Countries participating in the Eurovision 2016 song contest has started presenting their songs and artists, and most recently, Bulgaria has announced their contestant for the year. Poli Genova, who was a participant in the 2011 Eurovision song contest, will represent Bulgaria this year.

Unlike many other countries, Bulgaria had chosen against holding a national-level competition to choose the representative. Instead, she was chosen for her international popularity as a pop artist. Poli Genova was a judge in the Bulgarian version of "The X Factor."

She had also hosted the 2015 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. As Eurovision fans will remember, Genova had performed "Na inat" (Out of Spite) in the second semifinal round of the 2011 Eurovision. Although she didn't get very far with the judges, her performance found popularity among the viewers.
