Eurovision 2015 – Rumours have surfaced today that Turkey may be set to return in 2015. Turkish news site CADDE reported that EBU President Jean-Paul Philippot and TRT General Director Ibrahim Sahin have agreed a way forward for Turkey to return to the Contest.
The EBU had tried hard to persuade Turkey to return this year, changing the rules to allow them to participate despite not broadcasting the show last year.
Turkey has objected to the Big 5 automatic qualification and the recent jury voting rules.
Although there was some wariness in believing the story today, Eurovision event supervisor Sietse Bakker has just tweeted the following, fuelling the idea that not only will Turkey be back but there may be some other changes…
Do you think there will be a big shake up of the rules in order to bring Turkey back into the Eurovision fold? Will the Big 5 go? Will Turkey make it the big 6?
