Equinox has travelled to Lisbon, Portugal to film their postcard for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
The group from Bulgaria, Equinox, have travelled from the United Kingdom to Portugal after they attended the London Eurovision Party on Thursday. The five members recorded their postcard at the Mirador of Santa Luzia, sharing their adventure on their social media pages.
The postcards are short clips that are shown to the audience while the artist gets ready on stage. The following artists have also filmed their postcards:
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
- San Marino
- FYR Macedonia
Equinox was selected to represent Bulgaria in Lisbon with the song “Bones”. The group is composed of five vocalists: Zhana Bergendorff, a Bulgarian singer/songwriter who won the 2013 edition of X Factor Bulgaria; Vlado Mihailov, Bulgarian singer/songwriter, the frontman of the bands Safo and Sleng; Georgi Simeonov, a Bulgarian singer, songwriter and producer who debuted in the Bulgarian boy band 032; Johnny Manuel, an American singer who gained popularity from America’s Got Talent 2017; and Trey Campbell, also an American singer who has written songs for singers like Bebe Rexha, Julie Bergen, and Alexandra Stan.
At the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, 17-year-old Kristian Kostov finished in second place in the Grand Final, bringing Bulgaria their best ever result. 2017 saw Bulgaria make only their third final in their Eurovision history, the first being in 2007 when Elitsa & Stoyan finished 5th with the song “Water”. Bulgaria debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine in 2005. The country competed annually from 2005 to 2013, before withdrawing for two years due to financial issues.
