San Marino in Eurovision
San Marino debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008 with Miodio and is yet to win the event. The landlocked country has participated in Europe’s favorite television show 10 times and has only made it to the Grand Final twice ( in 2014 when Valentina Monetta placed 24th in the Grand Final and in 2019 when Serhat placed 20th in the Grand Final).
Valentina has flown the Sammarinese flag at the Eurovision Song Contest four times ( 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017).
Senhit was set to represent San Marino at Eurovision 2020 with her entry ‘Freaky‘, but the event was cancelled due to the COVID 19 outbreak. She is back in the game this year and will represent the landlocked country at Eurovision 2021 with her entry ‘Adrenalina‘.
