Georgia returns to Eurovision in 2010

Georgian broadcaster GPB has confirmed today to our partner site that the Caucasian country is intending to return to the Eurovision competition next year in Oslo. Georgia was excluded in 2009 because their song was in breach of the contest rules, according to the EBU.

This year's Georgian entry, We don't wanna put in, was found ineligible to participate because of its political message. This was the last episode of a story that began one year ago, when Georgia decided to quit because of political reasons. Then, after winning the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, GPB decided to apply for the 2009 Eurovision, but the entry they submitted was rejected by the EBU.

Norway will then see the Georgian flag fly in May 2010.
