Can Bonomo at Eurovision
TRT, the Turkish national broadcaster announced in January 2012 that the young singer Can Bonomo was all set to represent them at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in neighboring country Azerbaijan.
Can Bonomo presented his pop rock Eurovision entry Love me back one month later, through a special televised show. The song quickly became a hit in his native country, as it managed to reach No. 2 in the Turkish charts.
At the contest, he participated in the second semi-final evening and qualified to the final, where he earned a respectable 7th place with 115 points. However, this marked Turkey’s last Eurovision appearance, as the country withdrew in 2013 and has not returned since.
