The Georgian broadcaster GBP just made known that Young Georgian Lolitaz band Nika Kokharov & will represent the country at the upcoming Eurovision song contest in Sweden.

The news that the band to the Eurovision song contest, is not entirely unexpected. On the website of GPB has (inadvertently) been a picture of the group, but that was quickly taken offline.

Young Georgian Lolitaz, founded in 2000, consists of Nika Kokharov, Gia Iashvili, Nick Davitashvili and Dima Oganesian. The group is still relatively unknown in their own country, but the band released several songs already out. Their song Gay Swimmer fits in the Eurovision atmosphere. Their separate group name is a parody of different porn websites.

GPB does now a call to composers to a song for the boys. They are looking for a danceable song, with indie-rock and electro influences. A song can be sent to 8 January.

Geogrië opts for 2016 so for an internal selection, while they chose this year for a national tour. Georgia finished eleventh on the last song festival in Vienna. Singer Nina Sublatti sang when the song Warrior.
