She’s the Freaky Queen who, over the course of the past two years, has been a major talking point among Eurovision fans and pretty much anyone who has felt compelled to Google “San Marino.”
And now Senhit — who represented the Most Serene Republic in 2011, 2020 and 2021 — is bidding farewell to her latest Eurovision journey with a special behind-the-scenes cut of her song “Adrenalina”. The video brings together clips of her time in Rotterdam — from hanging with Flo Rida on her hotel balcony to working the turquoise carpet, where she had everyone from Uku Suviste and Anxhela Peristeri to me and Krista Siegfrids chanting uh-dren-uh-lee-nuh.
The backstage video officially brings Senhit’s #FreakyTripToRotterdam series to an end. It’s a bittersweet ending to a glittering journey that saw her cover songs from “Cheesecake” to “Roi” while addressing issues from police brutality to the objectification of women. Italian visionary Luca Tommassini — he of Madonna fame — oversaw the creative process and all those fabulous wigs. Each video felt like a dream.
Writing on Instagram, Senhit teased that this is only the beginning.
“I lived my dream. I made it once again. This time it took two years of hard and passionate work but at the end it was amazing. My Freaky Trip To Rotterdam is officially over…See you all in my next dream. Coming very soon.”
She signed the caption with: “Love you all, I’ll be back.”
