Bulgaria at Eurovision
Since their return in 2016 with If love was a crime by Poli Genova, Bulgaria has achieved successful results in the contest; with a 4th place in Stockholm and 2nd in Kyiv last year with Kristian Kostov and his song Beautiful mess, the nation is seemingly headed for a better result every single year.
