Georgia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest
Since debuting in 2007, Georgia hasn’t missed out on a single contest and has enjoyed great results. In fact, the country holds the record for most victories, being the only country that won three times. Georgia first won in 2008 with Bzikekb and their song “Bzz..“, then again in 2011 with Candy’s “Candy Music” and finally in 2016 with Mariam Mamadashvili and her song “Mzeo“.
Besides, they also came second twice in 2012 with Funkids and 2017 with Grigol Kipshidze. They also only missed out on being in the top 10 once in 2014 with 2017’s host Lizi Pop. Georgia also hosted the Junior Eurovision in 2017 in its capital Tbilisi, the first time the country hosted a Eurovision-related event. Their entrant, Grigol Kipshidze, narrowly missed out on giving Georgia its fourth victory, finishing second just 4 points shy of the trophy.
For their recent attempt in 2019, Georgia opted to select Giorgi Rostiashvili for Gliwice-Silesia, with the song ‘We Need Love’. During his participation at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Giorgi managed to place 14th with 69 points from the juries and online viewers.
