Bulgaria made an unexpected announcement letting us know that their originally entry “Kismet” has been dropped and instead “Samo Sampioni” was chosen as the song for Malmo. the latter was the favorite to win the National Final but the televoters preferred “Kismet”.

The rumor mills haven’t stopped and copyright issues were mentioned as well as the broadcaster’s intent to send the more popular song (or at least perceived to be) to increase the odds for Elitsa & Stoyan in May.

We would like to know from you what your thoughts are. Do you like the change or should they have stuck to their guns? Vote in the poll bellow

    Slightly better but still not my taste.

    The way they did it was bad, but Kismet was truly awful and wouldn’t have done well for them. If at least this one gets to the final I am sure Bulgaria will stay and not withdraw.

    Not a fan of wasted national finals, but it’s the smart choice. Elitsa said it was her fav song of the three anyways, so she’ll be more invested now.
