Georgia – Georgian Idol – Final – 19:00 CET
After six weeks of live shows from Tbilisi, the final of Georgian Idol takes place this evening in the nations capital.
Four artists have made it through to the final and each will be performing one song, the song that they hope to represent Georgia with at Eurovision 2019. The songs that the artists will perform were selected by the singers themselves from a shortlist of entries that were submitted to the Georgian national broadcaster.
The performers and their songs are:
- Liza Kalandadze – Sevdisperi Zgva
- Oto Nemsadze – Sul Tsin Iare
- Giorgi Nakashidze – Sul Tsin Iare
- Giorgi Pruidze – Me Mjera
The winner of Georgian Idol will be decided entirely by public voting. Georgian Idol has been using both SMS as well as Facebook Messenger voting.
