No need to call the fire brigade, because “Firefighter” Nutsa Buzaladze is on the case.

After being announced as Georgia’s Eurovision 2024 representative in January, Nutsa has now released her entry for the contest.

Nutsa Buzaladze – “Firefighter” (Georgia Eurovision 2024)

Nutsa conveys a powerful message in the song, expressing a metaphorical fight against various negative aspects like wars, envy, and hate. The recurring theme of “I will save this love” reflects her kindness towards others and the desire to spread that love amid challenging times. The impactful nature of the video is emphasized, portraying a strong and intense atmosphere.

The song “Firefighter” is composed and written by Darko Dimitrov and Ada Satka. Zaza Orashvili directed the music video, featuring Shako Popiashvili as art director, choreography by Luigi Alloca, and costume design by Lasha Jokhadze and Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili. The music video was directed by Nestan Sinjikashvili and Giorgi Dekanoidze.

About Nutsa 

At the end of 2016, the rising star sat down with wiwiblogger Rezo Mamsikashvili in Tbilisi at Cafe Lounge Claude Monet, where they shared coffee, laughs and a whole lot of love. By then she’d already won the New Wave music festival, competed on The Voice of Turkey (O Ses Türkiye) and dazzled on Georgia’s Got TalentYour Face Sounds Familiar and Dancing with the Stars.

Her success on The Voice — and her partnership with mentor and Eurovision 2009 singer Hadise — made her a recognisable figure on the streets of Turkey.

“When I was walking down the street after that contest they were like, ‘Oh this is Nutsa!’”

“Now [Hadise and I] have a friendship. She is such an amazing person. I’m really happy that I know her, because she’s such a star.” 

Nutsa’s ambitions have only grown since then. She’s got a growing fan base in the United States thanks to her spin on American Idol‘s 2023 season.  

She auditioned with Patti LaBelle’s “Lady Marmalade.” The judges were impressed by her ability to sing and dance at the same time, but Katy Perry wanted to focus on Nutsa’s gorgeous voice.

Nutsa then performed Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love of All,” which led to three yes votes from Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie.

This is a bit boring to dance. Same moves, no real emotions. Sorry.

Surprised at this song to be honest. It’s the same formula that we’re starting to see very often. A polished pop song sung by a pretty girl, the production is great, but the song is soul-less and sounds similar to many other songs.
This slots nicely in to the box that contains the songs from Luxembourg, Cyprus & Malta.

I don’t dislike the song but I’m surprised that it’s a Georgian entry. Usually, they are the ones for creativity and experimentation. That’s rather unadventurous by their standards.

According to me the song and performance are extremly basic, soulless and over produced . Like a mix of a thousand songs you already heard and forgotten. Let’s hope they at least can put on a show.

It’s good, though nothing groundbreaking. It’s like they had a checklist: strong semi ethnic beat? Check. Dance break? Check. High note being shouted as a finale to the song? Check. Barely clothed diva with her equally sparsely clothed dancers? We’ll check this one in May.
Nothing really wrong with it and I wouldn’t be surprised if it qualified, but there are other songs I’m more excited to hear.

It’s a nice song, a bit bland and not really original but if well executed and with a good staging it could be impactful, it builds nicely maybe too slowly but the end of the song is powerful. It has competition though, as there are others ethno female bops in the competition, creativity for the staging will be the key to stand out.
Good luck Nutsa!

First of all, this song is very loud. It is not exactly a pleasure to listen to,similar to last year. The power of the voice and the wall of production si just overwhelming. Take a step back and relax, Georgia. You have a whole lot of passion, I got it. You can make better use of that.

Ohh thank you Nutsa and songwriters! Georgia never lets me down; Easily the most underrated Eurovision participant every year, in my opinion. 🙂
Really dramatic clash harmonies, I love hearing that. This is a modern thumping production that should play well live. Plus, there are those messages in the lyrics to Europe. For instance, in V1: “Did we build empires just to watch them burn?” And in the Pre-Chorus: “The ceiling is falling, the windows are burning.” Yeah, we get the point. Pure drama meets slick choreography.

Every time Georgia plays authentic it stays in SF. This time they want to qualify finally, that’s why they decided to be generic.

Finally, Georgia has a chance of qualifying for the final. It’s not bad, and it’s nothing too exciting either.

I struggle to grasp the beat, plus her extensive vocals in any part of the song make it a bit loud.

It’s good, though, contemporary, a bit generic, but also energetic.

It’s like a bit of Chanel and Noa Kirel (graduates of the Foureira School of Eurovision haha), with a bit of ethnic elements.

Overall, well done, Georgia!

Scream girl scream more. Add few more screamers to the background. And add some more drums. And there still must be an instrument and sound not used in this song. Go for it. Mooooorrrrreeee. More drama, more sounds, more instruments. More is always better. Add thunder sounds throughout the whole song!!! Yeah. Non qualifying for this aggressive noise.

The song is ok. Definitely not a winning material not even top-10 maybe but should be in the final. The only thing I don’t understand is what Georgia should do always meet the expectations of all the time complaining Eurofans. Every time country is brining something authentic or experimental, it stays in the SF. This time Georgia decided to play safe, brings the song that is pretty generic but usually does well among fans but now fans are blaming Georgia for being not original enough, though if the same song was presented by Spain, Cyprus or Greece, or Serbia (cheap… Read more »

hahahaha, YAS Queen.

For me the best Georgian ever 2016: Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz.

I loved the path they took aside of the road many times.
Also with: Circus Mircus and their song “Lock Me In

Congrats Georgia and all the best of luck.

Lolitaz were really great and juries appreciated them. If not them, we wouldn’t have Georgia in the final that year, too. Another good example why there must be juries, and the decision to get rid of them in the sf is a lame idea.

Hmm. Towards the end it gets better because the sound builds and builds but for the first two minutes I thought it’s basically on Cyprus’s level of blandness. The last part does elevate it from Cyprus for me, it’s good enough to give it another chance. Georgia is in a semi final half where every country has a real chance of making the final, maybe minus San Marino, so the performance will have to be fantastic to pull through.

Not for me at all. I miss them being alternstive, even if I know that being alternative and edgy hasn’t led to a Georgian qualification since 2016 (one of my favourite ESC songs ever) and that Fire fighter has qualification chances.

It’s a filler. Neither great nor bad. It is the type of filler that still keeps the viewers engaged to the screen in hopes something will climax at some point. In other words it is not a toilet break. But viewers will stay underwhelmed as the climax never happens…and the song might become quite forgettable.

Not a bad effort.
However, we now have a lot similar entries – Italy, Cyprus, Poland, Albania, Greece, Malta, Luxembourg, Moldova.
They are all beginning to merge into one and so unfortunately most of them are going to suffer in terms of getting sufficient support

It is hard to argue that they are very different from one another – all have modern beats, some have slightly more ethnic flavour than others, but they are all in the “pop” sphere, all young females (apologies if I have got the gender incorrect). You cannot argue they are in different genres – they are not rock, rap, opera, techno, the list of possibilities goes on and on. I would think the general public are likely to put them in a particular bracket and consider them to be “same-y”

Shouty that is. More often than not Balkan and Caucasus entries are loud and over the top, it’s the temperament that blends into their music. A bit too loud and “filled” with instruments and vocals, for my taste. Not bad though. Should qualify.

Most of this song is very standard, a Eurovision bop by numbers. There are some hints of Georgia, but there are too few of them during most of the song. In the last minute she finally gets my attention. And I hope that this time they will take some of the choreo on stage with them.
Overall, it’s…. OK. I think it has a decent chance of qualifying, which is basically what Georgia should be aiming for I guess.

Its a fine enough song. My problem with Georgia is that they always try to hard, always throwing in to much in their songs and not much of it sticks. A bit of this, a bit of that. It becomes to messy, all over the place. Of course you can make entries that have everything in them but you also need the heart and creativity to not make it to much. She can sing but it’s to technical.

have a masterclass/workshop by the JESC production team, bring some of that top form from there to ESC entries for next year, more georgian language, more quirky entries, fun stagings

It’s a major step up from previous Georgian entries. Then again, that’s not hard to achieve.

This won’t make a huge impact on the competition as a whole. It might qualify if the staging and vocals are good. I had higher hopes for Nusta!
