    There is no bigger difference in attitude to the contest than the one between Sweden and Georgia.

    Sweden send songs that are supposed to win the contest, or at least do well. Georgia, at least since 2018, send songs they like, regardless of how well they do or not.
    Georgia’s efforts are more miss than a hit. Nevertheless,I applaud them for keep trying and for taking a risk.
