Georgian Pop Group to Use European Song Contest to Express Anti-Putin Sentiment

The Georgian pop group called Stephane and 3G will be performing their hit song “We Don’t Wanna Put In” at the upcoming Eurovision contest which is set to be held in Moscow this May.

The song, meant to be a play on words featuring Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, was selected by popular vote to be Georgia’s submission to the European song contest.

The popularity of the song reflects the strong anti-Russian sentiment amongst Georgians stemming from the brief war between the two countries this past August.

Many Russian’s are insulted and are calling for the song to be forbidden from the competition, so it will be interesting to see how the situation is handled if the song progresses into the later rounds.

“We don’t wanna put in / the negative mood / is killin’ the groove,” is the song’s chorus line. View the Youtube video.
