The countdown to Eurovision 2012 is well and truly underway, with just a month and a half before this year’s competition touches down in the Azerbaijani capital Baku. Once again two semi-finals will see the bulk of the countries battle it out in the hope of progressing through to the Grand Final on Saturday May 26, where waiting will be the big six of the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and host nation Azerbaijan. We’re continuing our daily look at the countries’ entries in the lead-up to Eurovision 2012.
CAN BONOMO : Love Me Back
24 year old Turkish singer Can Bonomo first found fame through various radio shows in his homeland. A career in television followed soon after and his star rose further after being selected to represent Turkey at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Can will compete in the second semi final on Thursday May 24, where he’ll be up against 17 other countries including Sweden, Macedonia and Norway.
The track is a mid-tempo number that aims to combine pop sensibilities with a more tradition Turkish sound. Can appears not to have the strongest voice in the world, but with his movie star looks and million dollar smile, can he win Europe over with his charms? Only time will tell.
