The host country Bulgaria went all out with the national final for Junior Eurovision this year, holding six heats and four semi-finals, all leading to the final, where one out of twelve acts would be the eventual winner of the contest.
The twelve acts were:
Dilyan & Kostadin Diyakov

The song that 12 year old Gabriela will be singing at Junior Eurovision will be decided at a later date, and selected internally by BNT and bTV.
Here is the song Gabriela sung at the national final, titled Osadeni Dushi (not her JESC song):
