomes less than average when she murders it with her childish and horrible accent and voice. Worst singer and 0 stage presence. I only see an awkward and gawky looking teenager who has no charisma at all and just do as she is told, rehearse some steps etc. (and not very well). I wish it wouldn't qualify because it just means there will be more countries doing the same in the future. Ruining the good about the song contest and increase this way of thinking; all about money and image, ZERO about talent because that she doesn't have. Terrible "singer".

So which one is Robert Pattinson??? Is he dancing that stupid dance or he is in the back vocal?

Prunus, by the way, what happened to that drag queen, Sabina Mrozinsky, who was also known was Ewa Wegrowaska, who later became an astronaut and then reincarnated into Usher.....I truly became a believer in reincarnation. Now I know which part of horse anatomy that jerk was in his previous life. I am sure he is a result of first cousins marriage. They practice that in Azerbaijan.

Prunus , don't worry I know all that team from Baku's Montino's mental institution: Gaylander, Kenan , Rita Belindarova etc. They are all psychopaths. But i know how to handle toxic people. In case, you have my email. I wish AvatArmenia would also be a little bit reserved and balanced when communicating with them. (plus, i told him to send his letters for proofreading)

Whatever ... ORIGINAL ... [29486]

Further to my previous comment:

It will not be Baku's win,
because this …(copy/paste) song

Honestly, the English rock band Queen performed "Who wants to live forever",
in 1986 (!!!!!!!!!!)
There was also a STRONG voice to that classic song, which is why it actually seems like it has been around… forever ;)
Freddie R.I.P.

Just as there will never be another Michael Jackson. R.I.P.

Life was better years ago,
with a "Been there; done that" feeling
but, lately, that "Let's do it again" thing happening
has become soooooooo b.o.r.i.n.g.

please take note of this link featuring
two true international LEGENDS '

I love it.

Hence, my motto, this year ------> O R I G I N A L I T Y.

@ Aridane Rodriguez

Russia 2008 actually "bought a ESC victory" and THAT had never happened before!!!!

But .... IF Azerbaijan did not manage to pull THAT off last year,
with ARASH (L), a successful star in Europe, who had a great ORIGINAL song

And .... IF people think this is way better, even though it is NOTHING ORIGINAL,
then let them vote for it.


and, for the same reasons,




F L O P, too

On the site they have pool

Finally you get a chance to watch the ‘Drip Drop’ video over and over again, savoring this exquisite spectacle, saving the best for last! So, what do you think?

What dance routine? Waving with the arms????

Gosh! Whats up with the TV-trial? They have even used a voiceover(like it's some kind of Hollywood movie coming up introduced by the legendary late Don Lafontaine, the voice of Hollywood with over 750 000 television spots and 5000 movie trailers). The only thing missing in this tv-trial is his famous phrase "In a world....."
May he rest in peace. :(

And the Oscar goes to.....

Azeri oil has paid a good videoclip and will buy a victory at ESC for Azerbaijan... or did not Russian oil and gas buy Dima Bilan's victory?

The real reason I can not do it is some clowns here. I know that they come only to bash Azerbaijan. They do not care whoever represents it with whatever song. The only reason is bashin bashin and one more time bashing. Even if you will avoit from commenting here, those trolls will do their job and do you want me only to watch what they write??? So I hope you understood me.

Where does she has a hit ? In Azerbajan ? Almost every candidate hat a hit in his/her homecountry... The only one who really had a hit is the German Lena... number 1 in 4 countries... Congrats Germany !

Fri 30 Apr 2010 09:44:48

She just looks fairy, she is gorgeous and she is talented. She has the looks, she has the voice, she has the song. She is a hit already...GO GIRL...
