Circus Mircus (Georgian: ცირკუს მირკუსი) are a Georgian progressive rock band. The band mostly plays experimental music, mixing numerous genres, each representing a life experience and the "inner world" of each member.[1] They represented Georgia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with the song "Lock Me In", placing 18th in the second semi-final, failing to qualify for the final.[2]

Circus Mircus consists of four members, named as Damocles Stavriadis, Igor Von Lichtenstein, Bavonc Gevorkyan, and Iago Waitman.[3] According to Wiwibloggs, these names are pseudonyms.[4]


The band was formed at the end of 2020 in Tbilisi, when three local circus academy dropouts became friends and left the academy to start their own band. According to a member of the band, the three "weren't good enough, [we were] probably the worst in the crew, [and] that's why we became friends."[2]

On 14 November 2021, it was announced that the group had been internally chosen by Georgian Public Broadcasting to represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.[2] Their competing song "Lock Me In" was released on 9 March 2022.[5] They performed 5th in the second semi final, and came 18th (last) with 22 points; 13 from the professional juries and 9 from the televote, failing to qualify for the grand final.
