Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

It represented Bulgaria in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. BNT organised an internal selection process in order to select Bulgaria's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. Producers, artists and songwriters were able to submit their entries from 14 November 2017 to 29 December 2017. BNT received a record number of 202 songs, and BNT determined there were thirteen "workable projects". On 30 December 2017, BNT revealed the song titles of the thirteen projects that would compete to be selected. The thirteen songs were evaluated by various focus voting groups. After receiving the feedback and results from the focus groups, the number of competing projects was shortlisted to three on 18 January 2018. The winner was set to be determined by 31 January 2018, though the official announcement was made on 12 March 2018.

The song competed in the first semi-final, held on 8 May 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal, where it placed 7th out of 19 with 107 points from the jury and 70 points from the public, totaling 177 points.[1]

Following their performance, Equinox attended a press conference during which the contestants drew which half of the final they would be performing in. Bulgaria was drawn to compete in the second half.[2]

In the grand final, Bones was the 18th song to compete. It placed 14th out of 26 with 100 points from the jury and 66 points from the public, totaling 166 points.[3]
