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.”

We need some Mediterranean spice back in Eurovision.
Since Turkey left the songs from Greece and Azerbaijan have lost their sparkle/fire and that might be because they are no longer competing with Turkey to be the best.
Azerbaijan might pick up their act and stop sending dull ballads if Turkey return.
And Greece might start sending decent songs again.

She has really good voice and i listened her song which loreen was backing vocalist and it was very nice song. As i see she is so exciting and she might be a good opportunity for turkey after 3 years. I hope Turkey will come back.

Didn’t she want to represent Germany in ESC in early 2000 or so?

I think people wanted her to represent in the year 2013. But, of course, we already know what Turkey did back then.

It’d be nice if this meant TRT were actually serious about returning this year (unlike EVERY YEAR since they withdrew where they teased us with a return at least once.)

From youtube videos of her live, she seems okay. Given a good song, which Turkey do generally get, she could do quite well. I wouldn’t mind her participating for them.

Never been impressed by Turkey’s entries, and the song of this Aynur is no exception: it’s kitsch and tasteless (I’m talking about the song embedded in this article, cause I don’t know Aynur nor her other songs). Turkey has seen a rise in popularity in the ESC in the 2000s thanks only to the televoting, allowing the Turkish diaspora to vote for their homeland. Why do you think they kept getting 12 points from France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, etc.; all countries with big Turkish communities? To be honest, I’m not missing Turkey in the contest. They never brought anything… Read more »

Turkey, thanks to the diaspora, the hype of their return and the quality of their entries (not all of them are maNga, but most are good rather than bad) will do well in 2016 so they don’t need Aynur. Germany probably do and that way they’ll get at least 12 points from Turkey 🙂

Just checked YouTube to see if she can hack it live. Apparently she can. Yeah, I’d say she’d be a good choice.

If Turkey are to return, they should do so with a bang! Aynur is the answer. Just as Hadise in 2009, Aynur’s fame and beauty will translate into votes, regardless of the song. Although Hadise had a great song too! Viva la Turkey!
