Tbilisi calling! Georgia’s national final 2017 running order revealed

Get ready for a marathon! Three weeks ago Georgia confirmed they will host a 25-song national final on January 20, at the Tbilisi Concert Hall.

And today GPB revealed the running order during a special presentation hosted by Natia Uznadze and Natia Mshvenieradze in the capital.

Our Georgian contributor  Rezo Mamsikashvili attended the presentation and the closed conference afterwards. From what he gathers Georgia is going big and hopes to turn its national final into a mini-Eurovision with all that it entails. We have to keep our lips sealed for the time being, but we can say this: GPB is taking this very seriously.

Giorgi Chikovani will open the national final and Davit Shanidze will close it. You can see the full running order below.
