Summary in a sentence
There isn’t too much to say about the Georgian entry, its a solid performance but not particularly memorable!
Simple staging with lots of red and white, classic Eurovision camera angles
Vocally she is great, absolutely flawless. I don’t think she is giving the full performance level and when she does I think it’ll blow us away!
Watch the rehearsal!
