Despite the fact that Georgia had been left out of the annual Jurmala music contest during the recent years, the number of the performers wishing to participate in this year's contest was high enough to make the judges - who traveled to Georgia on April 2 to choose from thirty best artists - spend more than an hour discussing their impressions.
The judges ultimately selected the winner of the "New Voice" competition Salome Katamadze and finalist of the contest Nini Tsnobiladze for promotion. The two were invited for the final stages in Kiev on April 5 and the final selection of the panel fell on Katamadze, who performed the famous "We Are the World" as well as a Georgian song titled "Where Are You Heading".
