As we previously reported Georgia Idol will be the means for selecting Georgia’s representative for Tel Aviv. Preparations are underway in Georgia for a debut of this edition for the series for January 5th.
On the jury of the show are:
- Stephane Mgebrishvili (Eurovision Georgia 2009)
- Natia Todua (Winner of The Voice Germany)
- Tinatin Berdzenishvili (Director of Media at GPB)
- Zaza Shengelia (CEO of Bravo Records)
Fans may remember Natia Todua, who also competed in Germany’s national selection for Eurovision for Lisbon with her entry, ‘My Own Way’.
Two Idol winners have previously gone on to represent Georgia at Eurovision. Nodiko Tatishvili (2013, “Waterfall” with Sopho Gelovani) and Nina Sublatti (2015, “Warrior”).
Georgia is trying to find its way back to the grand finals at Eurovision for the first time since 2016 when Nika Kocharov & Young Georgian Lolitaz finished 20th in Stockholm.
