Putin-bashing song is Georgias entry for Eurovision

London, Feb 20 (ANI): A song mocking Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has been chosen by neighbouring Georgia as its entry to the Eurovision Song Contest.

The song, We Dont Wanna Put In was chosen by the country, which was invaded by Russia in a territory war last year, via a TV poll.

According to the Sun, the lyrics of the song continue as: The negative move, its killing the groove. You better change your perspective.

Viewers and a jury voted the song to represent them at the competition in Moscow in May.

However, Eurovision bosses might ban the songs, described by Georgia as light-hearted, as it breaches rules about making political statements.

But Eurovisions decision will come after the March 16 deadline for entries.

Although Georgia originally planned to pull out of the contest in protest against last years winner Russia, they later changed their minds and got Stefane Mgebrishvili to create the controversial song.

Georgia and Russia fought last August over breakaway region South Ossetia. (ANI)
