TURKEY – The fans and the NGO efforts to bring back Turkey in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest ended again without a result. Speaking to Turkish fans, NTU’s Zurab Alasania said it cleary: “Turkey denied again”. Not a surprise for most of us having in mind what’s going on inside Turkey and the TRT objections to the basic EBU rules. The fans, upset at the moment, plunder the internet with raged posts against TRT urging the broadcaster to at least broadcast the live shows from Kyiv (we hardly doubt they will). At some point TRT might be right about the rules and their unfairness in some points but still we wonder why Turkey doesn’t wanna share its music with Europe? (rhetoric question of course) Have in mind that up to the allocation draw in mid / late January, miracles can happen!
