The Turkish Final was held at the Atatürk Kültür Merkezi in Istanbul on February 24th, hosted by Elçin Temel & Bülent Özveren. Before the final, there was a semi-final.  There were due to be 6 songs in the final, but “Bir yildiz” by Ilhan Irem was disqualified as it was released on an album before the final. The winning song was chosen by the votes of 17 regional juries.
