Turkey's entrant to the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest, Gülseren, has just finished her first rehearsals on the Palats Sportu's stage with Rimi Rimi Ley.
Gülseren's stage act is quite the same as seen in her preview video: its an act of big drums as well as drbuka drums. As in many past Eurovision Song Contest's, this year's Turkish act will receive a red and yellow lighting, but the video pillars beneath the stage will be off. Her performance went very well, and her performances received loud applause in the venue.
Later on, Gülseren explained her passion for percussions, in her press conference. 'I love percussions ever since I was a little child, cause drums sound a lot like a heart beat' said Gülseren. The Turkish entrant also performed songs in Spanish, French and Armenian in her press conference as well a popular Turkish folk song.
'Although I have been living in France for the last 20 years, I am very proud singing for Turkey, my country' said Gülseren, and pleased the many Turkish fans and journalists.
