Georgia in Eurovision

Georgia debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 with Sopho Khalvashi’s Visionary dream and is yet to win the competition. The country achieved its best results in the contest in Oslo (2010) and Dusseldorf (2011) when it placed 9th in the Grand Final.

Georgia has competed 11 times in Europe’s favorite television show, the country has partaken in the event every year since their debut in 2007 with the exception of 2009 when the nation opted to stay out of the competition.

In 2018 the Georgians opted for an internal selection and selected the Ethno Jazz Band Iriao to fly the Georgian flag at the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon with their entry For you. Despite a great performance the country failed to qualify to the Grand Final for the second consecutive year.
