Tornike Kipiani was born 11 December 1987 in Tbilisi, Georgia. He is a musician, father of 3 children and a professional architect.
When he founded his own band at age 19, he hadn’t even consider becoming a vocalist. While Tornike and his bandmates were still looking for a singer to fill that vacant spot, he stepped in temporarily, and the rest is history.
In 2014, Tornike won the first season of X Factor Georgia, where his mentor was the future Georgian-Greek Cyprus Eurovision star, Tamta.
In 2017, Tornike tried to represent Georgia at the Eurovision Song Contest with the industrial techno song, You Are My Sunshine, but was unsuccessful.
In 2019, he returned to Georgian Idol and won the contest along with the chance to represent his nation at Eurovision.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and the contest’s organisers (NPO, NOS and AVROTROS) announced last january a final decision regarding the scenario that will ensure the health and safety of all people that will be involved in the Eurovision Song Contest next May in Rotterdam. From all the initial four scenarios they considered at the beginning, the organisers have decided to implement ‘Scenario B’.
The health safety and protocols that will be followed match with the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment guidelines for similar large-scale events such as sports competitions.
