Novinar - Bulgaria | Monday, November 26, 2012

Bulgaria should stay away from ESC

Poland and Portugal have cancelled their participation in the 2013 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest for financial reasons. Bulgaria should do the same, the daily Novinar writes, but not only for lack of funds: "It is time for Bulgaria to draw the line, as painful as it may be: we've participated in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2005 and only once have we made it to the finals, when Elitsa and Stundschi took fifth place. We love to remember this mini-victory when the time comes, as a motivation to try yet again. Meanwhile Bulgaria's participation is more like menstruation: it hurts, triggers contradictory emotions and in the end all you think is: thank God it's over. Until the next time. We would hardly be missed in Malmö, although the state television is once again determined to take part. And Bulgarian viewers couldn't care less one way or the other either."
