Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite 

Kristian Kostov – Beautiful Mess | 2nd place, 615 points (Final)

After a rough start at Eurovision, with a streak of non-qualifications and only one success, Bulgaria came back with a blast in the late 10’s. They almost crowned their revival with a victory in 2017. A great contemporary ballad, with perfect vocals by the young Kristian. Added up with the stunning visual powerplay by stage designer Sacha Jean-Baptiste, Bulgaria could have gone all the way. Yes, this is their best entry to date.

Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite

Poli Genova – If Love Was a Crime | 4th place, 307 points (Final)

What a comeback for both Poli and Bulgaria! LOVED the music video, was instantly hooked. Actually shocked it came 4th because I was not living for the reflective, cycle-light dress and thought it was too kitsch to gain the juror vote, but as is proven, music is most important element and this song is worthy of such praise.
