San Marino 2017: Valentino Monetta, Jimmie Wilson (and Ralph Siegel…) are back! and it’s not a joke

SAN MARINO – The tiny republic has just revealed its entry for Kiev. 

“Spirit Of The Night” composed (once more) by “Eurovisionaurus” Ralph Siegel, will be performed by a bi-national duo. American-born, Germany-based Jimmie Wilson will have the honour to share the stage with… Valentina Monetta! With this 4th Eurovision participation, the lady seems now to be the only singer in the microstate! 

This up-tempo song is a pure Siegel work of art: very Eurovisionesque, a bit outdated, made to please Eurofans of the 1980’s. This is his 24th Eurovision entry (!!!).

Back in January, the national broadcaster called foreign producers for help in order to send an entry to the contest. For the 5th time, the German veteran could not ignore the sanmarinese call.

Salut! Born just a few days after Marie Myriam's last victory for my homeland (that's a sign), I've been an ESC fan since Zagreb 1990. In late 2013, I was lucky enough to join the Oikotimes team and even attended my very first contest in situ in Wonderful Copenhagen. Then it was Vienna, Sofia, Stockholm and soon it will be Valletta and Kiev. More to come...
