The moderator of the festival, presenting Leyla Aliyeva, while walking the red carpet, as the muse of the festival, said she was surprised at so much positive emotions she had.
Leyla Aliyeva said: “I feel very happy. I feel more joyful when I am together with you. I suppose you have been doing your job ideally. Yesterday was very beautiful. I am sure, we’re going to see today the same high level. I wish nice evening and sound health to all. Thank you.”
Answering the questions of correspondents after walking the red carpet, Leyla Aliyeva said that she had very rich and nice impressions of the festival. What is most important is that everybody is happy and joyful here. Look, so many guests are there, all of them are charmed with the beauty of Baku city. I want to listen to all performers. It is so satisfying to see all dancing.
People’s Artist of Azerbaijan Emin Aghalarov said jubilees of Leonid Agutin, Vladimir Presnyakov and Valeriya would be celebrated this evening.
Walking the red carpet, performers shared their impressions of the Baku festival, talking about novelties in their creativity.
