The show

In between every performance the “Diva” Ballet Group created the "postcards" with a dance and the melody of the participanting song in turn. The show featured the guest performances of four of this year's contestants: Kurt Calleja from Malta, Denmark's Soluna Samay, the Cypriot performer Ivi Adamou and from France Anggun.
Local acts also starred in the show such as the band TE, Grafa, Nely Rangelova or Vassil Naidenov. Eurovision 2007 Bulgarian performers Elitza Todorova and Stoyan Yankulov, who gave the country their best placing to date, 5th, sang a medley of their hits, and last year's Junior Eurovision performer Ivan Ivanov sang his Superhero.
