Georgians Consider Eurovision Pop Protest

| 3

Georgians may use the Eurovision Song Contest to poke fun at neighbouring Russia after losing last year's war between the two countries, if one potentially provocative song is chosen by the Georgian public as their entry for 2009. Eurovision, of course, will be held this year in Moscow, where the song Put-In Disco would probably not get much of an enthusiastic welcome. According to the Georgian pro-government television channel Rustavi-2, "the content of the song will be embarrassing for the Kremlin". But the TV station believes that it will not breach the contest's rules because "the lyrics do not include insulting phrases".

This is Stefane & 3G:

We Don’t Wanna Put In The negative move, It’s killin’ the groove.

BTW: They changed the lyrics from the original audio recording for the live performance.


Now there's reference to "shoot him..."

And check out the mimicking of a gun at the end as well as the slowly rising Nazi salute.

To be honest, I don't even think they're expecting to perform in Moscow...

i think the whole idea is just disgraceful to georgia and georgian music in general
just a cheap propaganda
and i hope they will be banned to perform

What do you think?
