Bulgaria
First of all, BNT can't afford Azis. They can't even afford the participation fee, hence the need of a sponsor every year.

But since 2016, Bulgaria really wants to win and they seem to be on the mindset that they'll need an English song for that. So for '22 I'm expecting another internally selected dark/sad pop entry, though they might aim for a more televote friendly song.
Yeah idk how true is that, BNT always make excuses but whatever, also no I fully expect that they will actally go into the total opposite direction and will send something more daring and in Bulgarian in 2022. They also understand that internal selections are a good temporary solution but in the long run it won't turn out good.

Just hope the sponsors will stay as it seems otherwise BNT just won't even try, they just don't have intetrest to participate it seems, anyways if the sponsors stay with the great team and delegation we have I am expecting something really good but who knows? We'll see what will happen I guess.

OK so they are holding another camp at the Bulgarian beach and I'm kinda worried...

they have Vasil, the songwriter of Here I stand, and another fad Macedonian songwriter who wrote their songs in 2000 and 2002... like when you look at the songwriters last year and compare them with these 3... hmm... why do they think that basically, 3 flops would do better than songwriters that got them 10th(11th) place in the final and 3rd place in a semi...

hopefully that they are not writing for eurovision but are just there to write a couple of songs for Vasil... because I do not get this shift.

Chalgaria > Boringia

I feel like :bg: has been absent from the contest since 2016.

Yes, now they are much more successful.
But the old Bulgaria was in my top 5 every single year and I doubt any country will ever manage to be that consistently fabulous year after year

It looks like BNT has selected rock band Intelligent Music Project as their 2022 representative at Eurovision.

That's so different from what they've been doing the last few years, but makes sense after the success of rock music. Has sending a similar song as the previous winner ever worked out, though?

Something interesting, the lead vocalist also said that it's not even fully official yet as he's expecting to sign the contract with BNT in the following week.

Another thing (but his audio started going bad so I couldn't make it out) - something about collaborating with international artists in order to get votes. This could mean Swedish songwriters or something similar to Equinox, but looks like they're focusing on the televote.

****some ps

The man in the interview is not the lead vocalist, but a businessman - founder of the group, who also writes/produces their music. It has had Bulgarian and foreign musicians, so his words about international collaborators might just mean the concept of this group (or label im not fully sure).

I didn't even believe it at first o_O I've seen that news 10 hours ago in a local Varna media and I skipped it thinking "lol, another act using ESC name for hype so early" :lol: What a random messy reveal, and I love it. Well, the rock won... but it's totally different, more old school. Can't wait to see what they come up with, to impress the televoters.

It's clearly fake, if it had been true the news would've been reported in all the ESC-websites and by BNT by now, when they didn't even mention ESC in the evening TV news.

This is not a random radio station, smartass, it's BNT's own radio with EBU membership. I don't think they would lie for people like that and the radio would follow their possible roleplay

No way! Such a random choice and way to serve it! I’m surprised not in a good way.

And also, after Finland won ESC in 2006, in 2007 Andorra, Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Iceland, Israel, Montenegro, Spain and Sweden, participated with an entry that clearly tried to copy that concept, and all of them flopped really HARD. Is that what Bulgaria wants? To take part in 2022 with an entry that would clearly give them a bottom 3 placement in the semifinal?

I... don't know how to feel about this, sending a rock song imo would be a mistake, we have seen everytime that a song in the style of the last winner never wins, also this announcment feels really random given that it's not coming from BNT, I haven't even heard of ''intellegent music project'' before

I atleast hope that the song will be in bulgarian to stand out at the very least, but if not then mehh, I don't like the direction that we are going in ESC in general now, yes we failed to qualify basically every year before 2016, but atleast I liked what we sended now since 2016, I have only really liked 2016 and 2020, 2021 was good but it was obvious it wasn't goint to do that well.

I am still hoping that this doesn't end up true but I am not holding my breath, maybe a NQ will show BNT that they should go back to more geniune and sincere entries but if not then idk, I will wait for the song of course before judging but it is not looking good imo.

Bulgaria trying something new and original every year is praiseworthy.

Btw, the number of people on this forum who don't know what rock music is and what rock music's subgenres are is alarming.
