Bulgaria in Eurovision
Bulgaria debuted in Eurovision in 2005 with Kafe is and yet to win the contest, whilst the country achieved its best result in 2017 with Kristian Kostov’s Beautiful mess, nearly walking away with the Grand Prix (placing 2nd in Kyiv)
In 2017, Bulgaria selected Kristian Kostov via an internal selection in order to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv. The Bulgarian artist took Europe by storm with a mesmerising performance and gave his country its best Eurovision result.
The 2018 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 8, 10 and 12 May in Lisbon, Portugal.
