Bulgarian broadcaster BNT have now announced that Victoria Georgieva, otherwise known as VICTORIA will be representing Bulgaria at Eurovision 2020, set to be held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
VICTORIA came to fame after participating in the 4th season of the X Factor Bulgaria, the same season that featured former Eurovision runner up, Kristian Kostov. Her latest single, I Wanna Know, has had hundreds of thousands of streams across YouTube and Spotify, and it is expected that she will release her debut album in 2020.
In reference to her upcoming gig, VICTORIA says, ‘In the beginning of 2019, I just couldn’t imagine how many opportunities will open up for me. I am proud to be the Bulgarian artist in Rotterdam. I am privileged to be able to make music that I believe in and to have the freedom to be who I am. Being the Bulgarian ambassador on such a huge stage is a big responsibility.’
Genoveva Christova, who is VICTORIA’s producer and manager believes that Eurovision will be a stepping stone to her future as an international artist. She is confident that the return of Bulgaria will benefit the local music industry. She commented, ‘I would like to thank BNT for the trust and the cooperative attitude. Our effort is to unite the skills and the dreams of the creative people here and to give them international exposure.’
Her song will be released at a later date. For now, listen to I Wanna Know here:
