Following Gjon’s Tears and Barbara Pravi’s performance in Madrid, the next Eurovision 2021 act to grace the Spanish capital is Victoria from Bulgaria who travelled to Spain yesterday in order to treat the Spanish audience with her 2021 Eurovision entry ‘Growing up is getting older ’. Will Spain’s douze points go to la Bulgaria in Rotterdam?

Victoria flew all the way from Sofia to the majestic Spanish capital yesterday in order to perform her Eurovision entry for the Spanish audience on Telecinco’s epic show Rocio Contar La Verdad Para Sequir  Viva. She sang her Eurovision entry in English with a mix of Spanish lyrics.

Bulgaria in Eurovision

Bulgaria debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest  in 2005 and is yet to win the competition.  The Balkan nation’s best result in the contest was achieved in 2017 when Kristian Kostov placed 2nd in the Grand Final in Kyiv.

Bulgaria has participated in Europe’s favorite television show 12 times. The country withdrew from the competition in 2014 due to financial reasons and returned to the event in 2016 with flying colours when Poli Genova placed 4th in Stockholm.

Prior to 2016 Bulgaria had only made it once to the Grand Final since its debut in 2005. The country has seen a reversal of fortune in the contest since its return in 2016, qualifying to the Grand Final three years in a row ( 2016, 2017, 2018).

In 2019 the country withdrew from the competition again due to financial issues and was set to return in 2020 with Victoria’s ‘Tears getting sober’, but the event was cancelled due to the coronavirus global pandemic.
