Almost all European countries have already chosen their representatives at the Eurovision song contest. According to Russian music reviewer Artur Gasparyan, the Caucasian republics are very interested in the event.

 

"These countries are very successful, especially Azerbaijan. It's developing rapidly. This tendency shows that these countries (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia) are integrating into Europe from this particular point of view," Gasparyan told VK in an interview.

 

"The Eurovision contest is like the Olympic Games, like a musical Olympiad. And the more active Caucasian countries are, the better," he added.
