Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 23 / Trend A. Mammadova /
Turkish participant at "Eurovision-2012" song contest Can Bonomo hopes that this contest will give him a lot of friends and experience.
"I have never been to Baku yet," he told Trend. "That's why I am doubly excited. I'm looking forward to see its rich culture and meet some new friends."
Semifinal rounds of the contest will be held in Baku on May 22 and May 24, Final will be held on May 26.
TRT's decision was a surprise for me, too. Maybe they wanted something different than Turkish POP music this year, something alternative. However, the list of Turkey's representatives included Hande Yener, Atiye, Murat Boz.
It's too soon to think about choreography or the stage performance for now. We are still focusing on the song that we are going to present. We all have ideas in our minds but it will be fully shaped after the song is finished, he said.
"Our song will have our ethnic instruments, a healthy dosage of POP and a good beat to make people dance," he said.
The honor and pride of being selected to represent my country is good enough.
"I trust my work," he said. "I don't think that anything will go wrong."
