    Well clearly the first is correct, as it's how we Brits say it. But as it's an American lady saying the word, I'm confused.

    It's derived from the French "azur" (think of La Côte d'Azur), and as the first is close to the French while the second nothing like it, on grounds of etymology I think the first has to be judged correct.

    And that spelled-out pronunciation made me think of King Ahasuerus, whose name has a pronunciation variant of azure right in the middle of it. :D
