Bulgaria: Internal selection despite bigger plans

It hardly comes as a surprise, but Bulgarian broadcaster BNT will once again pick their artist for the Eurovision Song Contest internal. They will handpick their act for Lisbon.

The broadcaster openly discussed the possibility to have a national final in the future, but also openly told that this might cost them more money than they can afford. Thus, they will stick to the gameplan that gave them a lot of success in recent years.

The participation of Bulgaria was also in jeopardy, after broadcaster BNT had to look for another director. They will miss out on the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Georgia, but will be able to take part as planned in Portugal at the ‘Main Event’.
