Eurovision 2018 – Georgia
The Georgia song is called ‘For You‘ and performed by Iriao.
Iriao is an ethno-fusion band founded in Tbilisi, Georgia. The band’s repertoire is based on Georgian polyphonic music and harmony, saturated with jazz and modern music elements.
The group’s name is derived from a phrase, “Iriao-uruao” which comes the famous yodeling singing style “Krimanchuli” of Georgian traditional polyphonic music.
The song is composed by David Malazonia and Mikheil Mdinaradze – it translates into English as ‘For You’.
It’s a nice classic piano ballad and I love that it’s performed in their native language. However, it’s a bit boring and could possibly send people to sleep.
I very much doubt that this will qualify.
