On Sunday, SBS revealed Australia will open a brand new competition named Eurovision: Australia Decides, for selecting its entry into the iconic song contest.

The 64th Eurovision Song Contest will be taking place at the Expo Tel Aviv (International Convention Center) in Israel on Tuesday 14, Thursday 16 and Saturday 18 May 2019. We look forward to again welcoming them at the "Eurovision", - the organizers wrote in social networks.

The EBU hopes to see both BNT and Bulgaria back in the competition in 2020.

This is the third time Bulgaria out of Eurovision. The Balkan nation's best result in the contest waas achieved in 2017 when Kristian Kostov placed 2nd in the Grand Final in Kyiv with handsome mess.


"SBS has been the Australian home of the Eurovision Song Contest for 35 years and 2019 will mark Australia's fifth year of competing in the event", he said.

Bulgaria made their Eurovision debut in 2005, and qualified for the first time for the Grand Final in 2007. The country withdrew from the competition in 2014 due to financial reasons and returned to the event in 2016 with flying colours when Poli Genova placed 4th in Stockholm with If love was a crime.

Eurovision 2019 marks Australia's fifth appearance at the music competition, with Indigenous artist Jessica Mauboy representing the country in this year's contest final in Lisbon.

It is also noted that the cost of processing the Bulgarian participant in the contest, including the creation of the song, her stage performance and production of the corresponding video clip, and other related preparatory activities significantly exceed reasonable amounts, which would afford company.
