Bulgaria successfully hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2015, finished fourth in the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016 and this year finished second. It seems that when it comes to success in the Eurovision Song Contest, Bulgaria is heading in the right direction!
Thank you to Bulgarian National Television for the video footage and Anna Velikova for the photographs.
