#ESC21: Remembering Turkey At Eurovision

Over the course of April and May, on the lead up to the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, we celebrated the countries that participated in this year’s Contest, in Rotterdam. We are now remembering the countries that had previously participated in the Contest – today we remember Turkey.

Turkey debuted at the Contest in 1975, in Stockholm, Sweden. Semiha Yankı finished in nineteenth and last place, with her entry “Seninle Bir Dakika”, scoring 3 points.
