Georgia: Results of Georgian Idol’s third Live Show | Tornike Kipiani again first

We had another exclusion at “Georgian Idol”‘s third Live Show, where there are now seven contenders claiming victory and at the same time Georgia’s representation at Eurovision 2020. For the second consecutive week, Tornike Kipiani, who seem to be the favourite for victory, was on top.

The eight contestants who continue on Georgian Idol after last week’s Second Live, performed live once again in front of a television audience voting for the candidate they like, via telephone and facebook messenger.

The two contestants who got the lowest percentage of the vote were Nika Kalandadze and Mariam Gogiberidze, with the first finally leaving.

At the third Georgian Idol Live Show, the candidates were asked to perform well-known Georgian songs. Below you can watch their performances:

1.) Tornike Kipiani – “Artificial Love” – 21.17%

2.) Barbara Samkharadze – “Lale” – 14.75%

3.) Tamar Kakalashvili – “Once in the street” – 14.64%

4.) Anri Guchmanidze – “Will Come Out Tomorrow” – 10.01%

5.) Davit Rusadze – “I don’t sleep” (10.01%)

6.) Mariam Shengelia – “Only for You” – 9.98%

7.) Mariam Gogiberidze – “Fall Asleep in the Sunlight” – 9.91%

8.) Nika Kalandadze – “The wind blows again” – 9.53%

Unlike this year where 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 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.
