Bulgaria: Victoria’s ESC 2021 entry to be selected from six songs; ‘Ugly Cry’ one of the potential ESC entries
Victoria’s Eurovision 2021 entry to be selected from a total of six songs, among which is her newly released single ‘Ugly Cry’.
The Bulgarian ESC 2021 hopeful, durng her intervied on a morning show on BNT,revealed that her Eurovision 2021 entry will be selected from six candidate songs , confirming the same time that her new single ‘Ugly Cry’ is one of the potentian ESC entries.
‘Ugly Cry’ is the result of a television camp in London, which took place in January. It was made in four hours and is one of the candidate songs for “Eurovision 2021”. Victoria explained that she is working on two more songs and it is not clear yet.
Talking about her new single she believes many people can recognize themselves in the song.
I’m brought up not to exalt myself too much when I do things I like, but rather to stand on the ground, of course, to pat myself on the shoulder, but also to tell myself that I need more.
Victoria’s potential Eurovision song has a hidden message. The story itself shows both sides of things – you may be down, you may be up, but in the end you make the choice – and this is the ultimate message that you do not choose either – you do not choose to be the person flying in the clouds, nor the one who creates without being noticed.
