BTW, as much as I love these photos, the contest sponsor is a dictator's daughter. Last fall a poem that she wrote was used in primary school textbooks. Myself and other Azerbaijan-watchers talked about it on Twitter. Then one of the twitter-ers, an Azerbaijani citizen was thrown in jail. He's out now, but just wanted to add this tidbit to this otherwise nice FPP.

Also of note is how she benefited personally from Eurovision and owns one of the few telecom companies.

Somehow I think the age range has to be below 17 above 16 because no way a 1 year old took these.
