Tonight, a special show will be aired on the Turkish National Broadcaster, TRT, where 10 Turkish Eurovision Song Contest entries will be performed by young contestants from the Genç Mikrofon Contest. It’s rumoured that the winning group will be representing Turkey at Junior Eurovision Song Contest next year with Turkey’s possible representation.
The show will start at 18.50 at Central Europe Time and will be shown on TRT1 and TRT-AVAZ. The performers will be the contestants of the Genç Mikrofon Yarışması (Young Microphone Contest) who joined the contest from high-schools in several cities of Turkey. They will also continue their survival in the contest with their performance tonight.
After the declaration from TRT about wanting to take part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, rumours say that the winner of this Genç Mikrofon Yarışması will represent Turkey in this Contest too.
Hakan Yilmaz will be the main host tonight’s show and Figen Civan will appear from the green room with her interviews. The treble jury will be Bülent Forta (president of MÜYAP), Nev (songwriter and singer) and Melis Danışmend (journalist).
