“Intention” the Bulgarian entry for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Italy has been revealed.
Bulgaria’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 “Intention” has been revealed this morning on BNT’s morning show, Denyat zapochva s Georgi Lyubenov (The day begins with Georgi Lyubenov).
Music group Intelligent Music is representing Bulgaria in Turin 2022 with their song “Intention”. Speaking earlier this week the group explained:
The song raises the question of each of us’ personal inner struggle with outdated patterns of faith and behavior that pull us back. There is no safe area. There is a useless existence. Finding the right path, however, is a battle, even a war with oneself. Serious intention is needed to win the good!
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.
