Que alguien me explique si Turkia, se retira de esc por que el voto de jurado vale el cincuenta por ciento y esto, mismo lo hacen en su propio festival, viva la coherencia.

It is strange that some participants represented countries (Turkey, Belarus, Bosnia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan) and other represented regions (Kosovo (although it is recognized as a country by many), Altai Republic, Tatarstan, Northern Cyprus – recognized only by Turkey).

I am sorry to say this, but it looks to me that the competition has a strong political flavor, with regions seemingly representing areas Turkey is hoping to become independent one day. That makes the festival basically a propaganda tool.

A few pals and I reviewed it for fun.. but I think what you have to have to keep in mind is that it’s a baby, in its initial stages and that less stable countries are involved. So, there were LOADS of big hiccoughs :’) Hopefully next year we see better organisation lol! I had perfect streaming oddly enough on TRT & TMB. Overall, I really enjoyed it in an educational way. There were definitely similarities to ESC (the name, postcards, mini flag ceremony), but differences of its own that make it Turkvizyon: No time limit on the songs, mostly… Read more »

If I am to be brutally honest, this “event” is disgraceful and only builds new barricades between East and West. What the heck are countries like Ukraine and Belarus doing there and what sort of event is that with countries that are not even recognized by anybody?

If they want Turkvizyon to be a success, they have got to invest some more money into better graphics and decent online streaming. Also, it seemed to be very disorganized. We didn’t even have a final participation list until the Wednesday before the contest!

A little bit irrelevant, but is Kosovo going to be able to participate next year? Russia doesn’t consider Kosovo an independent country, and they’re the hosts next year. Most people from Kosovo have a Kosovan passport and those aren’t accepted in Russia. I know the contestant from Kosovo in this year’s Miss Universe competition was unable to compete because the Russian government wouldn’t let her enter Russia (which was hosting) because she had a Kosovan passport.
