BNT: “Junior Eurovision is an important project for us, but it’s not like we have many ideas about how to keep it up going”

It looks like the Bulgarian broadcaster is in the middle of a crisis regarding their participation at the upcoming Junior Eurovision Song Contest. BNT has stated on Twitter that there are no current plans to take part in the competition this year, but a final decision hasn’t been made yet.

“We’ve not given up, though. JESC is an important project for us, but it’s not like we have many ideas how to keep it up going.”, stated BNT. “It all depends on a decision by the governing body of BNT. So, we are waiting.”, they added.

Bulgaria made its debut at Junior Eurovision in 2007, but withdrew a year 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 leaded the country to host the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2015. Last year, they came 9th with Lidia Ganeva and her Magical Day.
