Georgia participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany, selecting their entry through a televised national final.[1][2] This was the country's fourth participation in the contest since 2007.[3]

Selection procedure[edit]

GPB decided to conduct an open selection again this year. Singers and songwriters are asked to send in their songs, the lyrics of which need to be either in Georgian or in English language, until the 5 February. Both the authors and the singers have to be Georgian citizens to be eligible. The national selection is scheduled to take place mid-February.[1]

On 13 February Boris Bedia and Keti Orjonikidze have withdrawn their entries.[4] On 18 February Tako Gachechiladze withdrew due to health problems.[5]
