Poll: Who should win Georgia’s national final for Eurovision 2017?

In 2015 Nina Sublatti battled a billowing cloud of smoke. In 2016 Nika Kocharov threw down psychedelic realness. And both of them took Georgia to the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Now Georgia’s national broadcaster GPB is keen to make sure they can make the final for a third year in a row. Clearly eager to gage public reaction to their songs, they released the names of the 28 Eurovision 2017 hopefuls last week. And on December 13 they released the actual songs, sending our comments section into overdrive as fans reacted to the numbers, using adjectives from “interesting” to “fun” to “tragic”. But don’t worry: Regardless of the ultimate result, we’re sure Georgia will force a revamp of the winning song.

Ancho Dolidze, Natia Bidzinashvili and Ani Kekua have left the contest. But we’re still left with a very long playlist of songs. GPB hasn’t made their decision on who will compete in the national final, so this is your chance to let YOUR voice be heard and potentially influence the set list. At the final itself, the winner will be determined by a 60% jury, 40% televote split. Yes, Georgia wants to professionalize!
