After the first of the two semi-final competitions with eighteen countries, which took place in the Russian capital Moscow Tuesday night, Avramov and "Illusion" garnered no more than seven points and failed to make it to the final, organizers announced after the wrap up of the grand show.

The Bulgarian contender for the Eurovision 2009 Song Contest, Krassimir Avramov, drew fierce criticism both before and after his appearance in Moscow. He was slammed at home on allegations of rigging the vote and flayed abroad for his poor performance.
