Georgia in Eurovision Song Contest

Georgia 2016: Nika Kocharov And Young Georgian Lolitaz - "Midnight Gold"

Georgia has participated in Eurovision nine times since its debut in 2007, with the best result in 2010 and 2011 (9th place), and the worst result in 2014 (came last in Semi-final 2). Georgia manage to qualify to the Grand Final 7 out of 9 times.

The only year Georgia didn't participate was in 2009. They decided to send the song "We Don't Wanna Put In" to Moscow 2009, but because of a controversy about the lyrics in the song, EBU banned the song from participating, if the lyrics was not changed. GPB refused to change the lyrics, and withdrew from the contest.
