Iriao had internally been chosen to represent Georgia in December. Their song For You was released today. The band will perform in the second semi-final at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon.

I quite expected a mora jazzy and uptempo song from this band. The song is very peaceful and emotional. This is a very interesting entry from Georgia. I really appreciate the Georgian language, that makes the song ten times better. It’s different than the others songs we have this year, and for me it kind of stands out because of that. It’s definitely original. It’s not a song I would listen to every day, but it does draw my attention. I think this is a very nice entry from Georgia. I actually think that this could qualify. The juries will certainly love this song. And I hope that the live performance doesn’t disappoint. 6/10
