Whilst and after winning this year’s Junior Eurovision, Georgian Public Broadcaster “GPB” has been busy preparing their national selection contest for the adult version of the EBU contest, which was announced in early November. From the 7th of November till yesterday, soloists and bands aiming to represent the country in Ukraine could send in their submissions to the broadcaster.

Now, a day after the submission period closed, GPB has revealed the acts that are on the process to date and will try to get the ticket that will lead one of them to fly the Georgian flag in Kiev. The current line-up of this year’s Georgian national selection contest looks as it follows:

  1. Nanuka Giorgobiani
  2. Giorgi Chikovani

Last year, Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz were internally selected and through public and jury deliberation 50/50 , chose the entry they would be finally singing in Stockholm, “Midnight Gold”, which was finally arranged by well-known composer and producer Thomas G:son. Georgia came 20th in the grand final.

We hope that more details regarding the whole thing will transcend on a later but early stage, coming in due time, so stay tuned to ESC+Plus to learn more about Georgia’s intentions at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest!

About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

Adrián Valiente (Spain)
I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest several times in the last few years. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experience thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
