Meet Circus Mircus, Georgia representatives in Eurovision 2022

This year Georgia has chosen Circus Mircus as its representatives on Eurovision 2022 that will take place in Turin next May with the song “Lock Me In”. But who are Circus Mircus? In this article you will have the opportunity to know more about Georgia’s band for Eurovision 2022.

About Circus Mircus

Circus Mircus is a band created in 2020 in Georgia by three former students of the circus academy in Tbilisi. They themselves claim that they were the least talented of the whole circus group and that is why they became friends. Not considering themselves good enough for the circus, they decided to try their luck in the world of music. Their identity remains a mystery as, according to their announcement, the members of the group would be revealed to the public in stages through “dosed” announcements, but we still don’t know everything about them.

According to themselves, “Circus Mircus” is a movement that brings together dozens of professionals from different fields to create an unprecedented audiovisual experience. Their philosophy lies in the absolute rejection of traditional musical frameworks in which a singer or band can’t step outside a specific musical genre. That is why they define their sound as “unique” as it encompasses a variety of genres, intricately reflecting the inner world and life experience of each member of the band. Moreover, for them the visual aspect is as important as the sound.

They also said in an interview published on their social media that they intend to win the crystal microphone next May in Turin and that, in case of victory, they hope to receive one million of the Georgian Currency from the Georgian state, just like their Olympic champions.

Georgia made its debut at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 in Helsinki with Sopho Khalvashi and her song Visionary Dream, which came 12th with 97 points. Since then, the Caucasian country has participated in every edition of the festival except in 2009, when “We Don’t Wanna Put In”, the song chosen to be performed by the group Stephane & 3G, was disqualified by the EBU for containing political lyrics against Vladimir Putin.

Lyrics

Show me what you got
On the counter
From the ground up now
Here we come and we all know
Mama said not to show what you are
Step it up now
Get it done now
I hate what you got
Shoot it to the stars
To the top now
Across the moon and down
We are here ‘til we blow up
Tryin’ hard will not get you really far
Mix it up now
It’s alright, pal (Circus Mircus)

Take me to the space craft, take me to dance club
Take me to the space craft, take me to dance club
Take me to the space craft, takе me to dance club
Take mе to the space craft, take me to dance club
Now, right now, right now, right now
Take me to the space craft, take me to dance club
Take me to the space craft, take me to dance club
Take me to the space craft, take me to dance club
Take me to the space craft, take me to dance club
Take me to the space craft, take me to dance club
Now, right now, right now, right now
Take me to the space craft, take me to dance club

Lock me up, lock me down
Lock me in, lock me out
Lock me sideways
Lock me up, lock me down
Lock me in, lock me out
Lock me sideways
(Circus Mircus)

Make it ‘til I break, and I never could take it
Make it ‘til I break, and I never could take it
Make it ‘til I break, and I never could take it
Make it ‘til I break, and I never could take it
Now, right now, right now, right now
Make it ‘til I break, and I never could take it

Lock me up, lock me down
Lock me in, lock me out
Lock me sideways
Lock me up, lock me down
Lock me in, lock me out
Lock me sideways
Lock me up (Up), lock me down (Down)
Lock me in (In), lock me out (Out)
Lock me sideways
Lock me up (Up), lock me down (Down)
Lock me in (In), lock me out (Out)
Lock me sideways
(Circus Mircus)
