They've got a lot of media attention since last Monday when it was revealed they were picked by the Turkish national broadcaster to represent their country in Oslo.

"This is a competition we would go to without thinking and we'll do our best," said Ferman Akgül, the vocalist of the band, "We started preparing for the Eurovision Song Contest soon after we got the MTV Best European Act award. "

According to him, maNga will choose their song very soon.  

The jury from the broadcaster, TRT, will meet in mid-February to make their final decision on which song will represent Turkey in Oslo. The song will be introduced to the public as soon as a clip for it is finished.

Turkey's Hadise finished fourth in the 2009 edition of Europe's favourite TV-show with her Düm Tek Tek.
