Georgia is taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2007 and their best result is a 9th place in two years (2010 and 2011). Last year they finished last in their semifinal. This time the young singer, Nina Sublatti will represent the country with her song, Warrior. Read the interview I made with Nina!

What was your first step in your music career?
I started singing when I was 3 months old. since that I never quitted. I’m interested in creating music and new technologies.
This year you were selected to represent Georgia at Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna. What does it mean for you?
Performing in Europe is most important thing for me. I’m still looking for better concerts, bigger tours, so I think Eurovision is a great chance for every Georgian artists to take.

This year there are two Warriors in the contest. Have you heard the other Warrior? What is your opinion about Amber’s song?
Yes, I heard it. I can’t say a lot about Eurovision’s songs, it won’t be collegial. I wish luck for all of them!

Have you ever dreamed singing on the stage of Eurovision?
My fans persuaded me to take part in national selections. It would be unfair to say no to them. I never dreamed about that. I don’t even work in pop music.

If you could pick up only one word which word describes your life best?
I don’t know.. Artistic or feministic.

Who are your favourite singers?
I really admire Bjork, she is great musician. Very modern, she mixes interesting genres together and does lots of experiments. I also love Depeche mode, die antwoord, Moby, Janis Joplin and etc..
This year there will be 39 more contestants in the contest. Do you have your favourites?
I think some of them are really good!

What would you like to achieve in the contest?
Of course I would like to achieve everything best. Best results are very important for my country right now.

What inspires you?
My experiences inspires me, nature inspires me. There’s lot of thing that gives me some muse.

Would you like to leave a message for the readers of this interview at ESCHungary?
I would like to say thank you for positive messages and reviews about my song and video. It’s very important for every artist. I hope you will support me on Eurovision contest.
