The duo are twins, Tural and Turan Bağmanovlar, who are competing under the TuralTuranX.

It is the first time that Azerbaijan's Eurovision entry has been written by an Azeri team since their debut entry in 2008 'Day After Day' by Elnur and Samir.

TuralTuranX were internal selected to compete at Eurovision 2023 out of a previous announced shortlist of artists which included Azer Nasibov, Humay Aslanova & Amrah Musayev, Leyla Izzatova and Mamagama. A focus group group then made the final selection.

TuralTuranX will perform in the second half of the Eurovision 2023 semi-final 1 on May 9 in Liverpool.

Azerbaijan made their Eurovision debut in 2008 and every competed every year since.
