If you feel the sudden urge to play Sofi Marinova’s “Love Unlimited” on repeat, don’t be alarmed. You’ve probably just sensed the news we can now confirm: Bulgaria will sing at Eurovision 2015!
Earlier today Joana Levieva-Sawyer, the head of delegation for Bulgaria, confirmed to wiwibloggs that state broadcaster BNT has filed its paperwork with the European Broadcasting Union and plans to sing in Vienna. This was our reaction:
In 2012 Bulgaria almost made the final for the second time in its history. Sofi Marinova, the Bulgarian singer, tied for 10th place with Norway’s Tooji on 45 points. Unfortunately she lost the tiebreak because Tooji received more points from more nations.
Stoyan & Elitsa, the only Bulgarian act ever to make the final (back in 2007), tried again in 2013. Sadly they failed to qualify—and Bulgaria decided to sit out the 2014 contest, owing to both its lack of success and its financial woes.
