Turkey and the Eurovision Song Contest
Turkey won the Eurovision Song Contest once, back in 2003 with Sertab Erener's Everyway that I can. Just like Sertab, Sibel was selected internally by Turkish public broadcaster TRT.

Sibel Tüzün
Sibel Tüzün was born in Istanbul. In 1990 she took part in the Turkish national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, but didn't came further than a 9th place with Kime ne. She studied at the Istanbul University State Conservatory as well. Her first album Ah biz kizlar, back in 1992, became a big success and many more successes followed.

Süper star
Ay hemen doðmuyorsa, olsun
Gece uzun karanlýk, olursa olsun
Gözlerin kamaþýyor, aldýrma
Aþka hazýr mýsýn

Býrak durmadan aksýn duygun
Gözlerini kapat, sus, yüreðin vursun
Iþýðým aydýnlatsýn geceyi
Aþka hazýr mýsýn

Karþýnda süper star
Sev beni
Karþýnda süper star
Hisset Beni
Yaþa beni
Arzu benim, arzu benim, arzu benim sana

Ay hemen doðmayacak, olsun
Gece uzun karanlýk, olsun
Gözlerin kamaþacak, aldýrma
Aþka hazýr mýsýn
Býrak durmadan aksýn duygun
Gözlerini kapat, yüreðin vursun
Iþýðým aydýnlatsýn
