GPB, the Georgian broadcaster responsible for the nations' participation in the Eurovision Song Contest had a positive record within the showcase heading into the 2012 edition noting that they had managed to qualify on all counts but all that changed when the track I'm a Joker performed by Anri Jokhadze failed to reach the final stage of the continental event thus bringing their perfect record to an end. Following the dismal result which had followed what critics panned to be a disappointing national selection, the broadcaster thought best to invite artists to represent the nation internally and tailor write a song for them and a matter of fact, this is exactly the method they will be using as they head to Malmö, Sweden.

As the year 2012 was coming to an end, the broadcaster made public the news that Nodi Tatishvili and Sophie Gelovani were carefully selected to represent the country in the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest but no details of the track they would be performing emerged until today noting that the songwriter will be none other than the renowned Thomas G:Son who is of course coming off a major victory at the esteemed event having co-written the track Euphoria as well as Quedate Conmingo for Sweden and Spain respectively. His results at the competition have been mixed although success has become more viable in recent years it seems. It is also worth pointing out that one of his co-writes entitled Ultraviolet is also competing in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and is set to be performed by Jessika. Stay tuned to for more news about this developing story.
