Georgia: “Waterfall” released

Back on New Year’s Eve, Georgian broadcaster GPB announced that Sopho Gelovani and Nodiko Tatishvili would represent the nation in Malmö, in the hopes that the pair would bring Georgia back into the Finals after a disappointing showing in Baku.  Early on Wednesday, the duet’s entry, “Waterfall”, was revealed to the public during a popular morning chat-show.

The song, written by Thomas G:son (also behind “Euphoria”, “Quédate Conmigo”, “In A Moment Like This”, and many others), is a classic love ballad, somewhat reminiscent of 2011 winner “Running Scared”.  However, Sophie and Nodi, who have often worked together before Eurovision, appear to have more chemistry and comfort together than their Azerbaijani counterparts from two years back.  Even if their English accents could use a bit of a polish, their voices blend well together.

Georgia has yet to score higher than ninth place in a Eurovision Final; will “Waterfall” surpass that mark?
