Last month, VICTORIA presented the six potential tracks on her Eurovision 2021 shortlist: “UGLY CRY”, “Imaginary Friend”, “The Funeral Song”, “Growing Up Is Getting Old”, “Phantom Pain” and “Dive Into Unknown”. But she can only choose one song to take with her to Rotterdam on behalf of Bulgaria.
VICTORIA is expected to announce her choice some time in early March. Ahead of the internal selection, we asked our readers to vote for their favourite songs. And the results are in!
“Imaginary Friend” is your favourite song for VICTORIA to sing at Eurovision 2021
We counted a total of 3,378 votes in our poll. And there’s a clear winner. “Imaginary Friend” is your favourite song for VICTORIA to sing for Bulgaria at Eurovision 2021. In our poll, VICTORIA’s pensive ballad about unrequited love picked up a whopping 1,210 votes — that’s 35.82% of all votes cast.
Second place goes to “UGLY CRY”. The poppiest of all six potential Eurovision songs, VICTORIA released this track in November 2020. It’s the only track on the Rotterdam shortlist that doesn’t appear on VICTORIA’s EP a little dramatic. “UGLY CRY” received 828 votes — just under a quarter of all votes cast.
Rounding out the top three is “Growing Up Is Getting Old”. This song was included in Bulgaria’s internal selection process for Eurovision 2020, but ultimately lost out to “Tears Getting Sober”. In our poll, it picked up 438 votes — 12.97% of the total vote.
Further down the list are “Dive Into Unknown”, “The Funeral Song” and “Phantom Pain”.
In February, VICTORIA launched a feedback website for fans to leave comments about her six potential Eurovision songs. This was part of Bulgaria’s internal selection process and will ultimately inform VICTORIA’s song choice for Rotterdam. The site closed on 1 March — meaning a song announcement is imminent. Will VICTORIA’s choice match our poll results? Only time will tell.
