Georgia – The band Eldrine had been selected to represent Georgia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 2 weeks ago. Now the band has announced that they have changed their front singer. Tako Vadachkoria will no longer be the most recognizable face of the band and is replaced by Sopho Toroshelidze. Sopho had been one of the backing singers in last year’s Eurovision Song Contest for Sophia Nizharadze. She has also participated in the casting show “Star Academy”. She graduated from the Ivane Sarajishvili Tbilisi State Conservatoire and is said to have a brilliant voice.
The video for the Georgian entry will be shot this week in the Rustaveli Theatre. The pantomime actors of the theatre will be featured in the video. Furthermore French director Pascal Jourdan has been engaged to stage the Georgian performance at the Eurovision Song Contest.
