Introducing 2013: Bulgaria!

I have decided to take a look at each entry this year, in a lead-up to the contest! There are 39 countries participating this year, all aiming to win in Malmo (well, some don't wanna win!) Turkey, Portugal, Slovakia and Bosnia & Herzegovina decided to withdraw this year, which was a shame, so lets hope they'll decide to return for 2014! I have drawn all the countries randomly and today it's Bulgaria's turn...

Elitsa Todorova & Stoyan Yankoulov - Samo Shampioni!

The duo which came 5th in 2007 for Bulgaria have returned! BNT, the Bulgarian broadcaster, have tried various genres over the years but none of these proved successful. Elitsa and Stoyan were therefore asked to return and they accepted the offer immediately! There was a small national final on 3rd March where they performed three songs to the Bulgarian public and jury. Much to Europe's disappointment, Kismet became victorious but a week later Samo Shampioni was announced as the Bulgarian entry. Why? Because they couldn't come to an agreement with the composer of the Kismet. And apparently Elitsa didn't want Kismet to win so she'll be pleased it got changed.

Samo Shampioni isn't going to win the contest but I'm sure we will see it in the final! Like all their music, we hear traditional Bulgarian sounds with electronic beats - and drums! Unfortunately, the song is not being received positively among fans but that was the case in 2007 too and look what happened... I can see that their music isn't to every bodies taste but I love it! It's in my top ten and I would be really disappointed if they stayed in the semi. Bulgaria competes in the second semi final!
Samo divi, samo shampioni,  zlatni momtzi, momi za milioni...
Enjoy! Would you like to see Bulgaria back in the final?
