In a small survey conducted among popular Azerbaijan artists the Azeri Press Agency found that most did not understand one of the main rules of the contest.
The majority of those surveyed said that they would vote for Azerbaijan which is of course forbidden by the rules laid down by the EBU. APA asked approximately 15 singer for their response to the question "Which country’s representative will Azerbaijani viewers support?". It appears that only one of those asked actually realised that a country competing in the Eurovision Song Contest cannot vote for their own entry.
Among the other entries named by the people surveyed were Turkey and Georgia.
