A gay transvestite is being tipped to represent Bulgaria at this years Eurovision song contest in Athens.

The infamous artist, Azis, 28, will accompany Mariana Popova on stage to perform the Eastern European country’s 2006 entry, Let Me Cry.

Last week the United Kingdom chose unknown rapper Daz Sampson, over former blue star Anthony Costa and Hearsay’s Kym Marsh, as their representative with his track, Teenage Life.

Israeli transvestite Dana International won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1999.

This years competition takes place on May 20 in Greece.
