Bulgaria at the Eurovision Song Contest
Debuting in 2005 in Kyiv, Ukraine. Bulgaria sent Kaffe with the song “Lorraine“. This was actually Bulgaria’s worst ever result with 49 points, finishing in Nineteenth-Place. The Black Sea nation only competed Twelve times. They only qualified four times.
Their first came in 2007 in Helsinki, Finland. BNT sent Elitsa & Stoyan with “Water“. They finished in Fifth-Place with 157 points. They needed to wait another nine years to qualify again. After a two year lay off, Bulgaria returned with returning artist Poli Genova with the song “If Love Was A Crime“. She finished in Fourth-Place with 307 points. She is now a huge fan favourite.
Bulgaria only then bettered themselves 12 months later finishing as Runners-Up with “Beautiful Mess” sung by Kristian Kostov. He earned a massive 615 points. But that wasn’t even close to Portugal’s run away winner in 2017. Scoring 403 points in their Semi-Final, Bulgaria holds the record for the highest ever score in a Semi-Final.
In 2018, Bulgaria opted for “Bones” with the group Equinox constructed by American and Bulgarian artists. They fell slightly short of recent performances with a Fourteenth-Place position with 166 points.
