by Stella Floras 219 views

After participating last year with an ethnic R n' B song in English, Turkey attempts this year with an entirely different choice. Mor ve otesi will be representing Turkey in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest with Deli, a purely rock entry performed entirely in Turkish.

Today, TRT presented the Turkish 2008 Eurovision Song Contest entry. Mor ve otesi will be performing Deli (Crazy) and powerful, rock song entirely in the Turkish language. The band was selected internally by the Turkish broadcaster and submitted three songs for the appointed jury to choose from.


Turkey will be participating in the second Eurovision Song Contest semi final to be held on Thursday 22 May, in Belgrade.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
