Michele Perniola and Anita Simoncini will represent San Marino!

Hey everyone!

Ending a 3 year run of Valentina Monetta representing San Marino with varying levels of success, SMRTV have selected Michele Perniola and Anita Simoncini to represent the country in Vienna.

Who are they? 

They are both 16 years old, making them the youngest pair to ever compete in Eurovision. Michele won the talent show ‘Ti lascio una canzone’ on Rai and represented his country in their first Junior Eurovision appearance in 2013.

Anita Simoncini has studied singing as part of a choir directed by Fausto Giacomini and is studying with Linda Hermes. Continuing with the Junior Eurovision link, she was one-fifth of ‘The Peppermints’, representing San Marino in this year’s Junior Eurovision.

San Marino debuted in Eurovision in 2008 and have failed to qualify for the final on every occasion, up until this year in Copenhagen, where Valentina Monetta qualified with the song ‘Maybe’ to eventually place 24th overall.

Let’s see what the fans say:

“I wanted Paola & Chiara or Senit” – Charlton, Malta.

“Young and fresh I like it good luck San Marino” Bradley, UK

So there’s a mixed bunch of reviews; only time will tell, how well do YOU think San Marino will do this year?

See you for the next selection!
