Just last week Kristian Kostov brought the house down inside the VEGAS Kuntsevo shopping centre as the closing act of the Moscow Eurovision Party 2018.

And on Friday the Eurovision 2017 runner-up announced another special performance — this time with Equinox — Bulgaria’s Eurovision 2018 act — at Eurovision in Concert in Amsterdam.

The “one night only” performance works well for Kristian, who is a huge fan of the Bulgarian entry “Bones”.

“I feel honoured to be able to sing together with EQUINOX,” he said in a statement sent to wiwibloggs. “I think ‘Bones’ has a beautiful message. This project is all about love, talent and music”.

“I hope EQUINOX will do great in Lisbon. I dream to see Eurovision in Bulgaria and I will support everyone who is waving the Bulgarian flag.”

The performance will mark a reunion on a number of levels. Boris Milanov, one of the composers behind “Bones”, wrote Kristian’s entry “Beautiful Mess”. And Vlado, one-fifth of Equinox, supported Kristian as a backing vocalist in Kyiv last year.

Kristian has released three songs in recent months — “Glubina”, “The One” and “Burning Bridges”. The latter is a collaboration with fellow Eurovision 2017 act JOWST from Norway.

In January Kristian won the public choice award at the prestigious European Border Breakers Awards.

Equinox — whose name is symbolic of where light meets darkness — consists of Zhana Bergendorrf, Vlado Mihailov, Johnny Manuel, Georgi Simeonov and Trey Campbell.

They’ll sing the electro pop anthem “Bones”, which continues Bulgaria’s recent trend of ominous and dark art-pop with slick production.

Trey, a singer and songwriter from Los Angeles in the United States, jointly composed “Bones” alongside Borislav, Joacim Persson and Dag Lundberg.

He describes performing in Eurovision as “an honour”, and is hoping to raise the profile of the contest in the United States.

Identifying strongly with the song’s hook, he recently described “Bones” as a number that transcends the physical side of love.

“[It’s about] loving someone beyond everything that you may see. Especially in these times, it is important to be looking deeper, to be caring deeper, to be caring about things that are not necessarily just of the physical.”

“‘Bones’ should inspire people just to be more loving. If you love someone despite what what they look like or what their skin colour may be, you are actually loving the person — the human — first and foremost.”

Are you excited about tonight’s collaboration in Amsterdam? Do you think that Equinox have what it takes to win ESC 2018? Let us know in the comments box below!

Also in the stand-in department, Monsieur will be without Madame in Amsterdam as Émilie is currently not well – let’s hope she feels better in time for Madrid. Destination Eurovision participant Noée will perform in her place alongside Jean-Karl

Bulgaria so desperately wants to win lol which is totally ok.,
maybe it will happen this year, who knows, don’t like their song don’t hate it either, not bad, my favorites France, Ukraine and Austria probably will not win anyway (maybe top 10 for Ukraine or France) so i’m ok with Bulgaria to win in Lisbon, at least it’s way better than ‘lie to me’ or ‘toy’ silly acts….

and i love Kristian, he is total sweetie:)
