Georgia: Georgian Idol finalists selected- Tornike’s fifth live sequel

The semifinal of Georgian Idol, through which as it is known for the second consecutive year the representative of Georgia in the Eurovision Song Contest will be selected was held on December 21st. Four contestants are left in the talent show, with Tornike Kipiani,the absolute favorite to win the first place for the fifth consecutive time!

The six contestants who continue on Georgian Idol after last week’s fourth Live, performed live once again in front of the television audience, voting for the candidate of their choice, by phone and facebook messenger.

The two contestants who got the lowest percentage of the vote were Davit Rusadze and Mariam Gogiberidze, with the first to leave.

At the sixth Georgian Idol Live Show, the candidates were asked to perform worldwide hits on a duet with participants of last year’s Georgian Idol. Below you can see their perfomances:

1.) Tornike Kipiani –  Breathe with Liza Kalandadze – 31.88%

2.) Barbara Samkharadze –  Juice with Grigol Kipshidze – 22.42%

3.) Tamar Kakalashvili –  Runaway Baby – 16.20%

4.) Mariam GogiberidzeShallow with Giorgi Nakashidze – 15.28%

5.) Davit Rusadze –  O (Fly On) with Giorgi Pruidze – 14.22%

Unlike this year when Georgian Idol selected both the artist and the song that represented Georgia at the Eurovision Contest, for 2020 only the artist will be selected through the popular talent show, since the song will be followed by internal selection.

We remind you that the four jury members who oversaw the three-episode phase of the auditions and will guide the ten finalists in their lives are:

-Natia Todua, a singer who has made a significant career in Germany after her win at The Voice of Germany in 2016.
-Tinatin Berdzenishvili, GPB’s Deputy General Manager and Head of Delegation of Georgia to the Eurovision Contest.
-David Evgenidze, composer. He was the head of the jury for the country’s participation in Junior Eurovision 2019. He will oversee the selection of the song for Eurovision 2020.
-David Aladashvili, pianist.

This year, Oto Nemsadze won the Georgian Idol and with “Keep on Going” represented Georgia in Tel Aviv, taking 14th place in the first semifinal. As he said, shortly after the end of the contest, his song had a political message and was directed against Russia and its politics in his country.
