Putin jibe picked for Eurovision

Georgia has chosen an entry which takes a swipe at Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for May's Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow.

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 Ossetia.

Relations between the two countries have been tense for several years.
