Mariam Bigvava to represent Georgia at Junior Eurovision 2022

This has been decided by the Ranina 2022 jury during the grand final of the youth contest held tonight

The 20th edition of Junior Eurovision is already starting to take shape, and Georgia presents the first artist who will be part of the contest. Mariam Bigvava will represent Georgia at the upcoming Junior Eurovision Song Contest on 11 December at the Karen Demirchyan Complex in Yerevan, Armenia.

The song with which the young artist will participate on the Junior Eurovision stage will be announced soon, as the GBP will help her in the songwriting process together with a great team of professionals.

The decision was made by a panel of jurors who evaluated 4 different categories: voice, acting, artistry and collaboration. In the end, Mariam Bigvava the Georgian jury has won, while Oto Bazerashvili, Vache Ghviniashvil and Nikoloz Kharati have missed out on representing their country at Junior Eurovision 2022.

GEORGIA AT THE JUNIOR EUROVISION SONG CONTEST

Georgia made its debut at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007, just a few months after making its debut in its adult counterpart. This first entry by Mari Romelashvili and her pop-folk song Odelia Ranuni, which took a fantastic fourth place, laid the foundation for what is probably the best run of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest that continues to this day, with 3 wins and 2 second places.

The country’s first gold medal came just one year after first stepping on the festival stage, with the musical trio Bzikebi and their song Bzz… in 2008, sung entirely in the imaginary language. Despite this victory and the one that would come a few years later with the group Candy and the song Candy Music, it would not be until 2017 and after Mariam Mamadashvilli ‘s triumph at the 2016 festival that Georgia would be in charge of organising an edition of Junior Eurovision.

Niko Kajaia represented the Caucasian country at the last Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Paris with the song Let’s Count The Smiles, a Parisian-style song reminiscent of jazz with a French twist. With her cheerful and colourful performance she managed to win over a large part of the European audience, as she achieved a 4th place with 163 points.

This edition will mark the country’s 16th participation in the competition. Will they manage to beat Niko Kajaia’s magnificent fourth place in Paris during the last edition?
