An official music video of the entry song of the Georgian contender at the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) was premiered in This Weekend program of First Channel of the Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB).
Group Circus Mircus will present Georgia at the 2022 ESC with the song Lock Me In.
Head of the Georgian delegation at ESC, Natia Mshvenieradze said that promo tours will be held in Israel and Spain where the delegations of participant countries are planned to meet for the first time.
The entry song deserved positive evaluations. “We are optimistic because the video has many views. We go to the contest with hope and we are sure that Circus Mircus will say its word at Eurovision,” Natia Mshvenieradze said.
Koka Gogokhia, Founder of Stockton Company, which works on the production, said that the premiere was adjourned due to the military hostilities in Ukraine.
“The ESC has its regulations, the deadline when we had to present the video. We believed that there was no emotional situation to do so. However, due to the timeframe, we had to upload the song. We thought the only message was solidarity to Ukraine and to those developments that are taking place in the country. Today forms in support of Ukraine change. There are many concerts and it was time to share with this video clip,” Gogokhia said.
This year, ESC conveys original concept and names of the group members will become known gradually. Since the establishment, the group released 10 musical videos, which differ in genres. Group members describe Circus Mircus as a “movement that brings together dozens of professionals from different fields to create an amazing audio-visual experience.”
