Where Are You? Bulgaria!
Throughout their nine years of participation, Bulgaria only managed to qualify once and this was in 2007 with the incredible Elitsa & Stoyan. They achieved 5th place. I feel Bulgaria should have made the final in 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2013. They're so underrated. Bulgaria's most recent effort, Samo Shampioni, was among my favourites that year so I was naturally gutted when duo failed to make the final. If Bulgaria was to return, I want to see either Dess or Azis compete in the contest. That would be fun! I also wouldn't mind seeing Sofi Marinova come back. She was fab! And totally deserved to have qualified.. Bulgaria are set to host Junior Eurovision at the end of the year - hopegully this is a promising sign for Eurovision 2016. Hopefully BNT, the national broadcaster, have now sorted out their finances and will be able to afford participation next year. Plus if Bulgaria ever did win the contest, Sofia is incredibly cheap apparently! :-)
