Did they win when they were on the X Factor?  I watched their performances on youtube and man were they ever off key, and only 17 then.  I liked their audition when one of the judges asked them where they see themselves in 15 years and without missing a beat John replies "Well, I see myself being older."  Very cocky, lol!  Simon hated them.

Here's the audition clip:

Beleive it or not they got WORSE during the auditions! But Louis loving the Irish put them through to the live finals.... and they were eliminated from the competition in week 7, which I think made them about 4th or 5th..

Cos they had done a cover of this they then released this with Vanilla ice!!

French Guiana. Belongs to France and thus to the EU. They even have the Euro.

I didn't even know that Azerbaijan was in Europe.  Congrats anyway!

You're in good company, Paul.

Most of us didn't.


I didn't know it either. And for a good reason, because it doesn't.

Azerbaijan doesn't belong to Europe, geographically. It belongs to (Western) Asia.
Yet the ESC has always had wide definitions of what country is allowed into the contest. Israel has always been in the contest, and Israel is by no means in Europe when you look at a map. Turkey has only a very small part of its land in Europe and the biggest part in Asia.

The Caucasian countries belong geographically to Asia. Politically and culturally they are often counted as European though. (The last part was new for me, too. I looked it up).

At school I once had to copy a map of South America by hand. All borders/countries, capitols and main rivers and mountain ranges. After that I knew all of it by heart, and to this day remember most of it. It was one of the few drawing projects I was proud of. No wonder, I only had to copy, not draw myself. :laugh: Can't draw worth a damn.
