“Warrior” may be still stucked in your mind, but the time has come for Georgia to start a new Eurovision journey. Earlier today, GBP (Georgian Public Broadcast) announced that they will unveil Nina Sublatti’s successor tomorrow. The identity of their Eurovision 2016 representives will be revealed during a special press conference at 9.00 CET.
After last year’s national final, the Caucasus nation are returning to an internal selection. This is despite Nina Sublatti giving them their best result since 2011, finishing just two points off the top ten.
The big question now is who should sing for Georgia. In our Wednesday Wishlist series we recommended BERA:
Bera Ivanishvili, or just BERA, is a Georgian musician born in Paris. The son of Georgia’s richest person according to Forbes, he was classically trained at the age of four and plays piano, drums and violin. Nowadays, he is one of the country’s biggest stars and he parties alongside the likes of Justin Bieber and the Jenner sisters. Next autumn he will release his second album, but for now here’s his song “Calypso Lover”.
Other favourites of ours include Katie Melua, Tamta, Nini Tsnobiladze and The BearFox. Who would you like to see?
