Kristian Kostov will represent Bulgaria at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. He has been selected internally by broadcaster BNT with the song ‘Beautiful Mess’, which can be heard here.
When asked about his song, Kristian gave an interesting explanation as to why he and his songwriting team chose this title. “’Beautiful Mess’ is authentic, interesting and transmits the sentiment and the main idea of the song. I like the song, because it’s what I am. As a performer, now I’m trying to find myself and actually this is my first song that has a deeper meaning. And I like it a lot.”
