Eurovision 2023: The Bulgarian Fans Chose Their Favorite, BNT Refuses To Participate

Once again, The Bulgarian Independent Eurovision Website and OGAE Bulgaria have organised the yearly Eurovision poll that broadcasts the biggest favorite of the Bulgarian community. This year there was no exception despite the poor result of our country in Turin last May. As we know, Bulgaria has failed to qualify for the final for the first time since 2013. We assume this is one of the main reasons why BNT has decided to step out of the contest and miss the upcoming edition that will be hosted in Liverpool, United Kingdom after Ukraine’s victory.

The poll took place during the past few weeks and for the first time ever, there was an opportunity to vote across five different media platforms – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, and our website. The total vote count from the three stages of the poll marked around 12 000 votes in the mentioned media channels. In the first two stages, we have presented you with duels according to the singers’ music genres, while in the finale all of the artists have been collecting points on their own. The winner was the one who has received the most votes (across all social media).

After the final count, the results are as it follows:

  1. Galena
  2. Mihaela Marinova
  3. DARA
  4. Azis
  5. Poli Genova
  6. MOLEC

The poll managed to show that Bulgaria has many talented artists who deserve to get on the big stage of Eurovision Song Contest, but there is need of accessibility and awareness. Unfortunately, we will not be seeing a Bulgarian representative in the contest this year, but we hope this will change very soon.
