The Shin and Mariko Ebralidze the 2014 Georgian representatives have recorded their Eurovision entry Three minutes to Earth.

The Shin and Mariko Ebralidze were selected by GBP via an internal selection to represent Georgia at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in  Copenhagen. The famous Georgian folk band The Shin has composed the 2014 Georgian entry.

The Shin & Mariko have recorded the 2014 Georgian Eurovision entry at the Scb Music Studio in Stuttgart, Germany. The Georgian entry has been composed by Zaza Miminoshvili, member of The Shin, whilst Eugen Eliu is behind the lyrics of the entry.

The stage performance and the official Georgian 2014 videodlip for The Shin & Mariko, the Georgian 2014 Eurovision contenders, will be directed by Tamar Photskhishvili (Artististic Designer) and Basa Potskhishvili (Filmmaker). The videoclip of the song will be filmed and produced in Georgia. GPB plans to premiere the 2014 Georgian Eurovision entry by mid March.

The Shin and Mariko describe their song-

It describes the last three minutes of a long walk back to Earth, back home. The song is about feelings and thoughts you have when you return, and it also tries to answer the question how the earth sounds at the moment.

In 2013 GPB opted for an internal selection when Sopho Gelovani and Nodi Tatishvili were selected to fly the Georgian flag in Malmo with Thomas G.sson’s Waterfall, achieving a 15th place in the final.
