As a writer with the Eurovision disposition it was only inevitable that I should find myself merging these two interests. If it wasn't Sonia singing "Better the Devil You Know" that got me hooked on Eurovision, then it was the Gina G banger "Just a Little Bit". The 90's is where it all started for me, who knows where I'll end up!

    Krostov from Bulgaria was in Eurovision without preselection. The other countries have preselections. So I think that Bulgaria should not participate in Eurovision because they dont made preselection. Its not fair against the other countries.
