According to the Turkish media, their broadcaster TRT and maNga have signed a preliminary agreement for the band to keep their flag high in Oslo this May.
The band has given different signs in the past about the Eurovision Song Contest - sometimes mentioning they would like to do it, sometimes just the opposite. However, TRT has not yet confirmed anything in this matter, so time will tell who will represent Turkey at the 2010 edition of Europe's favourite TV-show.

About maNga

maNga's music is mainly a fusion of alternative rock and hip hop music, with a touch of Anatolian melodies; with electronic elements. In 2009 they both won the Best Turkish Act award from MTV Turkey and consequently the Best European Act award from MTV Networks Europe in MTV Europe Music Awards 2009.
Turkey placed fourth in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest with Hadise's Düm Tek Tek.
