We’ve only got a few more songs from the 2018 crop to hear, and I for one can’t wait for them. Today, we get a song from one of those countries yet to do the big 2018 reveal.
And it is a reveal, as they’ve gone down the route of an internal selection rather than letting Joe/Hans/Ivan/Kobi Pulbic have a say. The internal selection sometimes works, just ask Conchita Wurst of Sertab. Today’s birthday boy Мирослав ‘Миро’ Костадинов/Miroslav ‘Miro’ Kostadinov was subject to a more hybrid approach. He was always going to sing Bulgaria’s song in 2010, but the public got to choose which one it was. Their overwhelming choice was this one. Unfortunately it didn’t go down quite as well with the rest of Europe.
Miro is 42 today.
Честит рожден ден, Миро!
