San Marino and Senhit are gearing up in full steam for Eurovision 2021. When will we hear the 2021 Sammarinese Eurovision entry?

SMRTV, the Sammarinese national broadcaster, has announced that Senhit’s Eurovision 2021 entry will be premiered on 23 February.

Alesandro Cappichioni will be heading the Sammarinese delegation once again, whilst Luca Tommassini will be Senhit’s creative director in Rotterdam.

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.

SMRTV has invited the multi talented artistst to fly the Sammarinese flag in Rotterdam again. She will be gracing the Eurovision stage for the second time, having represented the country back in 2011.

Senhit has released the cover version of the 2013 Greek Eurovision entry  ‘Alcholol is free‘ as part of her Freaky Road to Rotterdam project:

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).
