BNT has revealed that they’re not planning a return to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The broadcaster withdrew from the competition last year due to the lack of time to constitute a new body following the election of the new Director-General.
Bulgaria made its debut at Junior Eurovision in 2007 but withdrew two years later. In 2011, they returned to the competition for a year, but it wasn’t until 2014 when they achieved their most successful result with Krisia Todorova and the song Planet of the Children. This second place led the country to host the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2015. In 2016, they came 9th with Lidia Ganeva and her song Magical Day.
