This weekend That Eurovision Site’s Angus got to attend Madrid’s Pre-PartyES. While there he interviewed Georgia’s 2022 representatives Circus Mircus. They spoke about their musical influences, and how Circus Mircus came to be. They also spoke about how their live performances come together now. Georgia will perform in the second Eurovision semi-final on May 12th. Circus Mircus will perform the song “Lock Me In” at Eurovision 2022.
Who are Circus Mircus?
Very little appears to be known about Circus Mircus. Their Facebook page header even has their faces blurred out of it!
We do know that there are three members – Bavonc Gevorcyan, Igor Von Lichtenstein and Damocles Stavriadis – and that the band was formed in 2020 after the three dropped out of the local circus academy.
Their music is described as “sonically unique”, with a style that lies in “the neglect of musical frameworks”. A quick flick through their YouTube channel takes you through a diverse range of genres, from the gentle Musicien to the more upbeat, indie-feeling 23:34, and synthed-up, experimental Weather Support.

Georgia in the Eurovision Song Contest
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.
