Krista Siegfrids Pisses Turkish Government Off With Her Golden Kiss

[FINNBAY] 15.05.2013. Turkey’s TRT, the official (national) television channel, cancelled showing semi and finals of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 over alleged fears of Finnish Eurovision candidate Krista Siegrfrids’ promised lesbian kiss on stage.

Krista Siegfrids Pisses Turkey Off With Her Golden Kiss, Eurovision 2013 song contest Finnish candidate teacher Krista Siegfrids forces Turkish national TV to ban the programme.TRT is the only channel who has the right to show the Eurovision Song Contest in Turkey.

Previously, the Turkish government decided not to take part in the 58th Eurovision Song Contest 2013 due to their protest of the current voting format where juries have 50% stake and audience another.

They also think that it is unfair that the “privileged” Big5 countries get direct tickets to the final without competing in semi-finals.

Though, TRT promised to show the contest.

Finland’s Eurovision candidate, Krista Siegfrids, is expected to kiss one of her female dancers on stage during her performances at the Eurovision Song Contest in semi and finals.

Krista’s motivation is believed to be a protest of the current same-sex marriage laws in Finland as well as to create a big voting block for her performance to win the competition.

Due to increased reports in Turkish media of Krista Siegfrids’ kissing a woman in rehearsals, warm-up gigs, and her plan to engage in the same activity during semi and finals, gay activists in Turkey are claiming that this is what made TRT to cancel showing the Eurovision song contest in Turkey.

TRT did not comment on the issue but claimed that the “ratings will be too low” to warrant showing the competition.

This news was first broken by Finnbay in Finland.

Update, 18 May 2013, 22:30: Krista kissed her stage dancer at the ESC as expected.

I'am also Turkish! But, I feel so pathetic and ironic that how lesbians obviously kiss on tv! Is it belong to Finnish-culture to publically expose your inner-feelings? I wonder, what would've been if they were two men and attending this in public areas? Off course, when they're female is "ATTRACTIVE" to women or Men! I can read your mind falks:)! Wouldn't that seem disgusting to you if you are not sick in mind? How would you Finnish ppl explain to your kids while two men do same act on TV? By the way, i'am not conservative nor supporting right-wingers. You can call it ( MARGINAL) I just beleive there must be NORMS&VALUES which it holds you up against your " EGO-LIB "..

if Turkey doesn't compete,of course ratings will be lower. It's stupid to think they've cancel the transmition because of the lesbian kiss. I think 95% of my countrymen are against same-sex marriage, but this doesn't mean Romanians will not watch ESC.

As a Turkish person, i should explain something: Our current goverment is controlling TV and all other media. So there is no such thing as Turkish people will not watch it, it's just one of their popular excuses to ban the show.

Some said in reddit that Finally Finland figured out the pop scene. Whore your way to the top, plain and simple and this year we might even stand a chance :D. Also, love how all this is upsetting the conservative religtards. Go Krista, show them some good old fashioned northern promiscuity! He was right and 3:19 if that's what you want to see :)
