Bulgaria will choose their representative and entry to the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest tonight. Twelve acts hope to fly the Bulgarian flag in Baku next May.
The twelve finalists were shortlisted back on January 14th, when the semifinal was held. The Bulgarian representative in Eurovision 2012 will be decided tonight through a combination of jury deliberation and televoting at a 50%-50% stake.
The Bulgarian final will feature several Eurovision 2012 national representatives as guest artists: Anggun (France), Kurt Calleja (Malta), Soluna Samay (Denmark) and Ivi Adamou (Cyprus). Ukraine’s Gaitana will not be appearing after all. Elitsa Todorova and Stoyan Yankoulov (Bulgaria 2007) are expected to perform as well, besides other local artists.
The show will be hosted by Milenita, Alexander Sano and Drago Draganov.
