The national selection was won by Anna Trincher, who goes forward now to Sofia. “I participated in the national selection last year but didn’t manage to win. This time I won and am so happy and so overfilled with emotions,” said an emotional Anna on her victory. “I couldn’t believe that my dream came true! I couldn’t sleep the day before the final since I was so anxious. The best prize for me that day was my victory at the National Final!”
Anna is no stranger to international music competitions, having participated in The Voice Kids, Song in Romania, and Music Academy ‘Eurovision’ among others.
