The announcement means that Bulgaria joins two other countries in revealing their Eurovision 2022 entry in December. The Czech Republic will reveal the winner of its national selection on December 16, while Albania selects on December 29.
Who are Intelligent Music Project?
The group will be joined by Ronnie Romero, who will be the lead band member for the country’s entry in Turin. He is famous for being the lead vocalist and member of several bands including Lords of Black and Rainbows.
In the group are also Slavin Slavchev (being an X-Factor Bulgaria winner), Ivo Stefanov, Bisser Ivanov, Dimitar Sirakov and Stoyan Yankoulov who is a very well known and seasoned Eurovision alumni.
He represented Bulgaria alongside Elitsa Todorova on two separate occasions, in 2007 in Helsinki with Вода (Voda) where they placed 5th and held the best record for their country for 10 editions, and later in Malmö in 2013 with Само Шампиони (Samo Shampioni) where they sadly missed out on a place in the Grand Final.

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.
