Prominent Bulgarian musicians and members of the social network Facebook are protesting Tuesday against Krasimir Avramov's song "Illusion," which was selected to represent Bulgaria in the "Eurovision 2009" contest finals in Moscow.

As soon as the results were announced, the song and its author, Krasimir Avramov, became subject to fierce criticism on the part of some of the country's top musicians. Renowned composer Nayden Andreev appealed to Avramov to immediately withdraw his bid, while famous performers, Yordanka Hristova and Kiril Marichkov, directly accused Avramov of singing out of tune.

There is an online petition in Facebook demanding that the vote's results are annulled. The petition is titled: "Krasimir Avramov's Song for Eurovision Is a Disgrace to Bulgaria." In less than 48 hours, the online group collected 5,000 signatures.
