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.
