Bulgaria - Illusion - Krassimir Avramov

16 - 7 pts in semi 1Watch the video including some gratuitous nudity at Krassimirs homepage.
You can also download the song (original and new versions) there as mp3 or wave file.
A new version , the 'Stage Version' was recorded for Eurovision.

The album is a best off album title Popera - Illusion, The Best Of Krassimir Avramov. It has 19 tracks, many from his acclaimed Popera CD and three versions of Illusion. I don't know yet if the Radio version is different from any of the tracks on the cdsingle.

For Moscow it comes in a deluxe fold out sleeve with dvd including videos, photo's and info.
Update 2013: So they're the same versions as on the regular cdsingle, although sometimes with different titles.

There are also four bonus tracks which aren't credited but I assume it are songs by Petya Bukuklieva, Anna Lozanova (track 12 is her song Cry Over)and/or Albena Veskova, the singers who were on stage with Krassimir at the contest. (details wanted)

The dvd has the video, making of video, Karaoke video, Krassimir documentary, and two other clips. + bio and info for PC. And there's a Welcome To Bulgaria promotion presentation.
