Samir Javadzadeh (Azeri: Samir Cavadzadə, pron. [sɑˈmir dʒɑvɑdzɑˈdæ]; born 16 April 1980, Baku, Azerbaijan) is an Azerbaijani pop singer. He was selected as the Azerbaijani representative (along with Elnur Hüseynov) to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008.

Samir Javadzadeh graduated from university with a degree in business in 2002. In 2003, he finished five-year courses in music, specializing in Mugham. After serving in the army for a year, he became a member of the pop band Sheron for the next three years and eventually started pursuing solo career.[1] He shortly dated singer Röya.[2]

Originally, Samir Javadzadeh was not named among those who competed to represent Azerbaijan at Eurovision.[3] On 2 February 2008, the jury chose Elnur Hüseynov over two other candidates (Aynur Isgandarli and the rock band Unformal), and it was then revealed that the winning song Day After Day would be performed as a duet by Hüseynov and Javadzadeh.[4] In an interview following the decision, one of the coordinators of the contest (and author of the lyrics of Day After Day) Zahra Badalbeyli stated that it was not contrary to the contest rules for Elnur Hüseynov to invite another performer or more to sing with him, and that it was his and Javadzadeh's mutual agreement to perform Day After Day in a duet.

Elnur Hüseynov (born on March 3, 1987 in Aşgabat, Turkmenistan) is an Azerbaijani pop singer. He was selected as Azerbaijan's representative to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008.

Hüseynov was born in Aşgabat, Turkmenistan, to ethnic Azeri parents. His father was a military serviceman and his mother specializes in music theory. At age 5, Elnur was admitted to a music school for gifted children where he was trained as a piano player. In 1999, the family moved to Baku, Azerbaijan, where Elnur studied at a medical school and graduated with a degree in dentistry. In 2004 he graduated from the Asaf Zeynally College of Music and took up some hairstylist courses. He worked shortly at the Azerbaijan State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre and with the choir group of the Azerbaijan State Philharmonic Society, in addition to singing in a church choir.[1]

In 2003 he received first prize in the musical competition Sing Your Song aired on Azerbaijan's Lider TV. In 2008 he and Samir Javadzadeh were selected to represent Azerbaijan at the Eurovision marking the country's debut in this song contest. They were placed eighth in the finals.Elnur&Samir 180px-ESC_2008_-_Azerbaijan_-_Samir_Javadzadeh%2C_1st_semifinalElnur&Samir 180px-ESC_2008_-_Azerbaijan_-_Elnur%2C_1st_semifinal
