Georgian Public Broadcaster GPB is welcoming 10 year old Sandra as their 14th representative for the competition. Sandra will be singing You Are Not Alone when she performs for her country on Sunday 29 November.
Sandra comes from a supportive family and lives in Tbilisi with her mother, grandparents, cousin and aunt. The Georgian artist says she's had a deep connection to music since she was very little and really loves to sing. With her selection she's now several steps closer to her ultimate dream of becoming a worldwide performer.
Georgia chose Sandra during their national final called Ranina. Over the past 3 months 10 performers competed for the right to represent Georgia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020.
The 10 competing artists were:
- Cecil Thurmanidze
- Veronica Shamugia
- Sandra Gadelia
- Rati Gelovani
- Gio Gogiashvili
- Marita Khvedelidze
- Nikoloz Reddit
- Shio Kavsadze
- Nia Khinchikashvili
- Lela Kveniashvili
Rati Gelovani and Marita Khvedelidze made it to the final with Sandra which took place on 13 November 2020. In the end, Sandra finished on top with the song You Are Not Alone.
Georgia at Junior Eurovision
Georgia has participated in every Junior Eurovision Song Contest since their debut in 2007 in Rotterdam, and is the only country that's won the contest three times; in 2008, 2011 and 2016.
In 2019 Giorgi Rostiashvili represented Georgia in Gliwice-Silesia where he finished in 14th place with the song We Need Love.
We're looking forward to watching Sandra perform!
