Georgia's Eurovison Entry: A Real Winner

"A disco approach to conflict resolution." That's what Misha Saakashvili told Matthew Collin of the BBC while shaking his booty to the the playback of "Sunny" performed by an incarnation of Boney M in the South Ossetian village of Tamarasheni in the autumn of 2007.

Tamarasheni no longer exists since South Ossetian marauders burnt it to the ground during August's war, but Georgia hasn't given up on sending disco messages to their northern neighbors. Stephanie and 3G were chosen by a Georgian jury and audience to perform a campy send up of Vladimir Putin in the Eurovision contest in Moscow in May.

Good Luck video
