BNT has just revealed that they have internally selected Kristian Kostov as Bulgaria’s entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, with the song “Beautiful Mess”.
Kristian Kostov was born in 2000 which makes him the youngest performer in the Eurovision Song Contest this year. In 2014 he was one of the finalists of The Voice Kids in Russia, where he was one of the finalists, and had Dima Bilan as his mentor in the show.
“Beautiful Mess” was written by Borislav Milanov from Bulgaria, Sebastian Armann from Austria, and Joacim Bo Persson from Sweden. When talking about his Eurovision song, he said:
Beautiful Mess is authentic, interesting and transmits the sentiment and the main idea of the song. I like the song, because it’s what I am. Last November, I started working with Borislav Milanov with the idea to submit a song for Eurovision either for this year or next. As a performer, now I’m trying to find myself and actually Beautiful Mess is my first song that has a deeper meaning. I like it a lot. My vision for the future is actually to do projects that make sense, so that’s a step in the right direction for me. Besides this, my fans will see me in a different light than in my past projects, so I am really curious to find out what their reaction will be.
The song Kristian Kostov is going to be singing in Kiev is going to be presented at 17:00 CET today, so stay tuned.
