Back in February, as Eurovision Super Saturday engulfed the Eurosphere, wiwibloggers Deban Aderemi and Rezo Mamsikashvili were making waves in the Republic of Georgia.

That’s right! The Georgian State Broadcaster invited wiwibloggs to feature in Communicator – a late night TV show devoted to popular culture and hosted by Vakho Khvichia. During the 20-minute chat, they talked about all things Eurovision, and Geogia’s participation at the contest. They also talk about Deban’s recent music collaboration with JESC star Lizi Pop.

You can watch the full interview below.

Lizipop’s music collaboration with Deban below.

Whilst in Georgia, we recorded interviews with many Eurovision stars including Sofia Nizharadze, Nodi Tatishivli, Lizi Pop, Nika Kocharov and The Virus. Stay tuned to check ’em out!

When Lizi is old enough she needs to represent Georgia in Eurovision! (Maybe Deban can be a background singer!! 😉

Robyn – Aram was put as number-one in the semi while Armenia was number-one in the betting odds in 2014. And this was when Denmark was hosting, so I definitely wouldn’t be surprised if we did this to Russia. It fits well as a starting song too.

The Czech Republic will close semi final 1. By placing them there, they have a greater chance of qualifying- which the EBU would want, as Gabriela deserves to qualify with a song ranked well by nearly all fans in their various top 43s, and if she doesn’t, the Czech Republic may withdraw. Similarly, Poli will be given a memorable position in semi final 2

@Loo That would be amazing for Croatia! They would be surrounded with horrid songs.

Out of interest, I looked up the opening songs for each semi-final since 2013, along with their eventual placing: 2013 Natália Kelly – “Shine” (14) PeR – “Here We Go” (17) 2014 Aram MP3 – “Not Alone” (4) Firelight – “Coming Home” (9) 2015 Eduard Romanyuta – “I Want Your Love” (11) Monika & Vaidas – “This Time” (7) What do they have in common? They’re all upbeat songs, no doubt selected as a fun show opener. With the sole exception of Armenia 2014, they were not stand-out favourites. The big favourites tend to be placed later in the show.… Read more »

@Robyn Gallagher “never open with the strongest act”

What about Armenia in Semi Final 1 2014? They were the bookies favourite like Russia and an ex-Soviet country in a year hosted by a Scandinavian. It is possible.

Switch Russia with Croatia and then we actually have pretty good running order in the semi finals, even though it’s fake

Hi wiwibloggs, when are you going to start reviewing the 43 songs? I can’t wait, please tell me when!!!!

That running order is so obviously fake! They’d never open semi 1 with Russia – they’re not going to put the strongest act on first. More likely Sergey will perform nearer to the end of the first half, making the audience wait as long as possible. A song like Finland’s, however, seems like a perfect opening act.

According to the Swedish wikipedia, the running orders for the semi finals is here! This is most likely fake, but it will probably look something like this 😛
