Bulgaria should have qualified for the final because of the following factors:

- Yakuita scored just 3 sets of 9 points while Bulgaria scored 4 sets of 9 points
Yakutia qualifies for the final instead of Bosnia Herzegovina because:
- Both Bosnia & Yakutia scored 4 sets of 10 points
- Bosnia scores just 2 sets of 9 points, while Yakutia scores three sets of 9 points.
As our results show, Bulgaria and Yakutia should have qualified for the final of this years Turkvizyon Song Contest instead of Turkmenistan and Bosnia & Herzegovina . We believe that it is only right that the organisers of the contest admit that they have made a mistake and remove Turkmenistan and Bosnia & Herzegovina from this Friday’s final.
