It’s Poli Genova for Bulgaria!
The next song and artist to enter the official 2011 Eurovision line-up comes from Bulgaria. After a 19-song marathon of a National Final in Sofia, young Poli Genova took the title with her song “Na Inat (Stubborn)”.
Poli is no stranger to competition; she was the runner-up for the Bulgarian National Selection back in 2009 with the song “One Lifetime is Not Enough“, and she was also part of the group that represented Bulgaria in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest back in 2007. They grow up so quickly, don’t they?
Last year, Bulgaria failed to reach the Finals with local star Miro and his song “Angel Si Ti”. In fact, Bulgaria has only managed to reach the Finals once in their entire Eurovision history (2007’s “Voda“, which reached an impressive 5th place). Do you think Poli will take “Na Inat” back to the heights that Elitsa and Stoyan took Bulgaria four contests ago?
