The smallest country currently participating in Eurovision, San Marino, is hoping to go big this year as they plan to announce their entrant this Tuesday, January 12. The announcement will take place in a press conference at 18:00 CET that night, according to SMRTV.
While no details of the act or song have been revealed yet, it is rumoured that this year’s entry will have an international flavour, with involvement from both songwriters and performers from outside San Marino. We have heard rumours involving both Greece and Russia, perhaps following on from San Marino using Russian performer Kamilla Ismailova in Junior Eurovision last year.
The microstate, with its population of just over 32,500, has a limited number of performers, but that didn’t stop San Marino sending Valentina Monetta three years in a row. We’ve found several Sammarinese artists before who could do their country proud. B-Project could bring their EDM game on, or we could rock out with Helia, or possibly even see the newly-monikered Sen(h)it bring her new pop flavor to Stockholm. But whether from San Marino or somewhere else, whoever it may be, we’re excited!
The announcement will be streamed live on SMRTV on Tuesday January 12 at 18:00 CET.
