Despite widespread reports of a change in the Georgian song title, Sopho will be singing Visionary Dream in Helsinki, and not My Story, esctoday.com can reveal directly from the Georgian camp, after a couple of conflicting emails. The confusion arose because the official documentation presented to the EBU states that the song is called 'Visionary Dream' but the name 'My Story' was still appearing on official emails.
Sopho's PR team, who have already worked with the likes of Ukrainian Eurovision winner Ruslana, are eagerly anticipating a stunning debut for Georgia in Helsinki this May.They explained how the contest has turned into "a grand happening" which has caterpulted the singer to the status of "a national hero who is preparing to get Europe acquainted with beautiful Georgia".
A good song will be noticed!
Commenting on the draw, Sopho's team wished to congratulate those countries who received the opportunity to choose their own position in the final, but stress that they are more than satisfied with start position number six: "we believe that a good song will be noticed no matter what the place in the draw. We hope that being number six will bring us only the best of luck", said Mrs. Nino Sanadiradze, Assistant Head of the Georgian delegation.
Georgian television has already initiated a series of live link-ups with Finnish programmes from YLE, and is closely following every move as far as the contest is concerned. As Sopho attempts to match neighbouring Armenia's explosive 2006 debut, a whole nation is supporting its songstress heroine.
