We’re continuing on to a country that’s caught a lot of attention recently with a sharp turnaround in fortunes. After a couple of years out, Bulgaria returned to Eurovision in a new image and got two top 5 results in quick succession. They have some really interesting trivia facts to go through.
With some weeks before we begin looking forward to Eurovision 2019, it’s that time in a Eurovision fan’s year to reflect on past years and all the good music and events they brought. And, also, some trivia.
So You Think You Know… is a new series that will arrive each Wednesday, each time focusing on a new active Eurovision country. We are continuing alphabetically. Croatia will be next.
