Georgia: Sopho and Nodiko Internally Selected

GPB, the Georgian broadcaster responsible for the nations' participation in the Eurovision Song Contest has revealed a couple of hours ago that their representatives will be none other than Sopho Gelovani and Nodiko Tatishvili, marking the inaugural occasion of a duet from the nation which has only been around for five editions thus far. The internal selection was something that had been thought for quite some time after the disappointment endured with Anri Jokhadze, the first male entrant for the country whose entry I'm a Joker could only conjure thirty six points in total and thus fourteenth place in the semi-final out of eighteen in total. One of the most interesting tidbits is surely the fact that for the fourth year, the country is sending a female vocalist whose name is Sopho although they are all different people in the music industry.

At this point in time, the best result for Georgia at the Eurovision Song Contest has been a ninth place achieved on two occasions, the first time in 2010 with Sopho Nizharadze and her entry Shine as well as in 2011 with the group Eldrine who performed the track One More Day. GPB, the Georgian broadcaster has not yet made any revelations with regards to the song which they will ultimately be performing in the Eurovision Song Contest set to take place in Malmo, Sweden but it is expected that more news is given to the public in a couple of weeks time. The Eastern country has garnered a respectable amount of votes from non-neighbouring countries and that shows the quality of entries that it has presented in the continental competition. Their track earlier this year was not up to scratch and the result showed at the end. Stay tuned to for more of the latest news whilst wishing you a very Happy New Year.
