The music video for “Lock Me In” shows the iconic circus man associated with the band assembling a gradual show of circus tricks. Interspersed throughout the video are videotapes of people auditioning to be in the troupe. The warm colours that are present throughout the video offer a glitzy glimpse into the world of Circus Mircus. At the end of the video, the circus man received a coveted videotape and inserts it into the player. The video cuts with the shot of the television saying “#Show Me What You Got”.
Despite Georgia officially releasing the audio of “Lock Me In” in mid-March, the band held off on releasing the music video. In the video description, they said that they felt “it is not the right time to release our happy and colorful music video” in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Georgia’s Eurovision journey
Georgia’s history in Eurovision has been mixed since they began competing in 2007, represented by Sopho Khalvashi with Visionary Dream. Their highest placements – both coming in 9th – were achieved in 2010 and 2011, with Sopho Niharadze performing Shine and Eldrine with One More Day. They have not qualified for the final since 2016, where they were represented by Nika Kocharov & Young Georgian Lolitaz with Midnight Gold. They were represented in both 2020 and 2021 with Tornike Kipiani. His 2021 song – “You” – came 16th in the semi-final.
