The Peppermints—the Italian-San-Marinese quintet that will sing at Junior Eurovision 2014—have revealed a video of their song “Breaking My Heart”. The mid-tempo number talks about heartache and woe—a perennial lunchtime conversation topic for teenage girls all over Europe.

Surely our readers will relate to the topic, but will they relate to the act and the song? We think so. Raffy, Greta, Anita, Arianna, and Sara come off as real teenagers—not fame-obsessed pop stars in training. The video follows them recording their song and playing around in the studio. As for the song, it has a vintage feel that is at once universal and nostalgic. It harks back to the days of “Dirty Dancing” and and “Top Gun”.

I like this entry more than last year. But it’s not my favorite

I’m disappointed. The studio version sounds pretty cheap and the singing sounds a bit out of tune. Maybe this is just a demo version? But I’m glad to see San Marino participating at all.

Love it.
1) Belarus – 10/10
2) Cyprus – 9/10
3) San Marino – 9/10
4) Sweden – 9/10
5) Russia – 9/10
6) Netherlands – 8/10
7) Armenia – 7/10
8) Georgia – 7/10
9) Ukraine – 6/10

Such an incredibly strong year so far and I can’t imagine disliking any songs. Also, as I said before I love how teenagers are taking an interest in participation, it’ll bring Junior Eurovision to a more mainstream audience as the teenagers generally perform more mature songs rather than the childish ones the children perform.

A good candidate for last place. Not a bad song but I don’t see people picking up their phones to vote for this. I hope the live performance is better.

It’s better than Michele Perniola. His song and live performance was really awful.

I expected so much more.
It sounds like a soloist song and lacks any oomph.
This is more of a bathroom break song. They sound so bored when singing.
It needs a complete overhaul or remix.
