Georgia 2011: trying something new

Some countries have a tendency of getting stuck in their ways when it comes to Eurovision - sending variations on the same theme year after year. That is clearly not a problem for Georgia, who selected their entry earlier today.

After having increasing success with females singing their hearts out, this entry is something radically different.

Eldrine - One More Day (Georgia 2011)

Think a Georgian Gwen Stefani teaming up with a Georgian Linkin Park, have them write a song together, then send them to Eurovision.

While not vocally flawless, the song is intriguing and suggestive and anything but your stereotypical eurosong.

Top marks for being original, and that is a very good start in my book.
