Putin jibe picked for Eurovision
BBC News UK –
But disco-funk song We Don’t Wanna Put In a play on the politician’s name could fall foul of Eurovision’s rule against political content in entries. A contest spokesman told BBC News some lyrics are “sensitive” but any action would be deferred until next month. Russia and Georgia went to war last year over the region of South ssetia. Relations between the two countries have been tense for several years.

Georgia’s Eurovision song pokes fun at Russian politics
RIA Novosti Russia –
The Georgian group Stephane & 3G (3 Girls) was chosen ahead of nine other acts in Tbilisi on Wednesday to represent the country at the popular annual music contest in which 51 countries compete. Stephane & 3G’s song is entitled We Don’t Wanna Put In an obvious reference to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Georgia and Russia have had no diplomatic ties since last summer when the two countries fought a five-day war and Russia recognized two Georgian republics as independent. Moscow is hosting the event for the first time after Russian Dima Bilan won last year’s contest in Belgrade with his song Believe.
