VICTORIA’s song for Eurovision 2021 has been selected from the five tracks on her debut EP A Little Dramatic and earlier single “Ugly Cry”. All six tracks are well over three minutes long, so the selected track will need to be edited down for a Eurovision version.
Producer Genoveva Christova spoke about the thought that went into the song selection process. She said:
“Together with our partners from the Bulgarian National Television, the Eurovision Bulgaria team and VICTORIA, we have done our best to take into consideration the enormous feedback we received from all over the world. We are happy that so many people expressed their opinion on our potential songs for Rotterdam.
“Today, we had a meeting where we discussed the feedback from Bulgaria2021.com as well as from the focus groups. We believe that we made the best possible choice. We have a long road ahead of us and with the song we chose, VICTORIA will feel most confident and comfortable on the stage in May.”
VICTORIA’s Eurovision song will be revealed on 10 March
VICTORIA will present her song for Eurovision 2021 with a live concert on Wednesday 10 March. The concert will be broadcast on BNT 1 but will also be streamed live on VICTORIA’s YouTube channel. The concert will commence at 21:00 CET.
As well as performing her Eurovision 2021 entry, VICTORIA will also perform the other tracks from A Little Dramatic, and “her biggest hits”.
VICTORIA was internally selected by BNT to represent Bulgaria at Eurovision 2020. She would have sung “Tears Getting Sober” in last year’s contest, with the song a hot favourite to win. After Eurovision 2020 was cancelled, VICTORIA was given the return ticket to Rotterdam.
