In 2012, Valentina Monetta flew the Sammarinese flag with The Social Network Song although failed to qualify. Then she decided to give it another go with Crisalide (Vola) - and she didn't make it, although she was close. Therefore, Valentina decided to give it another shot this year! She'll perform Maybe in Copenhagen. The song is actually my favourite entry from Valentina - and I really would love to see San Marino in the grand final. Maybe that would encourage other microstates (like Monaco, Luxembourg and Andorra) to return in the near future. She's recently released a new album, entitled Sensibilità.
The Sammarinese was composed by Ralph Siegel with lyrics by Mauro Balestri. Valentina will sing the English version in Copenhagen - although she has recorded an Italian version. Normally I support songs in the native language, but I feel Valentina and her team made the right choice when deciding to sing in English. There have been little details revealed about Valentina's performance in Copenhagen. I would be thrilled to see San Marino make the final.. You can read my exclusive interview with Valentina here! Buona fortuna, Vale! <3
