No internal selection after all in Bulgaria. Several names (and songs) have been rumoured to be the one to follow Miro´s footsteps to Eurovision but now BNT has announced a national final will take place on February 23 after a rather complicated selection process. Some sort of Academy will propose singers, vote and select ten of them. Then these lucky ones can submit up to three songs each and the academy will choose again.... or something (do I think it will end up the usual way and the one they wanted from the beginning will win after all?). Anyways, in the end it's 50-50 televote-Academy vote that will send one to Germany hoping for the best... Bulgaria hasn't exactly been a success story in Eurovision so far with the exception of Helsinki 2007 edition when Elitsa and Stoyan drummed to the 5th place with excellent Water.
Did you read about Miro going around TV-shows in Bulgaria telling the winner was decided beforehand and as he didn't pay he didn't even get to the final... Yeah, right!
