Eurovision 2022: Georgia’s First Rehearsal!

The 5th act rehearsing today are Circus Mircus, representing Georgia, with their progressive alternative song Lock Me In

Everything about Circus Mircus:

The band was formed in Tbilisi at the end of 2020 by 3 circus academy dropouts and up to date they have released 11 songs. Their music is mostly experimental, mixing a lot of genres and sounds together through which they are willing to represent each member’s life experiences and inner world.

The Rehearsal

Apparently the whole performance is joyfully eccentric, with elements of Victorian circus, steampunk and neon graphic design woven through a really catchy pop song. On paper it shouldn’t really work, but it totally does.

All in all, it’s three very surreal minutes, but you know…it’s Circus Mircus. It was never going to be conventional, was it?

Second place is the goal, our country would not be able to accomodate Eurovision, because it is a lot of money involved. People know Georgia is not the wealthiest country in the world.

We believe Ukraine will definitely get the first place.

Who are Circus Mircus?

Circus Mircus is a Georgian progressive rock band consisting of Armenian drummer Bavonc Gevorcyan, Belgian vocalist and guitarist Igor Von Lichtenstein and Greek bassist and vocalist Damocles Stavriadis. The band plays mainly experimental music, mixing many genres, each of which represents a life experience and the “inner world” of each member. The band was formed in late 2020 in Tbilisi, when three graduates of the local circus academy became friends and left the academy to form their own band. According to one member of the group, the three of them, were probably the worst in the group, so they became friends.
