At the Head of Delegation meeting in Stockholm, it was revealed that Poli Genova is going to sing “If Love Was A Crime” at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, representing Bulgaria, and the song will be presented on the 21st of March.
“If Love Was A Crime” was written by Borislav Milanov, Sebastian Armann, Joachim Bo Persson, and Poli Genova herself. The song is about the courage of people who dare to love and are ready to fight for their feelings no matter the circumstances and the public opinion. When talking about the song, Poli Genova said:
The song is powerful, engaging and casts the one and only universal message – love is above all other circumstances. Love is something we discover everywhere around us and it is a feeling that is an essential part of us. It brings us energy and faith. And we feel exactly the same way, because we know love is what makes us unstoppable. We want this message to reach everyone in this world.
Bulgaria’s request of a deadline extension for submitting the video clip until the 20th of March has been approved by the EBU, and the same goes for Malta, Iceland, and Croatia.
“If Love Was A Crime” is going to be released on the 21st of March on the official Youtube channel of eurovision.tv.
