Sofi Marinova's NF's
Love Unlimited is not the first attempt for Marinova, she has been trying to make it to the ESC stage on several occasions.
Bulgaria's debut year(2005) gave us a national final of scandal and disgrace, phonecard scams and what have you.
In the final Marinova and her singing partner Slavi Trifonov refused to sing their entry Edinstveni (that had done well in the semi) and they still ended 2nd.
In 2006 the duo tried again with Lubovta E Otrova but that song was disqualified.
In 2007 Sofi Marinova teamed up with Ustata for Ya Tvoya (I'm yours) and ended 3rd.
