In some countries hundreds, in some thousends apply for the Eurovision song contest. In Georgia we have 27 applicants*. Surely makes the life of the selecting jury easier. How the winner is chosen is not made known but rumor is there will be a national final of some form and some number of entries. Though last time they did one the artists performed on video instead of belting their entries out live on stage.... We live intriguing times while waiting what they have come up this time around.... 
Anyways, among the applicants from the previous selections like Misha Sulukhia and Eter Beriashvili at it again and a lot of talent show royalty: winner of the Voice 2013 Mariam Chachkhiani, Georgian Idol winner 2009 Oto Nemsadze who has done also the Voice of Ukraine, some names from X Factor (Andria Glevesiani, Giorgi Chikovani, Sparkle) and even to New Wave winners: Rati Durglisvhili (2008) and Nutsa Buzaladze (2014). Out of this lot they should get out something good, right?
*Sabina Chantouria was added to the line up. Her application was sent in time but delivered late. Maybe the Finnish Posti is in charge delivering the mail also in Georgia.....
