Eagle eyed fans of the contest will have noticed by now that we’re waiting on two more entries for this year’s edition, with one of those being the returnee of Bulgaria. Fortunately we do not have to wait much longer for the last entry of 2016, and Poli Genova’s entry “If Love Was A Crime” will finally be debuted on March 21st!
The song was written by Borislav Milanov, Sebastian Arman (who has previously collaborated with Conchita Wurst), Joacim Bo Persson and Genova herself and also sees renowned Bulgarian flutist Teodosi Spasov contribute to the flavour of the composition. The EBU has suggested that the song is a truly international collaboration.
On the song, Genova (who represented Bulgaria in 2011) said;
The song is powerful, engaging and casts the one and only universal message – love is above all other circumstances. Love is something we discover everywhere around us and it is a feeling that is an essential part of us. It brings us energy and faith. And we feel exactly the same way, because we know love is what makes us unstoppable. We want this message to reach everyone in this world
Bulgaria will therefore become the 43rd and final song to revealed for Eurovision 2016, with Malta’s new entry expected before the weekend. As a result we will have a clear idea of who might win after Poli’s reveal!
