Bulgaria joined the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005, and have participated in just twelve contests. Prior to 2016, the country only qualified for the finals in 2007. They withdrew from the 2014 and 2015 contests, citing a lack of recent success as their reason for not taking part.

They returned in 2016, where they achieved their best ever result then with returnee Poli Genova, placing fourth, before Kristian Kostov's final position as runner-up in 2017.

The country qualified for the finals again in 2018 with Equinox, starting a qualification streak. They withdrew in 2019 due to financial difficulties, but have confirmed their return to the 2020 contest.
