Bulgarian national final for Junior Eurovision to be held today!

Today we will get to know the name of the Bulgarian representative for this year’s Junior Eurovision.

A total of 5 candidates qualified from two previous semi-finals will compete at the national final to represent Bulgaria in La Valletta (Malta). Each candidate will perform this time two songs up to their choice, one of them in Bulgarian:

Part 1:

  1. Preslava Petrova – “I Have Nothing” (Whitney Houston)
  2. Simona Krasteva – “Something Gotta Hold Me” (Christina Aguilera)
  3. Group Bon-Bon – “If Love Was a Crime” (Poli Genova)
  4. Lidiya Ganeva – “Who’s Loving You” (Michael Jackson)
  5. Dimitrina Germanova – “Memory” (From “Cats”)

(15 Minutes Voting Time)

Part 2 (Bulgarian songs):

  1. Preslava Petrova – “Mechta” (Own song)
  2. Simona Krasteva – “Ustrem” (Margarita Hranova)
  3. Group Bon-Bon – “Na inat” (Poli Genova)
  4. Lidiya Ganeva – “Rapsodia” (Roberta)
  5. Dimitrina Germanova – “Dve” (Poli Genova)

(15 Minutes Voting Time)


This time the winner will be decided by a 50-50 combination of public televote and professional jury panel, Grafa, VenZy, Nora Karaivanova, Teddy Katzarova, Borislav Milanov and
Gordon Bonello, after two rounds. This means that the Bulgarian audience will have to cast their votes via SMS in two different periods of 15 minutes which will start right after each set of songs. After each voting period is closed, the televoting results will be mixed with the ones from the jury panel.

At the end of the show, both set of results will be combined and the winner will be the one with the highest amount of points with the audience decision prevailing in case of a tie.

You can find a detailed explanation picture below:



During the show the following artists will perform as guests:

  • Volt
  • Poli Genova (to sing both “If Love Was A Crime” and a new song)
  • Grafa
  • Venzy
  • Teddy Katzarova
  • Gabriela Yordanova & Ivan Stoyanov

Keep in mind that the show will only reveal the Bulgarian representative as the song will be composed by the winner alongside professional composers selected by BNT. The song presentation will take place on a TV show by the end of September.
