Eurovision 2024: Georgia’s First Rehearsal!

After the first rehearsals of Latvia and San Marino, it is time to move to the Caucasus region and welcome Georgia on the stage of Malmö. This year Georgia is represented by the talented Nutsa Buzaladze, one of Georgia’s most famous singers and songwriters, with her song “Firefighter“. It is time to set the stage on fire!

Who is Nutsa?

Buzaladze was born in Tbilisi in 1997, but she grew up in Turkey. She started singing even from the age of five years old, when she performed as a member of a children’s group. Later, at the age of eight, she began taking piano lessons as well.

Moreover, Nutsa began her solo career back in 2011 when she competed in Georgia’s Got Talent, while three years later, she gained international attention as she represented Georgia in the New Wave Music Festival, held in Latvia, where she won. She has also taken part in The Voice of Turkey, where she collaborated with her coach, Hadise, who represented Turkey back in 2009 in Moscow with “Düm Tek Tek”. Additionally, she has also taken part in the Georgian version of Your Face Sounds Familiar.

Furthermore, in 2017 Buzaladze released the song “White Horses Run“, which she placed second in the Georgian selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with. Two years later, she released her debut album, Nutsa22, containing covers of Georgian songs and original English ones. Nutsa has also participated in the 21st season of the American Idol, in which she finished in the top 12.

Last but not least, she has also lived in Los Angeles, and since 2024 Dubai is her permanent residence, where she had also performed at the Expo 2020, the Dubai National Theatre and the Dubai Opera.

The rehearsal:

Time for Georgia to rehearse, with Nutsa Buzaldze singing her dance track Firefighter. She’s competed in a singing competition or two, including American Idol in 2023, where she made the final. Yes, actual American Idol. She did a duet of Can’t Get You Out Of My Head with Kylie Minogue. This feels like a Eurovision fever dream, but there’s video evidence and everything.

Anyway, we know from pre-party season that Nutsa has some powerhouse vocals, and she’s definitely brought them to Malmö. She starts alone on stage on a raised plinth, under a red spotlight and backed by red smoky graphics. At the end of the first verse she’s joined on buy four male dancers in black (with shirts) – it’s a VERY polished, high-energy dance routine with the LED graphics building through the song into sparking balls of flame.

Nutsa’s costume is a shiny gold mini-dress paired with boots – she doesn’t miss a note, despite the energetic routine.

PYRO UPDATE: SO. MANY. FLAMES!

Below you can watch a snippet of Nutsa’s very first rehearsal on stage of Malmö:

Eurovision 2024: Postcard filming continues!

The filming of the postcards for Eurovision 2024 continues, with two countries confirming that they have commenced filming their very own postcards!

The postcards are the introductory video that we see before the performance of each entry and it presents us with information about the artists, their country of origin and the organizing country.

Last week, the French representative, Slimane, announced that the filming of his Postcard is in progress, while these days Nutsa Buzaladze, the representative of Georgia, revealed that she has also started filming for her own postcard.

At the same time, through a post on Instagram, we saw some pics from the postcard of Raiven, representative of Slovenia, which took place, among other places, in Celje Castle, the residence of Veronika Deseniška, from which her song is inspired:

With the info we have so far, we can assume that this year’s postcards focus on the artists themselves, just as was the case in 2016 when Sweden last hosted the competition, however it is still unknown if the postcards will be recorded in Sweden, each participant’s country , or both.

Nutsa herself will evaluate the submissions and she will ultimately decide which song she will perform in Malmö.

The information above confirms the exclusive information we revealed a few days ago, which stated that several well-known composers—mostly from abroad—submitted their proposals to Georgian public television.

Their submissions contain a variety of intriguing songs, including dance tracks. Furthermore, Nutsa Buzaladze has disclosed her preference openly, saying that she wants to make people dance.

Since Georgia hasn’t been to the grand final of Eurovision since 2016, the public’s hopes have increased upon learning that Nutsa Buzaladze will represent the country in 2024. Furthermore,the country has now moved up in the betting odds, reaching as high as the 8th place.
