    Hey Gangstera! YANKUlOV (Yankulov) sounds identical to YANKUIOV (Yankuiov), be careful when using caps lock.

    In Bulgarian it must be Елица Тодорова и Стоян Янкулов - Вода, just for your information. It'll be good to be linked to the page with cyrillic characters I think.

    That's ok if he'd sang in English, but IMHO, he still could never win. Plus, Bulgarian entry was electrifying - till the end of the show.
