Poll results: Tako Gachechiladze should win Georgia’s national final

20

Georgia are set to host their biggest ever national final on January 20. And the focus on size continues in our poll. Back in December we asked you who should win Georgia’s national final. The results are in and, after counting a staggering 19,876 votes, we can now reveal that Tako Gachechiladze is your favourite to win the contest with her song “Keep The Faith”. Next stop Eurovision 2017 in Ukraine?

Tako previously won Georgia’s national final in 2009, as part of the group Stefane & 3G.

The group never got to Eurovision though, after their song “I Don’t Want To Put In” was disqualified for political content.

Now Tako is back and she’s on top of the polls once again. She received 2,859 votes (or 14% of the total), putting her convincingly in first place. Our Wiwi Jury might have put her in the middle of the pack, but y’all see her as a frontrunner ahead of the Friday showdown.

The Mins finished in second place with their song “Crime”, receiving 2,079 votes — around 11% of the total.

The group have picked up support elsewhere too, including international A-lister Moby and Nina Sublatti. The band said in our interview that they want to use Eurovision to “spread our message to be guardians”.

If our votes have their way, they might just get the chance!

Third place in the poll goes to Maliibu and her song “We Live Once”.

This pink-haired diva preaches empowerment and voters are flocking to her side. She received 1,804 votes or 9% of all those cast.

She also placed just outside the top five with our Wiwi Jury. Could she be a contender on Friday night?
