It’s the biggest shock of the Eurovision season so far. International superstar rapper Flo Rida is collaborating with Freaky Queen Senhit on her song for Rotterdam. Together, the pair will sing “Adrenalina” for San Marino at Eurovision 2021. And since this announcement, the betting markets have spun into a frenzy.

A staggering 41% of all bets made since the Flo Rida announcement are on San Marino to take home the Eurovision 2021 trophy.

Eurovision 2021 odds: 41% of bets on San Marino to win Eurovision

Flo Rida collaborating with San Marino for Eurovision seems very 2020 — i.e. very unexpected — but the wild on-goings of the previous year appear to have spilled into 2021. Despite not being the most well-known country in Europe, San Marino have potentially secured one of the greatest coups in not only the history of Eurovision, but quite possible the history of anything.

Last week, San Marino were at a whopping 299/1 to win Eurovision. However, within a matter of minutes following the Flo Rida announcement, those odds were slashed to as short as 14/1.

This meant San Marino’s chances of winning Eurovision grew from 0.3% to 6.7%. One British bookmaker lists Senhit and Flo Rida sixth favourites to win Eurovision now.

As expected, Flo Rida featuring at Eurovision caused quite the stir, and also led many people to rush to the Eurovision betting market. Eurovision is one of the biggest betting events each year, with millions of people around the world looking to cash in on the song contest. Since San Marino announced they would be working with Flo Rida, a massive 41% of bets in the market have been on the micro-nation winning Eurovision 2021.

Italy is the second most wagered country in the Eurovision betting market, accounting for 7% of bets since San Marino’s shock announcement.

“If Flo Rida was to confirm he would be taking the trip over to appear at Eurovision 2021, then the 28/1 still knocking about for a San Marino win would be good value”, OddChecker’s Head of Marketing Sam Eaton says. However, our pick at the minute remains Ukraine at a whopping 74/1.”

I do want to say something about this headline, because credit should be given where it’s due. It’s not just Flo Rida causing San Marino’s surge in the polls. I mean, he’s a big name but it’s not like he’s still in his heyday. I think we should focus on the fact that San Marino has finally invested in a decent composition, instead of something outdated from the musical bargain basement. That thought has been put in an artistic view on this entry. And that Senhit is a good singer with charisma, unlike most of San Marino’s previous performers.

I have an issue with the fact that this song is performed by a female lead singer, with a man featured on a tiny part of the song, and guess who the credit is given to? The man (and oh surprise, this article is also written by a man). This is structural sexism at its peak, probably not done consciously but still is.

Is San Marino the best song, revolutionary and is this going to change the contest? Of course not, but that’s not the goal of the song. Senhit is giving us a happy, “feel good” pop song, really easy to remember and well constructed, and even if Flo Rida is not the biggest star now, he’s big enough to make us talk about him. They did a good job, they deserve this recognition. Are they going to win? Probably not, but hey, who knows, never underestimate the power of memes, and San Marino winning can be the moment.

I know this is not a perfect entry, but even considering the problems, this is really strong and, without a doubt, this is one of the biggest surprises of the year (if not the biggest).

Flo Rida means nothing at all. I mean, he was big 10 years ago. The song is modern with some ethnic vibes and a Spanish word (very in line with today trends) but other than that it’s pretty much a late 00s/early 10s song. I’m not saying it’s bad but it’s clearly not the masterpiece some fans are selling. Every year there is at least one uptempo song that gets hyped, though, so I’m used to that. Anyway, even if I’m not a big fan of the song I do want San Marino to do well and take home a… Read more »

It’s weird because I’ve always wanted Russia, Belarus, Ukraine to Send in songs in their native languages at the same time. But other than Ukraine, they’re bad. Can we see a case where possibly most or even worse all three could be out of the final just like Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia were eliminated in 2018? I think Ukraine probably has the best chance to qualify of those three, but it depends on how well received their revamped shum is. It’s supposed to be out today.

Its not only Flo Rida but also the fact that we all had low expectations from San Marino and we didnt see that coming. With low expectations the excitement and the hype is bigger.
I really hope it doesnt flop for many reasons. If it scores high then it will be a win for music in general because that will prove that music is more important than politics in eurovision and we all need that.

I wonder, if San Marino theoretically wins, where would be ESC ’22 held? Even if they had a suitable venue, I don’t think that SMRTV can afford to host the contest – they would probably have to cooperate with RAI (it makes sense because Italy is not only the nearest country but it’s also a member of Big 5). In such case, would it be possible to organize it in Rimini or would they have to choose some bigger city (Rome, Milan etc.)?

P.S. I know that Valentina has a nice backyard, no need to repeat it again.

Valentina’s got a nice frontyard too.

But in all seriousness, as San Marino collaborates with Italy to support its voting results, it’s probable they’d come to an arrangement to host in a suitable Italian city—Bologna might be an option. I’m sure the EBU has a contingency plan, probably involving Germany.

Rimini would make sense. It’s the closest major city to San Marino. It has an international airport and is well connected to the rest of Italy/Europe.
RAI could co-host with SMRTV. Use SMRTV presenters, postcards could be San Marino focused, red carpet etc could all take place at a venue in San Marino, like the castell. But the venue, production team etc could be RAI.

The last time a micro nation won was Monaco in 1971, But they didn’t even host at all, just pass the buck to the United kingdom which hosted the 1972 contest in Edinburgh. My strongest guess would be somewhere in Italy because it’s located within Italy. Then you have to ask if Australia hypothetically win, who will they cohost with? There’s no way to contact is going to go down under.

I don’t think Flo Rida is the main reason why San Marino is doing so well with the odds. The song is just really catchy. Yes, you can say that’s it’s just a pop song like many others etc., but you know that many Eurovision fans enjoy dance bops and it’s just a great song to dance to. Snehit has a great voice, she is very charismatic, so it can really look good on stage and make the fans dance and have fun.

People are so easily impressed by name dropping. Is Flo Rida’s part in the song that impressive, if he actually is present in Rotterdam? I don’t think so. Also, I personally think that buying him to boost Senhit is not exactly indicating a lot of faith in her as an artist. In 2011, she was one of my favorites and I hope she’ll be on stage without the rapper PR circus. It’s like Bosnia 2016. The rap messed up an otherwise pretty nice song. For me, anyway.

Imo, it is okay to collaborate with a famous star to represent a country. There were many representatives who actually do not have roots to their represented country so far. Also, some of the countries will never have enough points due to political, geographical or other reasons. The effort San Marino puts this year is kind of a justice against this chaotic system.

I’m getting sick of this bluster, to be honest. The song is nothing new and the only reason San Marino is even in the top 10 with the bookies and getting this kind of traction is because Flo-Rida is featuring on the track. Flo-Rida hasn’t had a hit since 2012 or 2013 and given the current global circumstances it’s unlikely that he will actually appear on the stage in May. It’s time for a reality check; this song will not win Eurovision and it will not finish in the top 10. Having said that, I think it will qualify (albeit… Read more »

As unlikely as it is that San Marino would win (and it is incredibly unlikely) then bookmakers would face an incredible loss….hence the lowering of odds. It’s pretty basic, really.

How much money are people betting on that, I ask myself. Closer to 1 euro or 1000 euros?

I’m actually surprised at how much Brits spend on their actual wagers. I remember when Leicester City won the premier league (the 5000/1 odds one) and in the newspapers, there were reports of people who had bet up to 1000 GBP on that happening. Like, who does that? 😉
