All 24 proceed to the second round of the contest on 25th February, where a panel will select the best 12 on a live TV show from the National Palace of Culture. Those 12 will continue to the Bulgarian final, to take place on 11th March.

Last year, the Bulgarian selection was marred by accusations of vote-rigging. The scandal broke when it was rumoured that the winning band, Kaffe, had generated an inflated number of SMS votes by using special SIM cards. Kaffe were eventually allowed to represent Bulgaria, but failed to make it through the international semifinal in Kyiv.
