San Marino

Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite 

Valentina Monetta – Crisalide (Vola) | 11th place, 47 points (Semi-Final)

When I had to pick my own favourite, which you can see over at the Eurovision Union, it suddenly hit me. There isn’t a single entry from San Marino that I really like. I believe that every nation, even the microstates, are able to deliver at Eurovision. But so far, this nation hasn’t done it for me. Valentina Monetta is loved within the community, but if we are honest, she doesn’t have the impact of a true artist. With many acts from San Marino I always get this feeling of amateurism. This was her best attempt though. A bit cliché, but that is what you get with a Siegel-song. The flags of the fans blocking various songs is what bothers me most in the performance.

Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite

Serhat – I Didn’t Know | 12th place, 68 points

You’ve got to have some love for Serhat! I am unsure whether I prefer the original version or the disco remake they went with at Eurovision. Either way, this song is unique – perhaps not in a ‘WOW, this could WIN’ way but it was a spectacle nonetheless!
