Last month Georgia‘s television news revealed that Tornike Kipiani would sing a song called “Take Me As I Am” at Eurovision. Now the broadcaster has shared more about the song, with a behind-the-scenes look at Tornike in the recording studio.

The news clip shows Tornike hard at work in the studio, laying down vocal tracks for his Eurovision 2020 entry.

A few lyrics from the song can be heard, including the notable line where Tornike asks: “How do you want me to talk like an Englishman?”

Tornike sings with attitude, in his trademark loud, strong rock voice. He draws out the final syllable of the line into a long “maaaaaaan”.

He can also be singing “I love you” in different European languages. As well as English, there’s “ti amo” (Italian), te quiero (Spanish) and “ich liebe dich” (German). Wiwibloggs understands there will be a French “je t’aime” in there as well.

There’s also a hint of the music behind the song. The song was previously described as “a mix of classic rock, electro and dubstep” and it does indeed seem to have this sound.

Over this music, Tornike can be heard singing the title line “Take me as I am”, then “No, you don’t love me”.

Finished in the studio

The news report follows an Instagram update Tornike made last week. He shared a photo of himself in the recording studio, with the caption “Just finished! Can’t wait to share it with you all”.

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

In December, Tornike won Georgian Idol, which also meant he would be Georgia’s act for Eurovision 2020.

What do you think? Are you excited to hear the full version of “Take Me As I Am”? Tell us your thoughts below!

It sounds interesting, but really it’s a bit early to judge, especially since what we are hearing is not even a demo.

Maybe my favorite.
Eurovision lacks bold heavy music so much.
it’s time to dilute this pile of rubbish of billi eilish and ariana grande songs.

This could be either very special and unique or terrible. It seems like Georgia is at least taking risks and making something they think is cool. Their entries are usually a hit or miss, but I can really respect their boldness and flair.

“How do you want me to talk like an Englishman?” can we make this a meme all ready?! I can not take this seriously what so ever

Hearing the bits with the backing tracks has me hopeful. I’m expecting something similar to Minus One for Cyprus in 2016, and that managed to qualify and be a modest fan favorite. Tornike is loud and has a rock edge, but I don’t think this track will be anything close to Oto’s last year. It’s something different for Georgia, and hopefully they’ll be rewarded for giving us an atypical Eurovision song delivered by a powerful vocalist. You would hope one of these years that would be appreciated, right?

I am desperate to know what sort of Englishman the person wants him to talk like. I really hope it’s a Geordie or a Brummie, I would like to see some impressions incorporated into the song.

I think it would be better to wait fo a finnished product and THEN judge the song. I think the little snippet with music sounded promising.

It sounds… different. I’d say it’s a good sign, being different is better than being mediocre. And it’s cool to have a rock entry in the line-up, Georgia took the same risk in 2016 and it paid off.

All I can say is that I am very impressed with Robyn with her reporting of Romania and Georgia. Is this a super woman with unknown language skills? Kudos to Robyn, please 🙂

It used to get me hyped too, as per the description, but I do not like what I hear. Where are the times of 2010? Even last year I was rooting big time for Georgia. Good song, brillian interpretation, amazing stanging. Georgia, I want you to do well xx But this may not be the year, sadly.

I’m excited for this song… I love his voice and the snippets sound so promising. Can’t wait to hear the full song(hopefully soon). I love rock/edm music so this seems like it will be my type of song.

BleuKnaveXD236

Yes!!! And I have watched other songs he’s covered/sung in the past… he does rock well imo. I suggest checking out his cover of “I just can’t get you outta my head” so good. But like I said I love rock/edm music so I’m biased I suppose. Anyways just excited about them sending a song that seems to fit him and not trying to make a “eurovision song” as you said.
