That's right, Georgia, YOU CAN'T WIN. Remember last month, the Georgians submitted the subtly anti-Putin song "We Don't Wanna Put in" for Eurovision? Well, according to guardian.co.uk, the European Broadcasting Union deemed the song "too political" for the Eurovision competition.
According to the rules of the event, no "lyrics, speeches, gestures of a political or similar nature shall be permitted during the Eurovision song contest".
In a statement today, the EBU said Georgia would have to change the lyrics and title or submit a new entry by 16 March, otherwise it would not be allowed to take part.
