Circus Mircus to represent Georgia at Eurovision 2022
Georgian Eurovision broadcaster GPB and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) have announced the artist representing Georgia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin in 2022 in an unusual way.
Through an announcement of the Eurovision official website, the EBU announced that they had received a "mysterious letter" at the Eurovision Towers in Geneva reading as follows:
This is a message from Circus Mircus.
We would like to inform you that according to the decision made by the Georgian Public Broadcaster, at the international song contest Eurovision, Georgia will be represented by Circus Mircus.
You ask, what is Circus Mircus?
It is a movement that brings together dozens of professionals from different fields to create an unprecedented audio-visual experience.
The cornerstone of their philosophy lies in the complete neglect of musical frameworks.
To talk to ‘Circus Mircus’ members and for further information, please email us.
Circus Mircus is a musical act from Tbilisi formed by three dropouts from a local circus academy last year. Their musical style has been described as "sonically unique".
"We weren't good enough, probably the worst in the crew, that's why we became friends."
The group has released ten music videos in less than a year, with their latest video 'Musicien' released in July.
No song or release date was made in the announcement.
Georgia made their debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007. Over the last 14 years they have reached the final seven times. They reached the top 10 with two entries, both finishing in 9th place. The first time was in 2010 in Oslo, Norway, with Sopho Nizharadze’s ‘Shine’ and the second time was in 2011 when Eldrine performed ‘One More Day’ in Düsseldorf, Germany.
