Elitsa & Stoyan performed 3 songs at BNT’s Sunday show “NedeliaX3.”  For many of us, this is the first time we’ve seen them both in 6 years and they are still as charming and charismatic as ever!

As we get more information we’ll add it to this webpage, but Zack had a chance to watch and give his first impressions on the songs.

Zack would personally love to see Bulgaria back in the finals.  Aside from one or two clunkers, he’s always loved their songs.  And he actually has “Love Unlimited” as his ringtone!

SONG 1: “Dzupai, libe boso” – Features two artists, Skiller and Jammi. One’s a rapper, one’s a beatboxer.  This is very laid back, with some nice keyboard touches.  But it’s almost like Elitsa and Stoyan are thrown in the background to let the rapper shine.  I really like the reggae overtones, but this is not a good choice for the Eurovision stage.

SONG 2: “Kismet” – Stolyan is on a regular set of drums with a static beat in background.  Two back-up singers are harmonizing and Elitsa joins in.  It’s a bit strange yet hypnotic.    Some ethnic touches like the bagpipes thrown in, which I really like.  This like “Dzupai, libe boso” is not as in-your-face as “Water,” but I like.

SONG 3: “Samo Shampioni“- This is more like “Water.” But it sounds more upbeat and happy, compared to the dark sound of “Water.” Perhaps this is the Ying to “Water’s” Yang? Stolyan is standing at his drums and carrying one strapped on his back, and he finally gets his big drum solo.   The bagpipes are back.  Some electronic elements.  To me, this screams EUROVISION!

    I hope they do not go for the rap song. I really think it is not good for EUROVISION – and rap songs haave seldom done well. If Bulgaria wants to be back in the finals, they have to go for option three.
