Bulgaria: Artistic director “honoured to work with Kristian”

Sacha Jean-Baptiste is the artistic director for Bulgaria this year. After the first rehearsal of Kristian Kostov, there were a lot of compliments for her staging, as Bulgaria revealed themselves as a candidate for a top result in Kiev.

This country report came together because you told us via social media you wanted more info on Bulgaria. Thanks so much for that feedback! Please keep voting on our polls and let us know which countries you’re interested in.

“It sounds so new, it sounds so tomorrow. I wanted to work with Kristian from the moment I heard the song for the first time,” Sacha tells ESC Daily. “Coming to Eurovision is an honour. I get to listen to a song and look at an artist and then create something out of my mind. If we get a top result, I would be so happy. But on the other hand, I don’t really think about the ranking. I have pushed every second, every camera angle. When I am happy with the work, I am happy for the next ten years.”
