ANDORRA – We got the chance to be the first to have a video interview with Susan Georgi, the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest entrant of Andorra and actually the last participant of the country in the contest.
Susanne is fighting the past two years to get Andorra back to Eurovision. The news so far says that RTVA wanted to participate but the government didn’t give the funds for the participation. Susanne says she has found a foreign company and in October she submitted a sponsored proposal for Eurovision 2020.
All the country needed to be sponsorship of 150k Euros and they found it! But since October the government remains silent. But her main argument is for Susanne to help her country to be in the international spotlight, especially since the country by itself has 13 million visitors per year.
Speaking about the proposal, Susanne says there was just a sponsor proposal and despite receiving dozens of emails from artists and authors, there was no decision on whom ghouls represent the country. There is also a debate in which language they will if they re-enter the contest.
Susanne confirmed that EBU is informed about the proposal.
In the case of winning Eurovision, Susan explains that key factors are almost not a problem for them to host the event. Direct flights to Barcelona and Toulouse would help the fans and delegations to arrive in Andorra and there are enough accommodation facilities to host the amount of Eurofans.
The venue would be a problem but a solution could be found. After all, in the past it was cleared that in case the country wins, the event will be hosted in Barcelona, something though Susanne doesn’t really like, as the idea is to promote her country.
Ultimately she shares with us her amazing and heavily made view from her balcony and unveils an untold story from Moscow, although what happens in Moscow stays in Moscow!
Susanne Jonah-Lynn Georgi Puigcercós (born July 27, 1976, in Sjølund), commonly known as Susanne Georgi, is a Danish singer who lives and works in Andorra.
Georgi started her career along with her sister in the duo Me & My, the group had a couple of hits around Europe. They also participated in the Danish pre-selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2007 together, in the end landing a 6th place in the national final. She has stated on her official MySpace that she is currently recording her fourth album.
Georgi got married on September 10, 2011, and combined both surnames to become Susanne Jonah-Lynn Georgi Puigcercós.
Susanne arrived in Andorra in 1995 and has since lived there, she can speak fluent Catalan.
Susanne represented Andorra in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 in Moscow, Russia with the song “La teva decisió (Get a Life)”. The results of the national final in Andorra showed that she had received 47% of the jury vote and 66% of the public televote.
The song, however, failed to make it to the final, losing out in the first semi-final. It was not the first time Susanne has made an appearance in Eurovision, at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 she presented the Danish televoting results at the Final in Helsinki.
