ESC 2014: An In-Depth Review of Georgia

It has become customary for the escflashmalta.com editorial board to engage professional individuals from the music industry to assess the songs competing in the Eurovision Song Contest as presented to the European Broadcasting Union during the Heads of Delegation Meeting. Greig Watts, Joseph Zammit, Sharon Vaughn and John Scott from the United Kingdom, Malta, Sweden and the United States have been entrusted with the second semi-final, comprising of sixteen songs and set to take place on the 8th May 2014 at the B&W Hallerne in Copenhagen, Denmark. Making use of the running order and moving onto number #4, we catch up with Georgia (GPB) who will be represented by The Shin & Mariko and the song Three Minutes to Earth written by Eugen Eliu to the music of Zaza Miminoshvili.

The Shin is a Germany-based band that became famous for their creative ways of interweaving traditional Georgian music with influences from pop and world music. For their performance in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest they are joined by vocalist Mariko Ebralidze. Their Eurovision entry Three Minutes To Earth reflects this idea: "It describes the last three minutes of a long walk back to Earth, back home." Shin also means "home", so the band name is linked to the lyrics.

Mariko Ebralidze was born in 1984 in Tbilisi. She graduated from a music school, piano department, and in 2000, she was enrolled at #2 Music College named after Zakaria Paliashvili pursuing the specialty of a pop singer. In 2008, she received a bachelor's degree as a soloits and teached from the Pedagogical Institute of Music Arts. Until 2013, Mariko Ebralidze participated in several high-ranked festivals in Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Germany.

Mamuka Gaganidze, His parents said that, already at the ripe age of three, Mamuka would spend hours lost in song—he could perform nearly every popular Georgian tune on cue. Mamuka himself recalls frequently performing in front of the mirror in his childhood, imagining a full auditorium and the applause of a captive audience. At the age of six Mamuka began to study the piano and was invited to join the children’s vocal-instrumental ensemble “Nergebi” [The Saplings].

Georgia, one of the most recent nations to partake in the Eurovision Song Contest with only one apparent disappointment, that being in 2012 when Anri Jokhadze perfomed the song I'm a Joker and finishing in twelfth place in the semi-final. Their most successful result at this point in time is a 9th place finish achieved on two occasions; the first time in 2010 with the song Shine sung by Sofia Niharadze and the second time being in 2011 with the track One More Day performed by the group Eldrine. They have yet to properly trouble the scoreboard though and they hope that this entry featuring a mixture of folk and mainstream might do the trick.

Professional Critics Voice their Opinion

Rating: 60%

Greig Watts: Interesting! Different for my western ears to hear. Although I work in Eastern euorpe a lot so I am open to hearing different styles. Took a long time to get to the female vocal though which was the most interesting for me. Seems to be a song full of ad libbing guitar playing and a very unusual arrangement. I cant tell you what the chorus is at all, but it kind of goes a long nicely. Its an interesting piece, but I am not sure I would ever be able to sing it back to you as feels very experimental., but I’ll mark it higher for its difference and this could appeal to the eastern bloc

Joseph Zammit: Clearly these people don't know how to let the past go. Here we have three old people, followed by what I can assume to be a hippy groupie with a good voice, who still believe they are singing in the fields of Woodstock and chanting. Protest songs like Bob Dylan against damaging the environment....I guess. I can't really say for sure what the song is truly about since the lyrics make absolutely no sense. 'Three minutes to earth for you and for me'? What? 

Now I may be sounding harsh on them, but that's just me. Actually I rather like this song. A song from Georgia which starts with a semi Native American chant immediately struck me as interesting. The music has a nice and encouraging folk feel to it with some nice vocals and skillfull guitar playing. Also it has a kicka** bass line to boot. You know how rare it is to find a song with a great uplifting baseline nowadays? Especially in Eurovision. Its bad lyrics and its random, unfulfilling ending however leave a bit to be desired.

Sharon Vaughn: Whereas I appreciate the extremely advanced musicianship, this strikes me as way too fussy and academic to touch anyone... which is my criterion for excellence.

John Scott: An interesting blend of styles and instrumentation. But the song is a little too unfocussed for me. It's hard for the brain to latch on to any one part because there are so many different musical pieces.

Published in Editorials

Danmarks Radio, host broadcaster of the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest has just revealed the running order for the international competition taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark. Represented by Firelight and the song Coming Home, written by Richard Edwards Micallef, Malta will be opening the second semi-final on the 8th May 2014.

Prior to the announcement of the draw for the running order, Malta had never been given the opportunity to open the semi-final of such an illustrious show. At first glance, one might be shocked but personally I had a strong feeling that this could happen given the diversity of the genres that make up the first half of the second semi-final. Seventh in qualification with the bookies, Coming Home is facing a fate bestowed to the likes of Nije Ljubav Stvar, This is My Life, Run Away and Love In Rewind, all of which have successfully qualified to the final of the continental competition. 

01) Malta: Coming Home - Firelight

02) Israel: Same Heart - Mei Finegold

03) Norway: Silent Storm - Carl Espen

04) Georgia: Three Minutes to Earth - The Shin & Mariko

05) Poland: My Slowanie - Donatan & Cleo

06) Austria: Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst

07) Lithuania: Attention - Vilija Mataciunaite

08) Finland: Something Better - Softengine

09) Ireland: Heartbeat - Can-Linn ft. Kasey Smith

10) Belarus: Cheesecake - Teo

11) FYR Macedonia: To The Sky - Tijana

12) Switzerland: Hunter of Stars - Sebalter

13) Greece: Rise Up - Freaky Fortune ft. RiskyKidd

14) Slovenia: Round and Round - Tinkara Kovac

15) Romania: Miracle - Paula & Ovi

It is quite interesting to denote that those entries which opened the second semi-final have proven to be much more successful than those opening the first semi-final. In the meantime, the situation in the first semi-final is even moreso intriguing especially with the first half of the show induated with ballads, despite that they try and preserve themselves as individualistic. Favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest with odds shortening by the second, Armenia is set to open the first semi-final in a bizarre twist.

01) Armenia: You're Not Alone - Aram MP3

02) Latvia: Cake to Bake - Aarzemnieki

03) Estonia: Amazing - Tanja

04) Sweden: Undo - Sanna Nielsen

05) Iceland: No Prejudice - Pollaponk

06) Albania: One Night's Anger - Hersi

07) Russia: Shine - Tolmachevy Sisters

08) Azerbaijan: Start a Fire - Dilara Kazimova

09) Ukraine: Tick-Tock - Mariya Yaremchuk

10) Belgium: Mother - Axel Hirsoux

11) Moldova: Wild Soul - Cristina Scarlat

12) San Marino: Maybe (Forse) - Valentina Monetta

13) Portugal: Quero Ser Tua - Suzy

14) The Netherlands: Calm After the Storm - The Common Linnets

15) Montenegro: Moj Svijet - Sergej Cetkovic

16) Hungary: Running - Andras Kallay-Saunders

One has to remember that ten countries per semi-final will get through to the final show set for the 10th May 2014 at the B&W Hallerne in Copenhagen, Denmark meaning that nine nations will be left out in the cold having not been selected amongst the best that the continent has to offer. In the final, the qualifiers will join entries from Spain, France, Germany, United Kingdom and host country Denmark who have already been given an extremely late draw following a random draw.

Georgia: Act for Copenhagen Internally Chosen

In 2007, Georgia made their debut in the Eurovision Song Contest with Sopho Khalvashi and her entry Visionary Dream as chosen in a four (4) song national selection. Fortunes for the eastern country have been mixed, making the top ten (10) on two (2) occasions whilst also missing the final on another occasion, that being in 2012 with the song I’m a Joker performed by Anri Jokhadze, who in turn also happened to be the first male to represent the nation.

GPB, the public broadcaster decided to make a revelation at noon, and unveiled the name of the act that will be representing Georgia at the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Mariko Ebralidze and The Shin have been internally selected in hope of improving on last years’ result, a fifteenth (15th) place finish in the final, having just managed to get through to that phase, finishing in tenth (10th) place in the semi-final stage. The song written by renowned songwriter, Thomas G:Son bore the name Waterfall and was performed by Sopho & Nodi. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more details as they become available.

Earlier this evening, all of the delegations participating in this years' edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest were given a warm welcome during the Opening Party. Anastasiya Petryk, winner of last years' international showcase was a special guest during the event and following her performance, aided the hosts with the running order. Two countries were selected randomly as wildcards with the right to select their own place in the draw. The lucky countries were Georgia who selected to perform in slot number #9 and the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia who decided on slot number #5, an uncanny choice.

Malta is returning to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest following a two year absence and Gaia Cauchi looked stunning during the ceremony in a beautiful red dress with a huge black bow on her head. It is important to denote that the young female vocalist is accompanied by songwriter and vocal coach, Gillian Attard as well as composer Elton Zarb and Head of Delegation, Anna Dalli. The Start, a magnificient ballad is one of the favourites to win and we hope that the late running order which Gaia randomly selected will reflect the performance on the night. It was a surprise to see the Mediterranean country return to the prestigious music event which is being organised in the city of Kiev. The government of Ukraine is working hard to ensure that the event is a major success and prove to the members of the European Broadcasting Union that the event is here to stay.

01. Sweden: Det är dit vi ska - Elias

02. Azerbaijan: Me and My Guitar - Rustam Karimov

03. Armenia: Choco Factory - Monika

04. San Marino: O-o-O Sole Intorno a Me - Michele Perniola

05. FYR Macedonia: Ohrid i Muzika - Barbara Papovic

06. Ukraine: We Are One - Sofia Tarasova

07. Belarus: Poy so Mnoy - Ilya Volkov

08. Moldova: Cum Să Fim - Rafael Bobeica

09. Georgia: Give Me Your Smile - The Smile Shop

10. The Netherlands: Double Me - Mylene and Roseanne

11. Malta: The Start - Gaia Cauchi

12. Russia: Mechtay - Dayana Kirillova

This years' edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, is being staged in Kiev, Ukraine and will be aired in each of the twelve (12) participating countries. Malta will be broadcasting the competition on Television Malta 2 (TVM 2) as it kicks off at 19:00 CET. This is the first time that a major event is being shown on the secondary television station but it had to be the case due to the fact that the eight o'clock news bulletin, the main one could not be moved in any other way. The spokesperson on the night of the final will be none other than Maxine Pace, a two time former Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest finalists. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.

Gaia Cauchi, Malta's representative at the 2013 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest following an internal selection by the Public Broadcasting Services will be joined by another eleven artists at the event following confirmation that twelve (12) countries will participate within the annual competition. The last time that Malta took part was back in 2010 when Nicole Azzopardi had honoured the nation with her entry Knock Knock!….Boom! Boom! which managed just under forty points to finish in a penultimate position.

Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Netherlands, Russia, Sweden and Ukraine are returning countries from last years' edition of the international spectacle whilst Malta and the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia are returning following an extended break. It is expected that Israel will build on last years' participation as the eleventh country with the possibility of another returning country in the form of Spain or a debut nation such as San Marino putting their hat into the ring. On Monday, the Steering Group of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest met in Kiev, Ukraine in order to discuss the way forward with regards to the event. 

Chairperson Ekaterina Orlova stated that 'their attention to detail is incredible' adding that they 'have managed to combine the element of fun and high-tech wizardry'. A  number of ideas have also been actualised including the stage design, the logo, the fact that the top three will all receive prizes, rehearsal schedules, running order plans as well as the programme which the artists will undertake to tour the country accordingly. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com as we follow the Junior Eurovision Song Contest closely following Malta's return to the competition.

Ryan Dolan was selected to represent Ireland at this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with the track Only Love Survives which he co-wrote alongside Wez Devine. Unfortunately, the track was not appreciated by the juries and the public on the night of the final mustering only five (5) points and finishing in last place, the second time that the nation had to endure such a fate in recent years, noting this also happened in 2007 when Dervish took to the stage with the track They Can't Stop The Spring. Despite the disappointment at the Pan-European competition, Ryan Dolan has released his debut album entitled Frequency through digital media store, iTunes. The male vocalist had a chat with the Radio International team about the whole experience.

Thomas G:Son, is quickly becoming a veteran of the Eurovision Song Contest noting that he is involved in a number of entries competing in selections all over the continent. He was also one of the co-writers behind the winning entry of the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, that being Euphoria performed by Loreen. GPB, the broadcaster in Georgia commissioned the songwriter to pen an entry and alongside the stylings of Erik Bernholm, he came up with the ballad Waterfall which was typically Eurovision by numbers according to fans. The performance, remiscent of the Ell & Nikki performance did not prove to be as successful as thought of with Sopho and Nodi only managing to qualify in tenth place before reaching a mid-table finish for the country making it the worst result for the nation when competing in the final. Both the songwriter and the performers were interviewed by the team of Radio International.

Elitsa Todorova & Stoyan Yankoulov represented Bulgaria for the very first time back in 2007 achieving fifth place at the Eurovision Song Contest with their entry Voda (Water). BNT, the broadcaster responsible for the participation of Bulgaria have been trying to find a solution for the nation to get through to the final of the Pan-European event for the second time noting that they have come extremely close in recent years, finishing eleventh and twelfth in the semi-final round. This year, the renowned duo who had brought them success took to the stage once more with the song Samo Shampioni managing to rack up forty-five points, the same amount of last year but finishing twelfth place failing to get through because of the lack of support from the juries who awarded them last place. The public would have put them through in sixth place. They spoke to the team of Radio International about their previous experience and how they were looking at this years' participation.

The final interview of the week is with the lead singer of the group, Koza Mostra. Illias has been noted for his charm and good looks by several fans of the Eurovision Song Contest. As a matter of fact, Greece is currently in turmoil when it comes to their state broadcaster but despite this, expectations for the nation within the competition will always remain high. Koza Mostra won the right to represent the Hellenic nation by virtue of getting through a national selection process organised by ERT and MAD Television. This was the first time that such a collaboration took place making the event a huge success, drawing huge crowds as guests included Helena Paparizou, Dima Bilan, Alexander Rybak and Marija Serifovic amongst others. This interview focuses on the pressure of one representing Greece. The song which represented Greece, and reached a top ten position at the end of the evening bore the name Alcohol Is Free
