Bulgarian broadcaster BNT will continue participating in the Eurovision Song Contest. Bulgaria made its first appearance at this year's contest in Kyiv. The band Kaffe finished 19th in the semifinal with the song Lorraine.
BNT has started the search for the Bulgarian entry to the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest in Greece. BNT is looking for proposals for the rules of the contest, which can be submitted to the Bulgarian broadcaster until 31st July 2005.
At the suggestion of Prime Minister Simeon Saxe-Coburg Gotha, Bulgaria joined the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005. In order to select the first Bulgarian entry, Bulgarian broadcaster BNT organised a national selection afflicted by scandals and accusations.
In its first Eurovision Song Contest participation, Bulgaria did not succeed in qualifying for the final.
