San Marino: Valentina Monetta releases her third Eurovision entry!

San Marino's entry has been revealed and I'm really impressed. Valentina is representing the landlocked country for the third year in a row, after failing to qualify in Baku and Malmo. I really hope her luck will change this year. The song was officially presented moments ago during a special TV program and you can listen to it here!

Valentina Monetta was announced as the Sammarinese representative back in June 2013 and expectations have been high. The song was composed by Ralph Siegel and it was penned by Mauro Balestri. After writing several songs for the contest, it was decided "Maybe (Forse)" would go to Eurovision because it plays on Valentina’s jazz strengths. It appears the English version will be used in Copenhagen. "Maybe (Forse)" will naturally feature on Valentina's next album. The reception from ESC fans has been mixed. Some folk are saying it's dated but I think it's really lovely. A stunning video-clip, too. Good luck Valentina! This song is defiantly one of the best entries this year. Will it be third time lucky for Valentina and San Marino?! Maybe...
