In an official press conference the Sammarinese broadcaster SMRTV has just announced its entrants for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest: It’s been decided that Michele Perniola and Anita Simoncini will represent San Marino in Vienna!
Neither Vincenze Perniola nor Anita Simoncini are newcomers to the Eurovision fandom: Vincenze marked San Marino’s debut to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest last year. With his song O-o-O Sole intorno a me he finished 10th (out of 12). Anita was a part of The Peppermints, a girlband that represented the microstate in this year’s JESC just two weeks ago. She will turn 16 right on time before the contest in May and is therefore eligible to participate.
