In a recent interview on the BNT1 show 100% Awake VICTORIA revealed which of her six potential Eurovision songs were the most liked by fans.
Last week Bulgarian broadcaster BNT created a website for fans to express their thoughts on the six songs which are in the running to represent Bulgaria at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. The public had until February 28th to give feedback on the six songs.
According to BNT, in a few hours more than ten thousand fans from all around the globe used the opportunity to provide feedback to the delegation. BNT will take this public feedback into account when selecting their Eurovision 2021 entry.
The singer in an interview on the BNT1 show 100% Awake stated that “Imaginary Friend”, “the funeral song” and “growing up is getting old” were the three most liked of the six songs based on the fan feedback. The inclusion of the “the funeral song” was stated by the singer as a surprise to her.
When asked about why her new EP is named “a little dramatic” the singer responded with:
“I think that best describes my personality, some people said that means I’m a drama queen, that’s not it, I just like dramatic things for example in film music, it often sounds dramatic and that is something which inspires me”
