After a total of twelve selection events, the nine winners, along with nine additional contestants picked by a jury, will compete in a semi-final, to be held on 24 January. The nine best entries, picked by televoting, will then proceed to the final, where they will be joined by three "wild card" artists, the entries of which will be selected and produced internally by BNT. In the final, the public will decide who will represent Bulgaria in Moscow at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest.
