Bulgarian national television announced a few minutes ago that the duo Deni and Marti will be their representatives at Junior Eurovision 2021. The contest will be held in Paris on December 19.
Deni and Marti have been selected internally by the BNT and presented through a press conference held at the BNT studios on the morning of this Monday, 8 of November. The bulgarian heads of delegation at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest as well as several directors of national television have intervened, who have been very excited about this new Eurovision adventure.
The duo will sing the song “Voice Of Love” and it will be a ballad with clear ethnic references. A Bulgarian-Macedonian team will produce the Bulgarian song at Junior Eurovision 2021. It consists of Vasil Garvanliev, Davor Yordanovski, Vesna Malinova and Stan Stefanov.
It should be remembered that at first the BNT ruled out its return to the Junior festival, but finally and after hard efforts in the project, the country made the decision to participate in one of the most anticipated editions of the contest’s trajectory.
The city council of the city of Dobrich will pay a large part of the expenses of the Bulgarian delegation for Paris, together with the company LIGNA studios. The budget of the municipality of Dobrich for 2021 was increased by 355,000 BGN, which comes to about 181,531.73 euros. During the governing council meeting, it became clear that the Dobrich City Council will participate as the main organizer of this year’s Junior Eurovision. It turned out that these funds are also included in the budget, but it was not clear how much they amounted to.

Bulgaria last participated in the 2016 edition, in which they were represented by Lidia Ganeva and hers “Magical Day”, which achieved a ninth place from 17 participating countries.
