Bulgaria has entered the Junior Eurovision Song Contest four times, first entering in 2007.

Bulgaria's first entry was Bon-Bon with "Bonbolandiya", which finished 7th at the 2007 contest in Rotterdam. Their second entry was Krestiana Kresteva with "Edna mechta", which finished 15th and last at the 2008.

The Bulgarian broadcaster BNT has withdrawn from the 2009 contest, and Bulgaria did not compete in the contest in Kiev or the 2010 edition in Minsk. Bulgaria returned for the 2011 contest in Yerevan, then they took a break from the 2012 and the 2013 contests.

Bulgaria returned for the 2014 edition in Malta, earning their best ever result in a Eurovision competition when Krisia, Hasan & Ibrahim placed second performing "Planet of the Children".[1]

Their success helped reinvigorate public interest in the contest. According to Google Trends, Junior Eurovision was the eighth fastest trending event in Bulgaria for 2014, ahead of the Australian Open 2014 and New Year's 2014. [2]
