San Marino at Junior Eurovision
The beautiful Republic made its debut in the contest in 2013, when Michele Perniola went all Michael Jackson on us with his song “O-o-O Sole intorno a me”, ultimately finishing tenth.
The following year SMRTV cobbled together The Peppermints, a five-piece girl group. They continued Michele’s 80s fab with their song “Breaking My Heart”, eventually placing 15th.
Anita — the only San Marinese member of the Peppermints — later teamed up with Michele for Eurovision 2015.
Thrilled by the news? Who do you think San Marino will field this year?
