Azerbaijani broadcaster Ictimai have internally selected their act for this year's Eurovsision Song Contest - 10 year old Rustam Karimov!
Born in Baku, in August 2003, Rustham began singing aged two years old and realised that music was his calling. He arranged family concerts, performing songs from the cartoon films, annd whilst at kindergarden he quickly became all kids' music hero and in the school he was already the top star at all concerts.
In 2011 Rustam began studying piano at the Rashid Beybutov Music School - however his true passions are drums and guitar. This is epitimised by his song for Kyiv, which called Me And My Guitar.
Rustam says that music is in his head almost all the time - no wonder his school report regularly says "singing in class!".
