Bulgaria is the host of JESC 2015!
The General Directors of BNT and BNR (Vyara Ankova & Radoslav Yankulov) and the Director of the EBU (Ingrid Deltonr) have today met with Prime Minister Boyko Borisov to discuss the Junior Eurovision. Ms Ankova stated “”The most important topic standing before BNT is precisely the organization of children’s Eurovision and I am glad that we got great support in this regard. I think this is a chance not only for BNT, it should be a national cause for Bulgaria. Hence, today I can say that Bulgaria and national television will be the host of this prestigious event.” This means we will be going to Bulgaria for their very first Eurovision event!
As for the budget, it is not clear how much it will cost the organization of the final competition. But experts are convinced that in any case it would be a huge advertisement for Bulgaria. The initial budget will be set to 2 million euros, which is more than Malta spent (Malta spent 1.4 million: Source)
Slavi Trifonov and “Ku-Ku Band” will also be involved, and of course Krisia will perform.
