One month ago, Tornike Kipiani won Georgian Idol and secured his ticket to Rotterdam. Now more information has emerged about his song for Eurovision 2020. “Take Me as I Am” is reportedly the song title and he will be joined by three backing singers.

Tornike featured on a report on the Georgian television, talking about his Eurovision entry.

There he revealed that his song will be titled “Take Me As I Am”, however wiwibloggs understand that this song title may not be entirely locked in just yet. This is not to be confused with Maltese star Domenique’s 2014 national final entry of the same name.

The song is described as “a mix of classic rock, electro and dubstep”. This continues Georgia’s tradition of sending a variety of styles to Eurovision. Recent Georgian entries have been in electro-pop, indie rock and ethno-jazz.

Tornike himself has written his Eurovision song, with assistance from Georgian musician and producer Aleko Berdzenishvili.

It is expected that Tornike’s Eurovision song will be released in the coming weeks.

Tornike’s team for Rotterdam

In Rotterdam, Tornike will be joined by three backing vocals: one man and two women: Aleko Berdzenishvili, Marian Shengelia and Mariko Lezhava.

Mariam Shengelia was one of the other contestants in Georgian Idol 2019. She made it to the grand final along with Tornike and placed fourth.

Mariko Lezhava may be familiar from 2017, where she was a contestant in Georgia’s epic 25-act national final. She placed sixth with her electro-pop song “Light It Up”.

Who is Tornike Kipiani?

Tornike is a 32-year-old musician and the father of three children. He returned to Georgian Idol after previously winning the 2014 edition of X Factor Georgia where his mentor was the future Georgian-Greek Cyprus Eurovision star Tamta.

Tornike has previously tried to represent Georgia at Eurovision. He competed in Georgia’s Eurovision 2017 national final, with the industrial techno song “You Are My Sunshine”.

Description of the song is great so I am curious and a bit excited even ? time will tell if that feeling will last after hearing the song. I loved their 2016 entry, by far one of the best songs of the decade so would love something similar ? Oh and they are bringing back Mariko Lezhava, that is nice. I loved her song back in 2017. Does this mean they are now grooming her for an internal selection next year? Very often we see the backing singers take front stage the following year after some Eurovision experience in the… Read more »

I hope they go in the direction of their 2011 entry (Eldrine – One More Day), one of my favourites of that year. Pretty excited to what they have to offer this time! Good luck 🙂

Georgia in ESC is a hit or a miss. No one in between.

Georgia in ESC is unfortunately a miss majority of the time. The only time they had slightly interesting acts was in 2010, 2011 and 2015.

I’m really excited for his song. Love his voice. Checked out other songs he’s done in the past. The style they’re going for seems very promising as well. Plus low key he’s hot(not that it matters but still a fact nonetheless lol).

The big positive here is that he wrote the song. So it should at least be a good fit for him. The genre mash sounds weird but interesting. Georgia is one of those countries who struggles and I always want to see succeed, so let’s hope it works out for them!

For me It was obivius from the begining , tornike is not that kind of artist to sing a song like that

In theory, it’s the right step. It would fit his voice and Georgia wouldn’t have much (possibly any) competition in that field.

To be honest he would handle rock well. I think a lot of people wrote him off but he’s a talented singer with some domestic success.
