Georgia: Oto Nemsadze – Sul tsin iare

Georgia has selected Oto Nemsadze to go to Eurovision with the song Sul tsin iare. I travelled to Tbilisi last year and never came into contact with music like this. I'm aghast that a franchise like Idol could result in such an outcome. Sul tsin iare will surely resonate with other Georgians but fall desperately short of support beyond their borders. Clear non-qualifier!

  1. Gav? How………how long will this goes on? Five more of such songs and edition 2019 for me is one to skip :-O.

  2. This is going absolutely nowhere. Georgia somehow crawl under one of the lowest expectation bars of the season.

  3. I feel sorry for those who have to sit through all the rehearsals for this semi final.

      Really? I think semi 2 is worse. I’ve got quite a few favourites in this semi (which of course I can’t vote in). Semi 2 quality so far is only from Albania, Latvia and if Sweden send Lundvik. Of course, next week could change things.

  4. To me only these entries have a good chance on ending in the TOP 10 of the 64th Eurovision Final (and I’m not even talking here about what’s good or bad. Given the rather lacklustre line-up of 25 countries, the low amount of better entries will have a better chance to be noticed). And if these are the ‘best’, then I still don’t see any of them winning:
    –> Czech Republic
    –> Denmark
    –> Estonia
    –> Hungary
    –> Iceland
    –> Spain

    Qualification in reach, but I can’t see them troubling the TOP 10 in the final. They have already so many flaws. From rather scratchy vocalists (Germany) to a song that’s simply too alternative and is suffering from a good melody (Italy):
    –> Australia
    –> Belgium
    –> Germany
    –> Italy
    –> Lithuania
    –> Norway
    –> Slovenia

    Crap. Just dire crap. Not for my ears:
    –> Albania
    –> Croatia
    –> Finland
    –> France
    –> Georgia
    –> Latvia
    –> Moldova
    –> Montenegro
    –> Portugal
    –> Romania
    –> Serbia
    –> United Kingdom

    Yet to choose:
    –> 05-03: Azerbaijan
    –> 05-03: Cyprus: Still high on their runner-up position. Watch out for this one.
    –> 06-03: Greece
    –> 07-03: Belarus (NF)
    –> 07-03: San Marino
    –> 07-03: Switzerland
    –> 07-03: The Netherlands: Market loves it already, but my gut feeling tells me in the current field (many male soloïsts) Duncan will have some trouble to stand out. At least not like Spain, Czech Republic and Russia wil do.
    –> 08-03: Austria
    –> 08-03: Ireland
    –> 08-03: North-Macedonia
    –> 08-03: Russia: Gav is already impressed. And obviously they will prey heavily on pro-Russian sentiment with a western-pop stage performance.
    –> 09-03: Sweden (NF): I think John Lundvik is already dangerous TOP 10 material amidst the current field.
    –> 10-03: Israel
    –> TBD: Armenia: Very curious about their efforts now.
    –> TBD: Malta
    –> TBD: Poland

    So there’s still some improvement to expect from the remainder of countries yet to be chosen. 16 nations in total can still make the 64th Eurovision final line-up a good one. Let’s wait :-).

  5. Dead on arrival sadly. He is a fantastic singer and I quite enjoy it when the backing singers get involved but in the end where on earth is this getting points? Juries bar vocals won’t vote for it and the televote definitely won’t vote for it. Usually I praise Georgia for taking a risk, like last year, even when the odds of it turning out good are stacked against it but this isn’t a risk, this is a song that we all know is going home Wednesday morning.

  6. I thought odd numbered years were when Georgia was meant to send something mainstream and competitive.

    In recent years, juries haven’t vote for dated songs however well sung. And Oto’s slightly manic stare doesn’t help make it any more voteable.

    This is about as certain a NQ as you can get.
