In 2014 GPB selected Mariko Ebralidze and The Shin via an internal selection with their entry Three minutes to Earth. The Georgian hopefuls failed to qualify to the grand finale in Copenhagen, despite a fun loving performance.
Georgia debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 with Sopho Khalvashi‘s Visionary Dream. The country is yet to win the event and their best placing at the contest has been a 9th place in 2010 with Sopho Nizharadze‘s Shine and in 2011 with Eldrine‘s One more day.
The 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 19, 21, 23 May at the Wiener Stadthalle, in Vienna.
