Eurovision rejects Georgia's 'anti-Putin' song

By Super Admin

London, Mar 11 (ANI): Organisers of Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow have rejected Georgia's entry because it "pokes fun" at Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

Apparently, the disco-funk song, We Don't Wanna Put In, is controversial, and it is against the competition's rules to allow political content in entries.

"No lyrics, speeches, gestures of a political or similar nature shall be permitted," The BBC quoted a contest spokesperson, as saying.

This year's Eurovision song contest is to be held on May 12 and Georgia has been given until March 16 to "either rewrite the lyrics of the song, or to select another song for the contest".

The song was chosen by a public vote and jury, and was due to be performed by female trio 3G along with male vocalist Stephane.

The song, which has a distinct 1970s feel, contains the chorus: "We don't wanna put in, the negative move, it's killin' the groove." (ANI)
