One of the most successful countries in the Eurovision Song Contest over the last couple of years has surely been Turkey making it to the top ten of the competition each and every year since 2006 whilst their first and only victory came back in 2003 thanks to Sertab Erener and her song 'Everyway That I Can' which won a nailbiting affair with Belgium over in Riga, Latvia. This year, they have decided to keep the style which saw them do well last year with a pop/rock influence clearly noticeable.

Last year, the Turkish broadcaster, TRT, called upon the winners of the MTV Award winners for the best European Act to represent the nation and maNga along with their song 'We Could Be The Same' managed to finish in second position which was their best result since their victory back in 2003. Thus, they have called upon an up and coming band called Yuksek Sadakat who will be presenting the song 'Live It Up' in the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Dusseldorf, Germany.

The promotional tour for the act commenced today and the destinations which have been included in their tour include Bosnia & Herzegovina, Azerbaijan, Germany, The Netherlands, Albania and our very own nation of Malta. During this promotional tour, the group are set to be making radio and television appearances as well as magazine interviews. We will be doing our best to let you know of their schedule here in Malta.
