Georgia | Ikako Aleksidze Is The Next Artist To Leave Georgian Idol
This year Georgia have opted to find their Eurovision entrant through Idol. Although, Eurovision artists have come from this reality show before. This will be the first time that it will be used directly to chose their singer for Tel Aviv. This method echo's Malta who have recently selected their performer.
Tonight saw the next edition of Georgian idol, that has seen another artist eliminated from the competition. This week has seen Ikako Aleksidze come last in the public vote. He has been near the bottom of the score board in several of the heats, but tonight's result has seen him leave the show, with him only securing 8.92% of the vote. The results are as follows:
Liza Kalandadze – 24.05%
Nini Tsnobiladze – 9.93%
Giorgi Pruidze – 10.96%
Giorgi Nakashidze – 11.98%
Oto Nemsadze – 22.57%
Tamar Lachkhepiani – 11.59%
Ikako Aleksidze - 8.92%
The jurors of tonight's edition were Stephane Mgebrishvili, Natia Todua, Tinatin Berdzenishvili, and Zaza Shengelia. The elimination of Ikakko means that there are only six more contestants left in the show.
It was 2016 when Georgia last qualified for the Eurovision final. Last year, the broadcaster opted to chose their entrant internally which saw Ethno -Jazz perform their song, "For You" which came last in the semi final 2, only scoring 24 points. Can the change in selecting its song herald a qualification for Georgia?
