Turkey was present at the Eurovision Song Contest 1986, held in Bergen, Norway.
The Turkish national final to select their entry, the 1986 Eurovision Şarkı Yarışması Türkiye Finali, was held on 15 March at the TRT Studios in Ankara, and was hosted by Erkan Yolaç.
Four songs competed in the final. An "expert" jury of sixteen people decided the winner. However, at the end of voting, two of the four songs received eight votes each, causing a deadlock. To break the tie, the head of the jury ended up having his vote counted twice.
After the tiebreaker, the winner was "Halley," performed by the quintet Klips ve Onlar (Sevingül Bahadır, Gür Akad, Emre Tukur, Derya Bozkurt and Seden Kutlubay) and composed by Melih Kibar with lyrics by İlhan İrem.
