This week, our quiz heads over to Georgia. The Georgian quiz will as always, cover their now just over a decade of participation. The Georgian liking for unusual entries makes for some interesting questions. It’ll be a fun ride, please join me below.
With a few weeks before we begin looking forward to Eurovision 2019, it’s that time in a Eurovision fan’s year to reflect on past years and all the good music and events they brought. And, also, some trivia.
So You Think You Know… is a series that will arrive each Wednesday, each time focusing on a new active Eurovision country. We are continuing alphabetically, Germany will be next.
How many singers named Sopho has Georgia sent overall (credited names only)?
Additionally to the three, Eldrine’s lead singer is a Soph(i)o but Georgia’s once favourite Eurovision name (in 2007, 2010 and 2013) has been a bit absent lately.
Diana Gurtskaya has what impairment?
Georgia withdrew in 2009 because their planned song was alleged to be a reference to which Russian politician?
With the contest being hosted in Russia, and in the wake of the conflict between the two nations the previous year, the EBU asked Georgia to change the lyrics of ‘We Don’t Wanna Put In’. The Georgians refused and withdrew.
How many top 10 results has Georgia achieved?
5 of their 7 qualifiers have finished between 9th and 12th inclusive, which may give a perception that there have been more.
One More Day achieved its top 10 result from which performance position in the final?
Which of these unusual genres has Georgia NOT sent?
‘Three Minutes To Earth’, ‘One More Day’ and ‘For You’ respectively for those three. The jazz and folk is fairly similar, as it’s a traditional Georgian style. I’d love to see their take on electro swing though.
What is the only Georgian entry to have been entirely in Georgian so far?
I’m A Joker was partly in Georgian but few people remember that (as it was so bad!).
What striking colour did Nina Sublatti wear on stage for ‘Warrior’?
Georgia has given what nation the most points across all Eurovision finals?
For 2019, Georgia have announced a new competition to select their entries. What will this be called (this is one for our frequent readers)? International versions of the show are in parentheses.
The other fake names are made up.
If you haven’t already played them (or just want to play them again), check out the below links for the So You Think You Know… quizzes from past weeks.
