Today Milliyet Gazetesi reports that the Turkish entry to the Eurovision Song Contest was selected several days ago. Listeners have described the entry as being uptempo, with Turkish instruments and rhythms.
Last month, TRT announced they selected newcomer to the local music scene Can Bonomo. After three entries were prepared for TRT, a song has been selected for the artist. The entry is decribed as being a pop-rock ethnic mix, which Eurovision has not heard before. Additionally, the English lyrics are combined with a catchy melody which has been compared to the power of maNga’s entry to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2010 and as melodic as Sertab Erener’s winner of 2003.
The song will be released to the public after the videoclip of the entry has been complete, with the premiere scheduled to take place soon after on TRT news. Additionally, it has been revealed that Can is planning to be on stage in Baku with female dancers to present his song to Europe.
Can Bonomo will be a guest in Azerbaijan’s National Final this coming Sunday, February 12th.
