Poli Genova has revealed in an interview on morning television in Bulgaria that her song for Eurovision 2016 will be performed in English.
The singer who was announced last week as the Bulgarian participant for Stockholm was on the BNT morning news show today talking about her participation in the contest. She told the hosts that:
The song will be uplifting and in English, so that it’s accessible and everyone gets the message this time.
Bulgaria has not sent a song to the contest entirely in English since the 2009 contest in Moscow. In both 2010 and 2012 the Bulgarian entry was performed mainly in Bulgarian with phrases of English used in the performance. The official twitter account for Bulgaria in the Eurovision Song Contest added that it is not yet decided if there will be a section of the song performed in Bulgarian.
Poli added at the end of the interview that:
Since 2011 I have been dreaming and working for the moment I would be able to enjoy another 3 minutes on that stage. Hopefully they will be 6 this time.
