Levina has appeared on GPB the Georgian national broadcaster today as she begins a six nation promotional tour across Europe. The singer will spend today and tomorrow in Georgia before she travels to the United Kingdom for her first appearance at a Eurovision Preview event. She will end her international promotional tour in FYR Macedonia.

Levina was chosen by the German public to represent her country in Kyiv in early February, and her rendition of “Perfect Life” prevailed in the superfinal over her other entry, “Wildfire”. The song received an impressive 69% of the votes. It remains to be seen whether the song will be found guilty of plagiarism, or what action would be taken in the event of this.
“Perfect Life” is being revamped ahead of the contest in Kyiv. To date a total of ten countries have revamped their songs for this years contest in Kyiv, Ukraine. The release of the Eurovision version of “Perfect Life”, will be followed by the release of Levina’s debut album on April 28.
