With just over two months to go until Junior Eurovision 2023 takes place in Nice, we see some changes to Georgia’s representative. GPB has revealed that Anastasia Vasadze will be joined by Nikoloz Kharat and Oto Bazerashvili in representing Georgia in this year’s competition.
First non-solo representative since 2015
The change comes a few months after Anastasia won Ranina 2023. Nikoloz and Oto would be familiar to avid Ranina viewers as they both competed in the 2022 edition of the competition. With the trio set up, Anastasia, Nikoloz and Oto becomes the first non-solo act to compete for Georgia at Junior Eurovision since 2015.
The news of the changes within Georgia’s Junior Eurovision 2023 participation was also featured in the broadcaster’s news report, where we see all three participants rehearsing and talking to the reporters about their participation.
Further information in regard to Georgia’s Junior Eurovision 2023 entry will be revealed in due course.
