Official Eurovision website eurovision.tv reveals today that the Turkish broadcaster TRT will make public the name of their 2011 representative in January. It seems that the country sticks to the same format that brought them success in the last years.

The Turkish broadcaster is said to choose their representative internally once again.This year, Turkey grabbed the second place in Eurovision with the group MaNga, using the same selection format. The candidate will then present three songs to an internal commitee, which will make a final decision.

The nomination is expected to take place some time in January. As usual, several names have been tipped as TRT's choice for next year. Rumours have focused especially on Atiye Deniz, whose name hasbeen mentioned as Turkish representativeon the Azerbaijani broadcaster's website;and Tarkan, fan favourite every year.
