The first country to reveal their dream team participant, as decided by our readers, is Turkey! The Eurasian country has been absent from the contest since 2013 but TRT are expected to bring Turkey back in 2016 – so who do our readers want to see flying the Turkish flag?
There were a lot of names suggested for Turkey, but the main favourite was pop singer Gülşen!
Our readers are clearly missing the ethnic flavour of Turkey’s entries and judging from their choice they want the country to make a strong statement on their return in Sweden! Second in our poll were Hande Yener and 2010 participants maNga. Other popular choices included Ayşe Hatun Önal and Atiye.
The full list of names suggested by our readers by popularity (ties are randomised);
Gülşen, Hande Yener, maNga, Ayşe Hatun Önal, Atiye, Sertab Erener, Athena, Yüzyüzeyken Konuşuruz, Grup Pan, Mustafa Ceceli, Model, Bedük, Mustafa Sandal, Nada, Tarkan, Lea Michele, Sebnem Ferah
So our first Dream Team participant has been chosen! Come back tomorrow when we reveal who you chose for Armenia…
