In the World News Bulletin program of TRT, it was said that the chances of Turkey returning to the contest are much higher than in years past.
It has already been heavily rumored that they will join the 60th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Another interesting note is that this would be the 40th contest of Turkey in Eurovision!
Also, news has come from TRT employees that TRT wants to take its place in next year’s contest. Also, this year Jean-Paul Philippot , President of the EBU, visited Turkey and had a conversation with İbrahim Şahin, Head of TRT, about Turkey’s participation.
TRT Music revealed, “We focused on Türkvizyon. We haven’t participated in Eurovision Song Contest in two years. Last February, the Head of Eurovision, Sietse Baker visited us and talked about Turkey’s injustice and apologized for it. We don’t know what TRT’s head will do, but we already started to make our list of representatives for next year’s contest. The chances of Turkey returning to the contest are much higher than in years past.”
