Three songs remain to be revealed from “a little dramatic”:

dive into unknown is finally here 💙 We got the inspiration for the song by listening to the sounds of the sea🌊 and staring at it from the distance

Bulgaria in the Eurovision Song Contest
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.
