Incidents

Disqualified entries

The entries were revealed by TRT during a grand pre-show. Among the 15 entries thet were announced, South African duo No Method's "City Lights" and Aleyna Tilki ft. Emrah Karadumans's "Yalniz Cicek" were in too. "Yalniz Cicek" was replaced by the foreign act, Azusena's "In The Water", due to the song being a cover. Since the selection could not have two foreign acts, TRT decided to disqualify "City Lights" too, and Siva's "Tatli Telas" competed instead. No Method expressed their willingness to be the foreign act in the next edition, however, TRT rejected potential foreign acts in the near future after Azusena's victory.

OGAE

Simge's "Ben Bazen" was selected to represent the country in the OGAE Second Chance Contest 08.
