GPB has revealed that they will announce their representative for Junior Eurovision 2017 on September 8th. A professional jury panel has had the task to decide who will represent Georgia on home ground.
A few weeks ago, the Georgian broadcaster released an open call for artists aged 9-14 years in order to find who will wave the national flag in Tbilisi. The best candidates have recently faced a live audition from which a professional jury panel has selected the next Georgian representative at Junior Eurovision.
The jury panel for the live audition was made up of producer Zaza Shengelia, singer Maia Baratashvili, musician David Evgenidze; and GPB’s music editor Eliso Shengelia and voice director George Asanishvili.
Although the candidates were initially asked to send their original songs, the Georgian broadcaster has announced that the winner of the live audition will be given a song for the competition. It’s interesting to know that the one and only Giga Kukhianidze has composed almost every Georgian entry in the history of Junior Eurovision, so he is likely to be the composer of this year’s entry.
