Miro’s song Angel Si Ti (You Are an Angel) will represent Bulgaria in Eurovision 2010 in Oslo. The song’s official video was released in March.

Vote for Miro on the semi-finals on May 25th and 27th! Watch the contest streaming live from Oslo. And then vote for him again on May 29th! Let’s vote Bulgaria the European music winner!

Miro wrote the song himself, and you can tell. Another author’s words could never have sounded so sincere and deep. This is my translation of the lyrics:

We were children

Some of us have grown up

Others have not

They remained angels

You have the key

The doors are closed

Behind them lives an angel with wings

You are and angel, don’t you believe?

An angel foretells your path

You are angel, have you forgotten?

Your love proves it

Like an angel, be merciful

An angel in its grace

Mercilessly righteous

You are an angel

Among vivid vanity, be yourself

Don’t replace the truth with lies

Because you are different

You are an angel

You are..

You are..

You are my angel

You are an angel, don’t you believe?

An angel foretells your path

You are angel, have you forgotten?

Your love proves it

Bulgaria selected our representative for the most amazing international singing contest, Eurovision (read my previous post)!

Miro!!!

 

I can’t wait! I don’t doubt Miro will do a great job (even without Galia from the former duo KariZma). Miro is  charming and with great voice, one of the most prolific Bulgarian singers! His music sounds very modern and is usually soft and melodious (unlike Lordi, 2006’s travesty-of-winners).

Miro’s “I Lose Control (When You Are Not There)” with the (awkward) sado-mazo video but otherwise lovely lyrics:

In past years, the Bulgarian national television organized singing contests and allowed the public to vote for the performers they wanted to represent us in front of Europe. Although this was a democratic approach, the results were controversial: it seemed that the opinions of the experts, of the general adult audience, and of the teenagers (the ones who generally send the bulk of the text message votes) hugely differed. Somehow the more popular singers often outran the more capable ones (remember Dj Take Me Away, which didn’t even make the finals?)

This year, Bulgaria did what Greece, Italy, and Great Britain had always been doing. It took the voting privilege from the audience. The National Television (the organizers) invited fifty-one of the most well-respected Bulgarian musical specialists and asked them to nominate their favorites for this year’s competition. Miro was first with 10 votes. Number two and three were Poly Geneva and Nora Karaivanova (Music Idol winner) with 7 and 3 respectively. It would have been interesting to send Nora in Oslo! But I admit that Miro is more experienced and maybe the more appropriate choice.

Now, Bulgarians can vote for one of the five songs that have been created for Miro.

They are all wonderful, but I am a little bit disappointed that only two of them are in English. The lyrics are beautiful in Bulgarian, but how is Europe going to understand them?!?!?! 

I vote for the Angel song, if only someone translates it into English!!!

“August Is September”… because I am going away from you… I hope you too love this song:
