Dupa ce in semifinale s-au prezentat in postura de artisti solo, Azerbadjanul a decis sa ii trimita la Dusseldorf pe Ell si Nikki ca duet, cu piesa “Running scared”.
Ambii sunt la inceput de drum, ambii detin o doza de candoare si sensibilitate si s-a dovedit faptul ca vocile lor se pot imbina armonios. Acum cei doi spera sa faca o figura frumoasa la Eurovisionul din acest an si sa obtina cat mai multe voturi din partea voastra.
Am reusit sa luam celor doi un interviu in exclusivitate pentru Star Gossip si iata ce am aflat:

First tell us how you get with each other lately, knowing the fact that at the beginning you were competing against each other in the national final for Azerbaijan?

Nikki: Everything is great! We are blessed to work with each other and I’m grateful every day for this destiny decision.
Ell: I can’t even try to imagine now any other possible work out in this situation, if it wouldn’t for Nikki, I would never get such amazing partner with great vocals and unbelievable talent. I love to work with her.

Azerbaijan has sent in the last years powerful songs in the Eurovision final. Do you believe that your song has the same strength as the former competitors?

Nikki: Our song Running Scared is very different from everything Azerbaijan did for a last couple of years. It’s brand new, greatly written airy ballad, it’s a story of true romantic love, of feelings so deep that it’s hard to breath.
Ell: And we are living every part of our song every time we sing it. I hope that Europe will fall in love with it as we did for ourselves.

Why did you last so much in launching “Running scared”, in comparison with the other countries and why have you decided to launch it once with your video?

Ell: It’s our postcard video, music videohas has been launched this month. I think, we tried to do the best with arrangements, with vocals in our song and as soon as we were ready we gave the song to public.
Nikki: I’m glad that we had put so much work in it, and now we sure that it is great job and amazing song.

Have you listened to the other countries’ songs? Which in your opinion has the most chances of winning this year’s Eurovision, except of your song?

Ell: It’s too early to predict but we think that this year’s competition is very strong, a lot of great material will be performed on stage in May and we can’t wait to listen to all of them.

Will you continue this musical collaboration after the moment Dusseldorf 2011?

Nikki: Who knows? I think that it’s possible but let’s wait and see.

Tell us what do you know about Romania by far? Would you like to come for a concert here?

Nikki: We would love too. I know that this is country with great music traditions and very powerful cultural traditions.
Ell: I like to explore new countries and it could be very interesting experience for me.

How may the persons Elli & Nikki present themselves behind the cameras?

Ell: We’ve got great team but I can’t even start to count ‘cause we not just duo, we are representing the whole country so the whole Land of Fire is behind cameras with us.

Share a message for all our readers and your Romanian admirers!

Ell: Thanks for all your support! It’s great to know that is Romania interested in us!
Nikki: We wish all the best to all Romanian people! Thank you for all your attention!

Iata si traducerea in romana a interviului:

Mai intai spuneti-ne cum va intelegeti unul cu celalalt, stiind faptul ca la inceput ati concurat unul impotriva altuia in finala nationala a Azerbadjanului?

Nikki: Totul este minunat! Ne simtim fericiti sa lucram unul cu celalalt si sunt recunoscatoare in fiecare zi pentru sansa pe care ne-a oferit-o destinul.
Ell: Acum nu mi-as putea imagina o alta modalitate a acestei situatii, daca nu ar fi fost Nikki. Nu as fi avut niciodata un partener de scena atat de minunat cu un asemenea talent si capacitati vocale. Ador sa lucrez cu ea.

Azerbadjan-ul a trimis in ultimii ani piese puternice in finala nationala a Eurovisionului. Credeti ca piesa voastra este la fel de puternica precum cele ale concurentilor din trecut?

Nikki: Piesa noastra, “Running scared” este diferita fata de tot ceea ce a trimis Azerbadjanul in ultimii ani. Este o balada fresh, cu o compozitie bine realizata, este o poveste despre iubirea adevarata, a unor sentimente atat de puternice incat de abia respiri.
Ell: Si traim fiecare parte a piesei de fiecare data cand o cantam. Sper ca Europa sa se indragosteasca de aceasta piesa asa cum am facut-o si noi.

De ce ati intarziat atat de mult in a lansa piesa “Running scared” in comparatie cu celelalte tari, si de ce ati decis sa o lansati impreuna cu videoclipul sau?

Ell: Este videoclipul nostru de prezentare, videoclipul oficial a fost lansat luna aceasta. Am incercat sa dam ce e mai bun din noi in privinta orchestratiei, partilor vocale din piesa si de indata ce am fost gata cu totul am lansat-o.
Nikki: Sunt bucuroasa ca am muncit atat de mult la aceasta piesa si acum suntem siguri ca am facut un lucru extraordinar cu o piesa minunata.

Ati ascultat piesele celorlalte tari? Care credeti ca are cele mai multe sanse de a castiga Eurovisionul din acest an?

Ell: Este foarte greu de prezis insa credem ca in acest an competitia este una foarte stransa, multe piese bune se vor canta pe scena de la Dusseldorf in mai si abia asteptam sa le ascultam pe toate live.

Veti continua colaborarea voastra muzicala dupa momentul Dusseldorf 2011?

Nikki: Cine stie? Cred ca e posibil, insa vom trai si vom vedea.

Spuneti-ne ce stiti despre Romania pana acum? V-ar placea sa concertati aici?

Nikki: Desigur. Stiu ca Romania este o tara cu o bogata traditie muzicala si cu o traditie culturala foarte importanta.
Ell: Imi place sa explorez noi tari si sa vin in Romania ar fi o experienta foarte interesanta pentru mine.

Cum se prezinta persoanele Ell & Nikki in spatele camerelor?

Ell: Suntem o echipa grozava, insa nu suntem doar un duet, ci reprezentam o natiune intreaga astfel ca Tara de Foc este in spatele camerelor, alaturi de noi.

Lasati-ne un mesaj pentru toti cititorii nostri si admiratorii vostri din Romania

Ell: Multumim pentru sprijinul vostru! Ne bucuram sa stim ca Romania este interesata de noi!
Nikki: Le dorim numai bine romanilor! Multumim pentru aprecierea voastra!
