Victoria Georgieva represents Bulgaria with the song "Growing Up is Getting Old"

Victoria Georgieva is coming back this year as Bulgaria's representative for Eurovision 2021 after the cancellation of last year's show and her song has been selected.

The singer released in February her first ever EP and announced that every song featured in it, as well as "Ugly Cry" released last year, were all potential Eurovision entries. The choice was yet to be made as she wanted to hear from the fans.

Ahead of the announcement, producer Genoveva Christova spoke about the selection process:

– We believe that we made the best possible choice. We have a long road ahead of us and with the song we chose, Victoria will feel most confident and comfortable in May.

After all was taken into account, during the live stream of her "a little dramatic" concert, Victoria announced that she will be singing "Growing Up Is Getting Old" at Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam.

Victoria Georgieva, known professionally as Victoria, is a Bulgarian singer and songwriter. She began her career after participating in season four of X Factor Bulgaria.

Prior to this participation, Victoria had tried her luck three times but unsuccessfully. The singer ended up ranking at number 6 in the talent show.

Shortly after her breakthrough on national TV, Victoria received an offer to join Virginia Records which she declined. It was in 2016 that she signed with Monte Music and released her very first single, "Nishto Sluchayno". After one year, and two other singles, Victoria left the label.

One year later, Victoria travelled to California where she started writing in English and in 2019 she was invited to represent Bulgaria in Eurovision 2020 with the song "Tears Getting Sober". Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was cancelled but Bulgarian public broadcaster kept her for this year's edition.

Since the cancellation of the event, Victoria has released the two new singles "Alright" and "Ugly Cry", and even her first EP, "a little dramatic".
