Eurovision Song Contest 2016: Georgia – “Midnight Gold” By Nika Kocharov & Young Georgian Lolitaz

Young-Georgian-Lolitaz-eurovision-2016-nika-kocharovEurovision 2016 is almost upon us and as the countries begin to reveal their entries let’s start giving them the once-over. 

As I will be attending the grand final this year it’s even more super exciting for me!

The Georgia song is called “Midnight Gold” and is performed by Nika Kocharov & Young Georgian Lolitaz


Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz are bringing their very own special and creative style to the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. The band was internally chosen to represent Georgia in Stockholm. The song Midnight Gold was selected in a televised show out of five proposed entries by a joint decision of an international expert jury and televoting.

Nika Kocharov’s debut on stage took place with the group Blitz. That day Nika received his first gift, an acoustic guitar. He learned how to play the guitar on this unforgettable gift and still creates music on it. With Young Georgian Lolitaz, Nika Kocharov created a film soundtrack in 2003, which was later awarded the best soundtrack of the year. Soon after that the band received a business offer from London.


Written by Kote Kalandadze and Thomas G:son.


An alternative sound to a lot of the other songs – this is very indie and it’s not too bad. I like the 2nd half of the song much better than the first but will it go down well in a Eurovision setting?


It’s a borderline qualifier and if it does make it to the final it won’t make any impression on the leader board at all sadly.


“When I came to,
your smell on me
i reached around the bed and grabbed a cigarette out of your bag.
Sound of you breathing,
feel of your skin,
brought back some memories,
I never thought this all could happen to me.
Ten hours are missing from memory,
I vaguely can recall pain and pleasure mixing in one bowl
My mind is spinning,
I know the bliss
Ten million miles away my flesh and bones are dreaming in a haze.
Stains of mud on your skin
Night will come ans so will the sin”

Good luck guys!
