November 16: First impression from Georgia
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
THE STAGE IDEA
Doesn’t the tune of The Virus reminds you the disco song “I don’t wanna put in” which was disqualified in 2009 and Georgia withdraw from Eurovision in Moscow? I think it does to me. The performance is stunning with abstract shapes in the backdrop, theatrical and vocally extremely powerful. Georgia can win with this kind of songs and the three girls accompanying the lead singer are simply perfect professionals.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE VIRUS
Elen turns eleven just before arriving in Bulgaria and has been singing since she was three years old. Now in sixth grade at the Newton Free School, she enjoys swimming, hip hop, dancing and performing at charity events, nursing homes and orphanages. Her dream is to run her own charity foundation someday.
Eleven year old Tako is also in the sixth grade at ‘Saduni’ school. When she was six she won a modelling contest and was a ‘princess’ for the year. Since then, she’s focussed her time on singing, dancing, drawing, swimming and playing fooball.
The ‘oldest’ one in the group, Lizi, is twelve and in seventh grade. When not studying at school, she’s at the ‘Bzikebistudio’ music school, which helped her win first place at the ‘Trikole’ music festival in Italy. Lizi enjoys singing, painting, football and skiing and hopes to become a singer and a model when she’s older.
Data enjoys swimming and playing football in his free time but the hobby he loves the most is singing. A student at the international ‘new school,’ he is eleven years old and spends his free time taking singing lessons at the same ‘Bzikebistudio’ performing school as his bandmate Lizi.
