Safura Alizade, Azerbaijan's Eurovision contestant in 2010, performs her single "Drip Drop" at the opening ceremony of the International Wrestling Final Golden Grand Prix at the Heydar Aliyev Concert Complex in Baku, Azerbaijan on July 16, 2010.  One goal of the current President Ilham Aliyev is to win Eurovision investing huge amounts of Azerbaijan's vast oil wealth in the effort, which some estimate at $20 million, and would result in hosting the European pop song contest in the Azeri capital Baku in an effort to show off the country's European qualities; the annual song contest is set for May 14, 2011 in Dusseldorf, Germany, host nation after last year's victory with Lena performing "Satellite" in Oslo, Norway.
