As reported earlier, the final of Sakartvelos Varksvlavi (Georgian Idol) will, at the same time, serve as the national final for the Eurovision Song Contest!
Four contestants are still in the race: Giorgi Nakashidze, Giorgi Pruidze, Liza Kalandadze and Oto Nemsadze.
These candidates have all chosen a song, written by Levan Basharuli, Roma Giorgadze and Tamar Babilua.
You can read a bit more about these songwriters’ backgrounds here.
All songs are in the Georgian language, three songs in total so two candidates have chosen the same song: Giorgi Nakashidze and Oto Nemsadze will both be singing ‘Sul tsin iare’.
These are the matches (the translation of the song title in brackets):
- Giorgi Nakashidze – Sul tsin iare (Go Ahead)
- Giorgi Pruidze – Me mjera (I Believe)
- Liza Kalandadze – Sevdisperi zgva (Seaside)
- Oto Nemsadze – Sul tsin iare (Go Ahead)
