Nigar Jamal and Eldar Gasimov from Azerbaijan sing their winning song “Running Scared” in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Duesseldorf, Germany on this Saturday.

Nigar Jamal and Eldar Gasimov, who know by the surname Ell/Nikki. They have won 220 points for their classic pop ballad with a memorable end. The second place taken by Italy and Sweden finished in the third place.

Eldar Gasimov was given the trophy by Germany’s Lena Meyer-Landruth, who had made history by defending her title for two consecutive seasons in a row. She completed 10th with the sticky taken by a guest.

Azerbaijan had been among the entries favoured to come first into the contest. But, the other favourites that including the much hyped Irish duo Jedward and the British bookies top pick, French tone Amaury Vassili had splashed.

More than 120 million audiences around the globe tune into watch the Eurovision show that has been taken place every season since 1951.

Viewers in the 43 countries had taken part cast votes by SMS, which add up for 50 per cent of the rival final score. The other 50 per cent had been resulted by panels of judges selected by each country.

Two rounds of semi-finals held earlier in the week, shaped the participant down to the 25 finalists who took to the stage on Saturday for an excessive sound-and-light display.

Finally, a mother of two and an international relations student from Azerbaijan have beaten the Irish twins to secure their country’s first-ever victory in the Eurovision Song Contest.

The next season’s Eurovision Song fest will be hosted in Baku.
