Tornike Kipiani

Tornike Kipiani was born 11 December 1987 in Tbilisi, Georgia. He is a 32-year-old musician, the father of 3 children and a professional architect. When he founded his own band at age 19, he didn't even consider becoming a vocalist. While Tornike and his bandmates looked for an additional member to fill that vacant spot, he took that spot. The rest is history.

In 2014, Tornike won the first season of X Factor Georgia, where his mentor was the future Georgian-Greek Cyprus Eurovision star, Tamta. In 2017, Tornike tried to represent Georgia at Eurovision with the industrial techno song, You Are My Sunshine. In 2019, he returned to Georgian Idol and was selected to represent Georgia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 after winning the show. Tornike will enter with the song Take Me As I Am.

Lyrics of Take Me As I Am

How do you want me to talk, like an Englishman?
Where do you want me to dress like an Italian?
Now, do you want me to dance like a Spanish guy?
I guess you don't love me.
No, you don't love me.

I love you
Ti amo
Tue quiero

#Takemeasiam

But you don't love me,
Why don't you love me?

So tell me, why do you want me to smell like a French homme?
Or tell me, why do you want me to play like a German?
Why don't you want me to be, just the way I am?

I guess you don't love me,
Why don't you love me?

Je t'aime
Ich liebe dich

But you don't love me,
Why you don't love me?

I love you, I love you
