It’s the process for selecting the Georgian representative for Eurovision 2020. And now things are getting very real on Georgian Idol, as the eliminations are coming thick and fast.

Following the first live show, Merab Amzoevi became the first act eliminated. Now the second act to fall is Liza Shengelia. She was in the bottom two alongside Anri Guchmanidze, while Tornike Kipiani led the game for the second show in a row. Tornike topped the results with 19.13% of the 101,408 votes.

The public is able to vote for their favourite via both telephone voting as well as through the Facebook Messenger app. The remaining nine face more performances and more eliminations before the grand final on 31 December. Take a look at the performances from second live show below.

Unlike the last season of Georgian Idol, which selected both the artist and the song for Eurovision, this year’s series will only select the artist. The future winner of Georgian Idol will then have their Eurovision song internally selected.

It seems they love shouting dudes in Georgia. The problem is, I don’t think there are many available songs with esc appeal for shouting dudes.

I do like me some musical theatre (although I will say that while Breakfast at Tiffany’s was, eventually, turned into a musical, she was kinda stretching a bit). I admire anyone with the vocal capacity to take on Heaven on Their Minds, so that grabs my attention a bit. (And some ESC connections there, too: the very direct one that Lord Andrew wrote the British entry a decade ago, and the bigger stretch that the role of Judas was recently played by the great Tim Minchin, who is a close friend of and was once covered by Kate Miller-Heidke!)
