The songs from each artist will be presented on 31 December.  The official videos will be aired from 1January to 14 January, and the audience will vote for their favourite candidates.

As reported by ESCToday on 3 December 2014 Georgia’s Eurovision Song Contest representative for 2015 will be selected by a mixture of public voting and international jury deliberation.

Georgia debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest of 2007, when Sopho Khalvashi’s Visionary dream achieved a twelfth placing at the Grand Final of the Helsinki spectacular with a total of ninety-seven points.  Georgia was last represented by The Shin and Mariko.  Their jazz fusion entry Three minutes to Earth was selected internally, and finished in fifteenth place at the second Semi Final of the Copenhagen 2014 contest.
