All eyes are on Bulgaria!

After withdrawing from the Eurovision Song Contest in 2019 due to financial reasons, the country's broadcaster (BTN) confirmed their Eurovision 2020 participation back in October of 2019 after announcing that a sponsor would be in charge of all the costs envolving the participation.

Victoria - the singer internally selected to wave the Bulgarian flag in Rotterdam – has now released her Eurovision song Tears Getting Sober:

Victoria Georgieva (Виктория Георгиева), 22, is a Bulgarian pop singer who rose to fame during her participation in the country’s version of the British talent show, X Factor. She has released two Bulgarian language singles, where her latest single, I Wanna Know was released in June 2019 and has over 700,000 views on YouTube.

Victoria is truly proud of representing her country at Eurovision:

– I am privileged to be able to make music that I believe in and to have the freedom to be who I am. Being the Bulgarian ambassador on such a huge stage is a big responsibility, as the Eurovision Song Contest matters to so many people in Bulgaria, says Victoria.
