Georgia are wasting no time in preparing for Junior Eurovision 2018. The 2017 edition in Tbilisi isn't even over yet and they have already announced that they will have a national final "Ranina", that will run over three months starting from January 2018.
The competition, that will span over three months, will feature lots of different episodes with children between the ages of 8-13. Singers between the ages of 8-13 were invited to audition at the GPB studios back in October 2017, and since then, the broadcaster have chosen the artists they would like to see compete in the national final. During the show, the artists will have the opportunity to sing with famous Georgian singers.
