THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK WITH TÜRKVIZYON

Turkey did it! After refusing to take part to Eurovision Song Contest in 2013, and most certainly in 2014, TRT has lauched it’s very own contest, Türk Vizyon.

Today, Azerbaijani duet and Eurovision 2011 winners Nigar & Eldar officialy launched the new concept. Up to 20 countries and regions who share a common Turkic culture will participate in this brand new contest.

The show has no connection with EBU or the Eurovision Song Contest but presents several similarities (song contest, two semi-finals, not to mention the name or the fonts of the logo).

The very first edition of Türk Vizyon will take place on December 19, 21 and 23 in the 2013 Turkic world capital of culture, Eskişehir.
