Turkish-German pop star Aynur Aydin is always at the centre of Turkish Eurovision rumours. It’s no wonder why: She’s got a fierce voice, a bangin’ body and major international credentials. Born and raised in Germany to Turkish parents, she recorded her album “12 Cesit La La” (12 Ways to La La) at Sweden’s famous Cosmos Studio. Eurovision fans know she has what it takes to take Turkey — should it return to Eurovision — back to the top.
During Aynur’s recent appearance on TRT Radio, popular radio DJ Michael Kuyucu asked her about the incessant euro-chatter. “I don’t always talk about Eurovision,” she said. “I don’t say, ‘Choose me as the representative.’ The fans do. Of course I want to represent my country and I have dreamed about it. I have already thought about the song and I have serious projects for this. But first we should participate then we will talk about this. From Sweden to Germany, so many fans want me to represent Turkey, that’s why I want to be on that stage.”
Aynur already has a Eurovision connection. Loreen, who won the contest in 2012, was a backing vocalist on Aynur’s album. Aynur, who wanted to represent Turkey previously, once said that “it would be a great moment if I take the trophy from my good friend’s hands in Sweden.”
