Georgia in Eurovision Song Contest

Georgia has participated in Eurovision seven times since its debut in 2007, with the best result in 2010 and 2011 (11th place), and the worst result in 2014 (came last in Semi-final 2). 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.
