Former Eurovision Song Contest entrants Eva Rivas and Anri Jokhadze have filmed a new music video together in Georgia.
The video in which the stars play lovers took three days to film. It has not yet been released but the following photos, taken during the video’s filming, have appeared on the Armenian pop culture website, esem.am.
It was very cold and windy in Georgia, Eva Rivas told esem.am. There was snow across the mountains. I had to run across the show in a pair of high heels. It was so much fun, but I think the cold’s made me a bit ill!
Eva and Anri Jokhadze first met through the popular television show 10+10 in 2011. In the show, singers from Armenia are paired with singers from Georgia to sing duets. These duets are judged by a panel of experts from both countries. Among other contestants in the show is Sopho Gelovani, who represented Georgia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö along with Nodi Tatishvili. The pair’s duet, Waterfall, finished in fifteenth place in the Contest’s grand final. Sopho’s partner in 10+10 was the Armenian singer, Mher.
Anri Jokhadze represented Georgia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 with the song, I’m a joker. The song failed to qualify for the grand final of the competition.
Prior to competing in 2012, Anri performed as a backing vocalist when the country was represented by Diana Gurtskaya and her song Peace will come in 2008.
Eva Rivas represented Armenia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 with the song, Apricot stone. She finished in seventh place overall.
