I keep my fingers pressed for Jenifer! She already has an individual style and the song is not mainstream, but it has a potential hit recognition.

Jennifer is my favorite. Her voice will be shown off better with a better song. The song isn’t dynamic enough for this sort of competition. Just wait.

I think all interpreters of this selection are already good.
However, my personal favorite is Jenifer Brening.
She captivates with her voice and charisma.
Incidentally, she is still an excellent composer and copywriter.

A couple of good songs here. Wasn’t expecting this from San Marino. Well done!

1. Sara de Blue got my vote

I also like Camilla, Emma, Franklin and Jessika feat Irol, in no particular order.

I must say that I LOVED “Who we are”. It’s the only song that got me tapping my feet and humming the tune some hours afterwards. I didn’t like “Stuck without me” that much in terms of the song itself, but anyway I love how IROL and Jessica’s voices sound together.
Emma has got a beautiful voice, but the song is quite generic. Camilla’s song was very nice but somehow I can’t picture it on the Eurovision stage.

My daughter and I have been following the whole contest from Australia and we are 100% sold on Camilla! Go Camilla!!

Camilla’s song was so beautiful and her voice matched it perfectly. 10/10 performance

Bella

Camilla should definitely win. She seems so kind and driven but most importantly for this contest has a KILLER beautiful voice that has and will continue to touch so many! She would put on such an amazing show in San Marino. I can’t wait to see how far she will go.
We are rooting for you from Canada!!

Giovanni is also very good. His song plays to his vocal strengths a lot and could get the Italian vote easily.

I’ve only heard Jessika feat. IROL so far and I really like it. If they go with it they’d need to revamp it a bit (acoustic probably wouldn’t work as well) but it’s got a good energy. That just need a killer song/singer combo to escape the semis this year.

Well done to all who performed on this show. The high point was the quality of the music and the singing. 🙂 In terms of presentation, this was a very unusual show. The language was English (except when it wasn’t), there was no apparent audience (live or otherwise), there were quirky presenters who at times were bordering on parody, and the judges were a unique mixture of experts. At times it came across as a serious documentary, and sometimes it was just pure comedy. The moments where the judge had to “collect his thoughts”, and when the presenter asked members… Read more »

lol okay, so Giovanni and Camilla just went from the bottom to top very quickly. Sara and Emma were actually the top for people wondering

Camilla I don’t know, but Giovanni probably find a way to cheat the poll, as he probably cheated to get the wildcard…

Giovanni has all of Sicily and Italy that follows him and supports him. His interpretation was the most emotional.

Giovanni’s performance was very very emotional, his song Fra Le Nuvole is on every radio here in Italy

Well I am pleasantly surprised, maybe because I had low expectations. Though there are some gems. I hope for the non acoustic versions soon!

Send IROL to Lisbon OMG! He is Sanmarinese, he is great rapper, he has own style and great songs! He will stand out at Eurovision! Why they should choose Finnish or Zimbabwe singers, when they have so great rapper? Send him 4times like Valentina, you don’t need search foreign singers abroad!

“Jessika feat. Irol” sounds better to me. But “Irol feat. Jessika” doesn’t, Jessika’s part isn’t very good in this one. Emma is cute, but her song isn’t strong.
In general, Irol rules.

tomm

Really hope Emma isn’t winning just because she is a fan favourite, because even though I love her, her song isn’t great. Sara de blue definitely had the best song and her voice is beautiful.
Jessica feat IROL was great to

Kaz

Sara De Blue or both of Jessika and IROL’s songs. As much as I would love to see IROL at Eurovision I think Sara De Blue would do the best. Her song and look are very striking. I think she or IROL could definitely do San Marino wonders!

IROL and Jessika were great both times. There is something cool in mixing the two languages and styles.

His rap in ‘Stuck without me’ is identical to his song Decollo, which was released in may 2017. I’m not sure, but I think it would violate the rules (Not to mention that Decollo sounds a 1000 times better)..

OMG the songs of giovanni motalbano and Franklin calleja are exactly the same. Play them together and you ll see… Someone cheated there…

West
Guest
West

I wouldn’t say cheated – some of them have same songs. For example the song Free Yourself is sung by Camilla North and Tinashe Makura, song Until the Morning Light by Jenifer Brening and Sara de Blue. They really didn’t bother to write 22 original songs.

Colin
Guest

That IS the same song in two languages. In heat two, some of them will swap songs, while others will have completely new songs.
