She cruised to victory at Eurovision 2012 in Baku and remains one of Sweden’s most acclaimed pop starlets.
And on Thursday “Euphoria” hitmaker Loreen took Bulgarian Eurofans to heaven when she suggested that Poli Genova could climb the scoreboard at Eurovision 2016 in Stockholm.
Speaking at a press conference in Sofia for relaunched music television station MMtv, Loreen had nothing but love for Poli’s entry “If Love Was a Crime”.
“I think Bulgaria’s chances this year are very high because it’s a strong song to be honest,” the 32-year-old said. “Whether it does win or not, it’s going to be something that is played outside of Bulgaria, internationally.”

“I think your song is actually very, very good. I think it’s international.”
“First of all it’s female. I’m trying to support the women in the music industry moving forward. She seems like a very cool girl. I love the song very much.”
Loreen — real name Lorine Zineb Nora Talhaoui — made the comments ahead of her first concert in Sofia, which will take place today.
She worked an off-duty model look that combined sophistication with her signature edge, teaming a dark top with 3/4-length trousers with parachute flair.
The “We Got The Power” singer wore her black tresses in a simple part, letting her locks flow in gentle waves down each side of her face.
