  1. Not totally up my alley but it’s definately a more commendable effort for something alternative from Georgia compared to 2014.

    Good luck !

  2. I have been on their concert…. Even thought to submit them for ETSC… Wise choice and I’m sure that Georgia will have next outstanding entery this year….. Best of luck with the choice of the song!

  3. I found their songs to be quite dreary, to be honest. We’ll just have to wait and see how their ESC song will sound. I’ve really enjoyed the Georgian entries in both 2014 and 2015 so a hat-trick would be nice. :)

  4. This might turn out really good. The act seems to be hip and cool yet a tad juvenile too, which might go either way. I just hope that they don’t try being and sounding hip and cool to hard.

    And LOL at “melodic song structure of alternative and indie rock with electronic beats, synths and/or samples, and club orientation of post-disco dance music.” Very academical … in a juvenile way once again.

    Still, high hopes for this one. Good luck!

  5. I’m not exactly thrilled after listening to the songs posted in the thread.I hope they’ll present us with something interesting.By the way,don’t they write their own music.This ad asking for a melodic song structure of alternative and indie rock with electronic beats, synths and/or samples, and club orientation of post-disco dance music sounds a bit lame.

  6. I approve but results-wise they are gonna struggle…

  7. Doesn’t sound like my sort of thing but good luck Georgia nonetheless.

    Georgia is a really big hit and miss country they either send something truly great or something truly terrible.

    2014 terrible
    2015 fantastic
    2016 ???

  8. Off-topic: Vicky Leandros got the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany yesterday. :)

  9. It’s worth noticing that even though it’s only mid december we already know no less than 8 countries who have chosen their representative.

  10. Guess what!SVT plans new changes to be implemented in Stockholm.The voting takes too much time so they’ll try to make it more exciting.I don’t even want to assume what this may mean. :mad:
    Plus,they think such big countries like the big-5 should be given more time during the semis and not just appear in the final: http://esctoday.com/107405/svt-plans-to-introduce-changes-for-eurovision-song-contest-2016/

    • The plan to have the finalists perform in the semis has been announced for a while now and I am positive towards it.
      I am worried as well about the voting thing – I already dislike it that only the top 3 gets announced (could be the top 5 imo). Let’s hope we don’t only get the 12p announced now.

      • That would not be exciting- SVT said they wanted to make it more exciting so I doubt they’ll do the top 3 only

        • They also said the voting takes too long to which I disagree. How are they going to reduce the voting time though if they do not cut additional scores from the announcment ?

      • I know about that but the idea put on the table was for a part of their rehearsal to be aired during the semis.Now,they just say that apart from that the big-5 should be more active and present during the semis and not just appear for 3 min. in the final.
        As for the voting,i can’t really get them.Don’t they know that for everyone watching the esc final this is the most exciting part?

  11. The expert jury in the Belgian esc shows:
    Stijn Kolacny (head of the famous group Scala and Kolacny Brothers),
    Alexander Rybak (winner of Eurovision 2009),
    Tom Helsen (singer and songwritter),
    Beverly Jo Scott (American born singer and songwritter living in Brussels)
    Hadise (Turkish representative at Eurovision 2009)
    Christer Björkman (Swedish head of delegation and producer of Eurovision 2013/2016)

    However,they will not be voting in the final.They will only give their advice and comment on the performances

  12. It can be very promissing and fresh choice..

  13. …If this effort sounds like the band .fun, we are going to have serious trouble. Georgia is prone at being deadlast (2014), top 3 (2015) and back to dead last again. Is like musical pingpong. (Be Happy!)

    Other news: Elle from Moldova replaced a member and tried to apply with another song.

    But TRM rejected the song change, so up to them if they sing Tare without Tania Cerga or if they worm Extaz in (praying for the former. Tare >>>>>>>>>> Extaz)

  14. Some news on the Greek selection:It looks that ERT has approached some singers already.Mariza Rizou confirmed today that she declined ERT’S proposal.However it may be a bit promising they’re adopting a more artistic approach this year:

  15. National final for Spain!A total of 6 acts will compete in order to win the right to represent the iberian country in Stockholm.
