Wanna Put In”
Only the top 3 acts were announced.
Following the victory of Stephane & 3G, the EBU determined that the lyrics to “We Don’t Wanna Put In” were of a political nature, and thus were incompatible with Eurovision rules. The EBU asked GPB, the Georgian broadcaster, to change the song’s lyrics or submit another song to the contest. GPB denied that the song was political and refused to change the song’s lyrics or the song itself. Therefore Georgia were unable to compete in the contest.
