Just moments ago The Shin and Mariko presented their song ‘Three Minutes to Earth’ to the public. Back on 4 Feburary, Georgia Public Broadcasting bypassed a national selection contest and internally selected the group to sing at Eurovision 2014. The Shin band member Zaza Miminoshvili composed the song, and Eugen Eliu wrote the lyrics.
The Shin—not to be confused with The Shins—are known for giving traditional Georgian music a modern flair. GPB enlisted songstress Mariko to add a bit of estrogen to the all-male group.

Georgia will be competing in the second semi-final drawn in the first half on 8 May.
