"Shine" is a song composed by Hanne Sørvaag, Harry Sommerdahl and Christian Leuzzi and performed by Sopho Nizharadze, and represented Georgia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010. The song was selected on 27 February from six songs performed by Nizharadze, with a public televote and a professional jury selection the winner.[1][2] The preview video came out in the middle of March 2010.[3] It came ninth place in the contest's final.

This is Hanne Sørvaag's third Eurovision entry, after co-writing the No Angels song "Disappear", the German entry for 2008, and the Norwegian entry for the 2010 Contest "My Heart Is Yours", performed by Didrik Solli-Tangen.

The song was originally written for Celine Dion.[4]
