We take part in the world-famous contest as a supporter, an ambassador of talent, of beautiful music and a sponsor.
This talented, charming and candid artist is VICTORIA from Bulgaria.
Let us introduce to you a future music star:
VICTORIA – the voice that represents Bulgaria at Eurovision.
Victoria started singing when she was 11. Her teacher and family encouraged her to trial for the X-Factor show. She was unable to pass through the judges the first 3 times, mostly due to her age. At her 4th show appearance, however, she got herself the nickname “Adele from Bulgaria” and she got to the 6th place.
That was still a good-enough achievement that opened the door for offers from Bulgarian record studios. Her first single, which translates to “Nothing is a coincidence”, went live in 2016. She has another 2 singles under a British label. The latest, called “I wanna know”, was released in June 2019 nears 1 Million views on Youtube.

Eurovision’s story at a glance.
The European songs competition has uncovered amazing talents since the first contest was held in 1956, at the Sanremo Music Festival in Italy. You probably know ABBA’s song Waterloo. It was the winner in 1974.
The first edition saw only 7 nations represented, giving start to a contest that would turn into a pan-European spectacle with singers and viewers from over 50 countries. The concept’s initial aim was to test the technological limits of the relatively new live broadcasting technology and the music was performed live by an on-site orchestra.
In the beginning, it made sense that performers should sing in their native language to best represent their country. That changed temporarily because the jury would better judge by understand the words. The original rules were later re-instated until 1999 and now lyrics in any language could take the spotlight, sung by any nationality representative.
Voting to award points for participants has been part of the contest since the early days. Televoting, as you know it today, was first trialled in 1997 and since 1998, it’s the recommended format.
Are you ready to vote for the best singers during the largest non-sporting event in the world?
