We’re looking forward to a lot of things in 2015. Unfortunately, Turkey at Eurovision won’t be one of them. As we reported back in September, they will not be present in Vienna. However, there may be a glimmer of hope regarding future contests.
Gökhan, our Turkish correspondent, translates:
Senol Goka: From next season, Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches will be on TRT.
KeremMusic: What about Eurovision?
Senol Goka: If everything will be okay, we can come back next year.
Of course, we can’t take the tweet as a binding commitment to a Turkish return, but it looks very promising. Turkey last participated in Eurovision 2012. TRT launched their own Türkvizyon song contest in 2013. Turkey finished last in the Grand Final of the 2014 edition.
Thanks to wiwibloggs reader KeremMusic for pestering the TRT General Manager, and bringing his response to our attention.
