Since their first participation in the Eurovision Song Contest, in 2007, Georgia has always qualified for the Final. This year, the public broadcaster GPB is trying to continue this success story, and today, nine hopefuls will try to prove their talent in the Georgian national final.

This is the line-up (in order of appearance):
- Mirror Illusion - Whisper
- November - Letter To A Friend
- Industrial City - Broken
- Leo Jee - It's My Life
- Edward Tatiani - Hey You
- Boris Bedia - It's Life
- Vanilla Cage - Breaking The Cage
- REMA - Feel Me
- Anri Jokhadze - I'm A Joker
Anri Jokhadze, November and Boris Bedia all participated in the 2009 Georgian national final. All other participants will celebrate their debut on a national final stage today. Sabina Babayeva, the Azerbaijani representative in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, will perform as a special guest in the show.
