Bulgaria’s Eurovision Journey
Bulgaria debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2005 with the song “Lorraine” sung by Kaffe. The song came 19th in the semi-final, scoring 49 points. Following a string of non-qualifications, Bulgaria took a short break from the contest in 2014 and 2015, returning in 2016 with Poli Genova. Her entry, “If Love Was A Crime”, placed 4th overall. This was followed by Bulgaria’s best ever result in 2017 with “Beautiful Mess” by Kristian Kostov, which placed 2nd in the Grand Final with 615 points.
In 2021, Bulgaria was represented by VICTORIA, with “Growing Up Is Getting Old”. The song placed 11th in the Grand Final with 170 points.
