Not so long ago, second "Eurovision-2010" Semifinal took place. Sure most of you have been watching, and cheering for our young star Safura Alizadeh, who got the first spot in the Finals.
There however turned out to be a gross mistake concerning Azerbaijan. Here it comes: before every singer begins to perform, a map of the country is being demonstrated. And quess what, Azerbaijan's map was demonstrated without the occupied territories (Nagorno-Karabakh).

There's another one - if, in case with Georgia, the map of the country was being demonstrated for 5 seconds or so, then in our case, Azerbaijani flag appeared and quicky disappeared from the numerous screens. No other countries had any problems with their maps.
